Jim Rosas, Jr.

10/10/67 -2/21/17

Beloved Father, Coach, Friend, and Partner.

Co-Founder @revenue

Jim Rosas, long time Chicago business leader, networker and beloved sales coach and trainer, was found dead at the home that he shared with his business and life partner, Marie Hale, at the age of 49 on February 21, 2017.

Jim’s impact on the Chicago business community was evident in the more than 150 people that came together to celebrate Jim’s life at his memorial. This impact was further echoed by the litany of calls and outreach to not only to his grieving partner and team members of his latest successful venture, @revenue, but in the continuing supportive calls to his past students and clients who were also shocked and deeply saddened by the sudden passing.

“I was Jim’s client almost 10 years ago, and there are still about a dozen times a week that I wish I could call him for one of his famous pep talks or try to ask myself ‘What would Jim say?'”, says Laurie Lee, owner of Swift Passport. ‘His impact on my life and the lives of thousands of others has changed us all for the better.”

Jim truly lived his passion by empowering small businesses to create more profit and giving them and their families a brighter future. Drawing his from depth of knowledge fostered by his time at the Chicago Tribune, Value Check and Field Results Inc., to name a few, his organization, @revenue, experienced astounding growth in the 9 months that he was at the helm before his passing. As it reorganizes, the kindness of those that were impacted by Jim have helped to keep it thriving and growing in homage to his signature energy and zest for life.

His partner, Marie Hale, long-time Chicago business owner, is focused on continuing the dream they had built together. “The heart of our organization has not changed. We are here to change the world one small business at a time. The outpouring of love and support is an amazing blessing and our whole team is grateful to be partnering with those that want to honor Jim’s memory in such a meaningful way.”
