This is some sad news coming from GlobalVR today that one of their employees, Jim Wallin has passed away. He was a true industry vet, beginning his work in the arcade business with Atari in 1979 where he stayed until 1990 (when it was Atari Games). He also has been working at GlobalVR for the past 5 years as their purchasing manager. He is survived by “his companion Louise, Alberto, to whom he was a father figure, a sister and brother-in-law and family, as well as the many friends he has made throughout the course of his life.”

Our condolences to his family and friends and thanks to Jim for all his work in the industry.
