About Jim Redden

A Special Tribute to James Redden (9/9/49 – 11/16/06)

As a gifted artist, Jim willingly (and cleverly) drew our own “J.R” – the little kidney guy sprinkled (throughout this website.  The first “kidney” he created (in sneakers, with Ks on them, yet!) graced T-shirts for the Foundation’s Walk Away From Kidney Disease.

Jim was also a recipient of the Jack G. McCray Memorial Education Fund with plans to further his artistic endeavors.  Jim underwent hemodialysis and a kidney transplant, so he was well aware of the challenges this disease presents.

Jim’s legacy to the Foundation is certainly valued.  He will be missed by all who had the honor to know him.
