As the CEO of Aspire, Jim leads an organization that is making our communities better by redefining what is possible for people with disabilities. Aspire serves over 900 participants, who have autism, cerebral palsy, Down syndrome and other disabilities. Several enterprise areas make up Aspire. They include Aspire Kids, Aspire Living, Aspire Careers and of course, Aspire CoffeeWorks. All have a focus on helping, encouraging and challenging kids, teens and adults to live to their fullest ability, in addition to creating communities in which everyone is accepted and welcomed. 100% of Aspire CoffeeWorks’ proceeds go back to Aspire to support things like the physical therapy that teaches a child to walk, cover the cost for a high-tech devise that helps a teenager speak and provide classes in which an adult learns how to live independently.
