  1. Hey Josephus, Jenkins, Julius and the rest of the family .I would like to express my sympathy for the passing of your father. May God comfort you all at this time.

  2. My most sincere condolences to the Dossen family. James and I worked together at the Seattle Art Museum for many years, and in that time I developed a great fondness for him. I valued his insight, his humor, his point of view on many things, and most of all, his friendship. Many were the times we’d have a good laugh over some of the strange situations we had to face while working at the museum, and often he’d have a story to relate from his life that would lend further understanding of how we can deal with the events and the obstacles of our lives. “Old Man Dossen”, as we would respectfully address him (and to which he, with a grin, would respond), was a singular individual, with an incredible lifetime of experience.

    Rest in peace, Old Man; you will be missed by all who knew and loved you.

  3. My deepest sympathy to the Dossen family. James and I go way back to 1961 when we entered College of West Africa (CWA) or College of Wild Animals (as we were referred to back then) as freshmen students. We studied and played hard together and graduated in 1964.

    The last time I saw James was in 2017 when we spent a few hours together in Seattle, Washington.

    Thanks to Jimmy for keeping me abreast about his father’s condition.

    May his soul and all the souls of the departed rest in perfect peace until we meet again.
