    Jim was a great member of our boiler business “brotherhood”. His intelligence, attention to detail and commitment to customers and fellow representatives will be sorely missed. It is a bittersweet joy to know that to be apart from the body is to be at home with the Lord. My heart and prayers go out to all of you.

  2. Bob Montgomery says:

    May God be with you and comfort you as you mourn your loss. I had the pleasure of working with Jim on several projects over the past 10 years. His passion for his work, getting it right and depth of knowledge his hallmark. A true loss for all of us.
    Rest in Peace.

    I had the honor of working with both James C. McKeegan and his father, James E. McKeegan. And, while I admired and respected Jim’s father for his lifelong accomplishments and truly gentlemanly demeanor, Jim (J.C.), I was in awe of for is superior intellect, engineering capabilities, presentations to clients, analytical skills and dedication to his profession. Jim addressed the most complex projects and applications through hard work and long hours, never missing any detail, which won him ultimate respect from the Chicago engineering community. He was CB-Kramer’s most trusted and respected sales engineer.
    On the personal side, Jim looked after me and I could always trust his judgement, good and honorable intentions. He gave me honest and good advice for the twelve years that I was closely associated with him and was personally responsible for many large accomplishments by CB-Kramer in the industrial boiler market.
    Jim had the luxury of surrounding himself with the finest co-workers a company could have and every co-worker had a true love and respect for Jim, now grieving for this man, but finding relief in the thought that he is with his Lord.
    God Bless You Jim McKeegan. Your legacy will live on!

    For the last 10 years I had the honor of working with and for Jim. He was instrumental in getting me on board at CBK and I learned so much from him. Jim was amazing with his depth of knowledge of boiler room equipment and his understanding of how the sales process worked. No one could top him when it came to raw technical talent. The boiler business has lost one of the best and on top of that he was a kind and gentle person. Rest in Peace.
