ELFA Mourns the Passing of Long-Time Member Jim Humphrey

Posted 11/06/2023

ELFA is mourning the loss of Jim Humphrey, Senior Vice President of Sales at member company Odessa. Jim was a valuable member of ELFA for many years who served on the Operations & Technology Committee and participated in many association events.

As Odessa shared this morning: Jim has served as a beloved member of both the equipment leasing industry and Odessa for nearly two decades, championing integral change and growth throughout the industry. The kindness and consideration Jim embodied each and every day helped define the cultural fabric of the industry, both within and far beyond Odessa's walls. He will be deeply missed by all of us.

As a long-time supporter of youth sports and a soccer dad, he would often be found driving teammates to practice, being a cheerleader for all, and many times covering fees for those who needed assistance. In lieu of flowers, the family asks those interested to donate to The Open Goal Project to honor his memory: https://www.opengoalproject.org/

A service will be held at St. John the Apostle Catholic Church in Leesburg, VA on Saturday, November 18th, 2023, at 10:00 a.m. to raise a glass of his favorite Chardonnay and celebrate a life well lived.

Our hearts go out to Jim’s family at this difficult time.
