James J. Coleman, Jr.

Posted on March 23, 2019

It is with great sadness that we share the news of the passing of James J. Coleman, Jr., Coast Guard Foundation Director since 1997. Mr. Coleman passed away on March 21 at his home in New Orleans.

Suffice it to say, this is a great loss for the Coast Guard Foundation and all who knew and loved Jimmy. A consummate gentleman, he led quietly and by example, and his generosity with our organization, and the Coast Guard Museum Association, and countless other organizations in New Orleans, Newport and many other places, was unparalleled.
