Jim Perri is a 53-year-old husband, father, grandfather, son and friend. He is very, very ill. Jim was diagnosed with end-stage liver disease just over one year ago and his near future will depend on a liver transplant. Medical costs as well as future transplantation costs are overwhelming and more than the family can handle alone.
Jim is the father to 5 children and 17 grandchildren and has another grandchild on the way. Jim was born and raised in Denver, Colorado, yet he is a proud Oakland Raiders football fan. Having moved to Florida about 27 years ago, Jim had a very successful career as a concrete finisher, working on some of the best buildings here in the Tampa/Orlando area. He is very proud of his work around the area. It can be seen at Universal Studios and Busch Gardens, the FBI building and the County building as well all the various home communities and commercial buildings in the area. Jim has helped in the growth of the Tampa/Orlando area and is very proud of it. Jim is a kind and thoughtful man who has gone out of his way to help the elderly, the homeless and of course rehome pets in need. Anyone who knows Jim, you know he has a joke for every occasion and always makes you laugh. Together, Jim and his family are committed to seeing him through this transplant to see his family grow.
