Jim Soles was a true Virginia Gentleman. A great teacher, friend and mentor, he launched several generations of political leadership, inspired thousands of students toward success in many different occupations and embodied the values of integrity, dignity and compassion.
His uncanny ability to find the best in all people and his boundless optimism improved the lives of all who knew him. Dr. Soles is like your favorite book, the one you always cherish and want to read over and over.
