Sheehan, Jim

Jim Sheehan '66 is the founder of Center for Justice (Spokane, Washington). He worked for more than twenty years as a public defender in Eastern and Western Washington until he received a windfall inheritance.  He decided that, in this next unexpected chapter of his life, he would put his money to work for the greater good.  In 1999, he founded the Center for Justice, a nonprofit law firm dedicated to protecting human rights, alleviating poverty, preserving the earth, and holding the government accountable to the principles of democracy.  In addition, he also restored the old Saranac Hotel in downtown Spokane, which became the first LEED Platinum certified building in the region.  Additionally, he renovated the Community Building, the Main Market Co-op, and the Saranac Commons in order to provide affordable, beautiful homes for area nonprofit offices and small businesses in downtown Spokane.  Despite all these accomplishments, Jim feels most lucky to have a healthy, supportive family, including his beautiful partner Mary, Katy and Jule and their sons Soren and Reed, and Joe and Jane and their daughter Luisa.

Forrest, Edwin
Edwin Forrest '68 was born in San Fransisco in June of 1945 and was raised on the mean streets of Los Altos, CA. He started his business career in the construction management field and after five years started his own company. These construction projects led to his interest in natural stone and historic building restoration. His company was the leader for thirty years in Northern California, and Ed personally worked on over six hundred restoration projects.
Upon retirement, Ed took oil painting classes at Sacramento City College under Professor Chris Daubert. During these classes and with the praise and encouragement of Professor Daubert, Ed found his passion in oil painting. His style is referred to as Hard Edge but he refers to it as Hard Edge Obsession. He would like to thank Lenny Bruce and his favorite band (Lee Bob and the Truth) for continued inspiration.
