Jim Thomson, president of the University Club of Larchmont from 2007–2009, passed away on Monday, April 9, 2012, after a long and courageous fight with leukemia. He was 52 years old.
A member of the Larchmont community for the past 20 years, he is survived by three wonderful kids—Diana, 22; David, 19; and Catherine, 14—as well as his good friend and former wife, Jamie Mooney. He also leaves behind his father, John Thomson of Bogota, Colombia, and his brother, Robert Thomson of Durham, Connecticut.
Jim was a class of 1979 graduate of Hamden Hall Country Day School in Hamden, Connecticut, and a 1983 graduate of Trinity College in Hartford. Besides his work with the University Club, he also volunteered at the Nature Conservancy, the New York Botanical Gardens as well as working the grounds of the Community Unitarian Church of White Plains.
Although the University Club is now defunct, the scholarship committee from last year will select a senior who needs financial assistance and best exemplifies the ideals of the Club—academic excellence, community engagement, and service to others.
