Please donate in memory of Jim J. Ackermann to Boys Town, a charity that Jim supported!

Jim was born on June 16, 1931 in Cincinnati, Ohio, the first of four children to Rudolph A. Ackermann and Lauretta Frohmiller Ackermann. He grew up in Cincinnati, Ohio and started his real estate career working with his father in construction. Jim later moved to the Washington, DC area, started his own company and was successful in the management of real estate. He received several business awards and was very active in numerous business organizations serving as President of the Institute of Real Estate Management; Apartment and Owners Association; and the one he was most proud of was being the first couple to serve as President of the Property Management Association with him in 1984 and his wife Diane serving in 1992. Jim also served on several Boards of Directors.

After retirement, Jim and Diane moved to Hertford, NC and built their dream home on the Perquimans River. He enjoyed watching grandsons and friends swimming, fishing, and boating on "his" river while hosting cook outs and dinner parties. He also enjoyed having friends and relatives visit for just relaxation and enjoying the beauty of God's work in the area surrounding his home.

Thanks for your donation!
