Jim Bledsoe was born in Nashville, Tennessee and lived his early childhood in the area of Columbia, Tennessee. Jim majored in Electrical Engineering without fully comprehending the scope of the curriculum and the academic rigor involved, however he knew it paid well. He graduated in 1964 with his BSEE degree and immediately married the love of his life, Jackie in June of that year. After college he joined General Electric Company in Huntsville, Alabama and spent 9 years toiling in obscurity on the Space Program’s Ground Support Equipment through the Moon Landing of 1969.
Jim joined York International as VP of Engineering for the residential HVAC product group and retired in 2005 as VP and General Manager of the York Marine Systems Group. Jim served on the advisory board of both Penn State York and New School of Lancaster. Retirement suits him quite well as he continues to enjoy cooking and observing with a sense of awe the world events and the political landscape.
