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.
