Passing of James Olson - Long Serving Board Member & Credit Union Advocate

It’s with a heavy heart that SF Fire Credit Union notifies to our membership that James (Jim) Olson passed away on August 4th. Services were held on August 24th at St. Francis Solano Church in Sonoma, where friends, family, and colleagues paid tribute to Jim’s life and career.

Long and Storied Career of Protecting San Franciscans
Jim enjoyed a long and successful career in the San Francisco Fire Department, which began as a cadet in 1963 and concluded as Deputy Chief of Department in 1996. Always a mentor to up-and-coming firefighters, he will be remembered by many for advising them to “Never forget you started on the back step of the truck.”

Decades of Credit Union Stewardship
Having always had an interest in finances, Jim understood the positive impact our Credit Union had on the lives of its members. Serving as an elected official for over twenty years, he will be remembered for being a steward of the Credit Union who was always an advocate of the member.

Official Obituary & Online Guestbook
The Olson Family has shared the official obituary on www.sfgate.com, which also provides visitors with the ability to leave comments.

Ways to Travel Smarter with Your SF Fire Credit Union Platinum Visa®

Whether you’re already carrying a SF Fire Credit Union Platinum Visa, or you’ve yet to apply, we want to make sure you’re aware of all of the great benefits of being a cardholder – benefits that can come in handy especially when traveling.

NO FOREIGN CURRENCY EXCHANGE OR TRANSACTION FEES

For frequent world travelers, you might be familiar with a 1-3% fee that is commonly charged when you make a transaction using cards from other financial institutions. When you use your SF Fire Credit Union Platinum Visa, you will not receive a foreign transaction fee charge or exchange fees, which can make keeping track of what you’re spending a little easier.

NO OVERLIMIT FEE

Speaking of keeping track of your spending while abroad, sometimes
miscalculations can happen (or emergencies). In the event that you go over your credit limit, it could be comforting to know that we do not charge overlimit fees.

A SOURCE OF OVERDRAFT PROTECTION FOR YOUR CHECKING ACCOUNT

Much like giving our members some wiggle room by not charging an overlimit fee, you have the option to link your card to your checking account to use your Visa as a source of backup funds. Set this up within Online or Mobile Banking, or by contacting us.

VISA TRAVEL SERVICES

Visa offers a robust set of services for our members, they include:

  • Auto Collision Waiver: As long as you pay for your rental car with your Visa, your rental will have coverage at no additional charge that will reimburse for damage due to collision or theft.
  • Travel Emergency Assistance Services: Available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, this service includes help with lost luggage location, ticket replacement, legal and medical referrals, and more.

POINTS EARNED ON PURCHASES WITH NO ANNUAL FEE

Lastly, all of that spending will help you earn Extra Awards points – where, for every dollar you spend, a point is earned that can be redeemed for cash, gift cards or future flights.
