Jim Dehoney: In Memoriam
It’s with heavy hearts that we write these words today and say goodbye to a true industry leader—Jim Dehoney.
We remember Jim as an innovator. Having been in this industry for decades he never settled for the status quo and consistently worked to improve not just the client experience but the solutions available to them as well. He was a pioneer of technology within the benefits and retirement space—forward thinking, agile, and a visionary who understood not just what where we were going, but what we needed to get there—and he would build it. He blazed the trail for so many who came up in the business after him with inspiration and a focus to which we could all aspire.
However he was not just a leader of industry, he was an inspirer and leader of people. Jim built a respected, strong, and fast-growing business that persists today because of the talented and capable team of people he attracted and mentored along the way. We were incredibly proud when Dehoney became a Navacord Broker Partner and Jim left his mark through his collaborative spirit and leadership across our Benefits and Retirement line; always willing to lend his expertise, a hand, or personal drive to push our practice forward.
He was a community builder both in and outside the office—giving back to his colleagues, his clients, and those in need. It is a legacy that we will guard closely.
Jim was a true gentleman. He will, in our business and your hearts, be never gone and always remembered.
