Outdoor spaces, particularly our National Parks, captured Jim’s imagination as a boy. Many of his early years were spent in Colorado where he developed a deep connection to the land. So after a business career having led multiple international industrial concerns, Jim founded The DuBose Foundation in celebration of that connection.
Throughout his life, every opportunity for outdoor adventure brought joy. Joy not only from the wonder of nature itself, but also for the important teachings it offered. Paramount in that education was the larger lesson of conservancy. So for Jim, it only seemed right that Conservation, Education, and Opportunity serve as the foundation’s tenets.
Jim has a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering from the University of Missouri-Rolla and a MBA from Washington University in St. Louis.
Jim and his wife Kate call Tucson, Arizona home, and between them have four adult children.
