James Thomas Meyers, 'Jim', AKA 'Uncle Jim'


Jim was born on July 9, 1968 in Panorama City, California. He was the fourth child of Raymond and Audrey Meyers. Jim is survived by his wife, Adriana Meyers, his mother, Audrey and his four siblings: Valerie Grosjean, Gregory Meyers, Ronald Meyers and MaryAnn Newsome.

Jim grew up in a small house with a large family in Agoura Hills. He was the youngest of four children, but he could do no wrong. At the age of 18, he went to work at a civil engineering firm in Westlake, California. Not long into his career at BLC Surveying, he and his partner, Jim Broms, purchased the company and launched a successful business.

In 1989, mini Jim was born, AKA Alex Grosjean. Alex was Jim's nephew, but the bond between them was like no other. He thought of Alex as a son; they were truly inseparable.

Jim was introduced to Adriana by her sister and their first kiss was on March 17, 1993. On their first date, Jim brought along Alex. This inseparable duo became the inseparable trio. Shortly thereafter, Jim romantically proposed to Adriana at the family cabin in Colorado and married her on September 3, 1994 at St Jude's Catholic Church in Westlake, California. Adriana was the love of his life, and Jim made sure the entire world knew. The newlyweds moved to a house with an acre of land in 1995 that soon became known as the Meyers zoo. Here they kept their two horses, Shawno and Eddie, their two dogs, Tara and Charlie, and their two cats, Chelsea and Lizzie. His horses, dogs and cats were family.

Jim's passions included golf, boating, dirt bikes and an annual Jamaica vacation to celebrate his wedding anniversary and his wife's birthday. He could be found most weekends golfing with close friends or on his 29-foot Commander cigarette boat.

This past year, Jim dedicated his life to helping his mother fight cancer. He had been her strength when his father, Ray Meyers, lost his battle with cancer on May 11, 1995. Jim was very close to his father and his passing had a prolific affect on his own transition into manhood. Without asking, Jim took charge and most importantly he tenderly carried us through the grief. When his mother's second husband, Arthur Combs, died in 2015, Jim once again took charge and made sure that his mother was taken care of.

His last week of life was a wonderful time. He and Nana celebrated their 22nd wedding anniversary in their 'home away from home', Negril, Jamaica. It was a place to be happy, a place to be relaxed and most importantly a romantic place to celebrate his love with the most important person in his life, Nana.

Jim always lit up the room, no matter how small or grand. He has touched and filled all our hearts with a lifetime of love. We are all blessed and grateful to be a part of his journey through this beautiful life.
