The current and former employees of James Medical would love to take a moment to share a tribute to Sandra and Mike "Hawk" James, and the lovely story behind James Medical.
Hawk and Sandy formed James Medical in 1979 on a leap of faith and a $5,000 loan from Hawk's uncle, Bill Pape, from Pape Paints in Fort Wayne. They opened their first location in the Wells Street Crossing where they would watch TV together and eagerly wait for an occasional customer. The business moved to the corner of Lake and Anthony in 1984 where it started to grow as Hawk developed a great relationship with the staff at Parkview Hospital. One of their last major moves as owners came in 2004 when they moved to their current location on Coldwater Road. Both Hawk and Sandy had a profound impact on their family, friends, and all of the employees that have been a part of James Medical over the years. They have left memories that will last a lifetime.
Hawk and Sandy were married at the age of 15 and leave behind 4 sons (Mike Jr., Jesse, Frank, Doug) and a daughter (Laura). They also have 8 grandchildren, along with their spouses, and 7 great-grandchildren. Hawk and Sandy always showed a commitment to their family by being married for over 50 years and also to James Medical by growing it from a "mom and pop shop" as Hawk called it, to the most recognizable name for medical supplies in Fort Wayne. You will both be forever missed by all. Thank you from all of us!
