The Mountain States Chapter of the Paralyzed Veterans of America (MSCPVA) is dedicated to transforming the lives of Paralyzed Veterans who served our country.
It is with profound sadness and a heavy heart that we announce the passing of James "Jimmy" Sack. A Veteran of the U.S. Navy, Jim Sack was a long-standing and cherished member of PVA’s family. Over the course of nearly 30 years, he encouraged many Paralyzed Veterans and their families. As the President of the Mountain States Chapter, he oversaw many new programs and increased funding to support the various needs of its membership. He was also effective as a National Director of PVA, chartering the course of priorities for all nationwide members. He was an advocate for the replacement VA facility and was instrumental in ensuring that the new Rocky Mountain Regional VA Medical Center included a 30-bed Spinal Cord Injury (SCI/D) Unit.
He was one of the true characters of our organization and his sense of humor was a refreshment when dealing with the complex challenges that come with the life of paralysis. It was a pleasure serving alongside him and he took a genuine interest in the welfare of others. He will be missed!
