James J. Rorimer Endowed Fund for Entrepreneurship
Jim Rorimer ’07, a native Clevelander and a New Yorker at heart, passed away peacefully on December 7, 2021, after a courageous battle with esophageal cancer that was waged on two continents for nearly two years. Jim was very entrepreneurially minded, and sadly, his life was cut short before any of his business ideas could come to fruition. The James J. Rorimer Endowed Fund for Entrepreneurship will honor his legacy by providing student entrepreneurs at Denison the assistance they need to launch their own businesses successfully.
Make a gift in Jim’s memory and support future generations of Denison entrepreneurs. The giving link is:
