Jim Austin

Jim Austin, a principal food service manager for Campus Restaurants, died of a heart attack in his sleep Jan. 6.

Austin was hired as a food service manager in Housing and Dining Services in June 1985, and worked there ever since.

"He was known by quite a lot of the campus. He reached out and touched everybody," said colleague Tom Spivey, who worked with Austin at Campus Restaurants for 15 years. "He has very vibrant and outgoing. His personality was large."

Austin is survived by his wife, Cherie Austin.

The campus flag was flown at half in his honor and a memorial was held in Antioch, Calif.
