Jim Williams (formerly with Journal Register Company and now with The Toledo Blade) and his family were in a horrific car crash the week before Thanksgiving as they were on their way to vacation. A drunk driver hit their car and all seven passengers (two adults and five children) were injured. Jim’s 16-year-old son, an accomplished student and athlete, was killed in the crash. Another 16-year-old friend was paralyzed from the waist down. Jim and his wife both suffered head injuries but are expected to recover.
Jim served on the Local Media Association board for the past six years (his term just ended this past September). He donated his time to help our organization and the industry. Now it is time for us to help him.
LMA has set up a fund for the Williams family to help them with their many financial burdens that this accident has caused. To donate: CLICK HERE.
