Jim Short Obituary, Death – It is with a heavy heart that I must notify you, my dear friends in Belize, that we have just learned about the demise of Fr. Jim Short, SJ. Please accept my sincere condolences. The information just came to our attention quite lately. Jim was truly a towering figure in the realm of men. He started his career in Belize in the late 1960s and worked there until the early 2000s. He was there the entire time. The immensity of his heart was the only quality that could compete with his wicked sense of humor as the best quality.
He felt a profound affinity for Belize and all of its people throughout his life. When I went to meet him in St. Louis in November of the previous year, he still had a strong desire to go back to where he was originally from. He had a terrible recall in general, but not when it came to the things that happened to him in Belize! Congratulations, you deserve this recognition for being an outstanding and loyal servant! “May the angels accompany you into paradise; may the martyrs come to greet you and accompany you to the holy city, the new and eternal Jerusalem.”
