This year, we sadly lost one of ZERO’s most fearless and devoted Champions, Jim Wilhelmsen. After losing his father and grandfather to prostate cancer, Jim was diagnosed in 2013. A loving husband and father, Jim and his wife Venetia, along with their four children, have been Champions and advocates for ZERO for over eight years. His passion to raise awareness of prostate cancer was unrelenting, so much so, that Jim took virtual Capitol Hill meetings while receiving his chemotherapy treatment during the 2021 ZERO Summit. After nine years of fighting for himself, his family, and all men – Jim passed away in January. His devotion and his passion to end prostate cancer live on in the many people he impacted along his journey. “  I LIKE TO SHOW PEOPLE PICTURES of my father and grandfather, my sons and grandchildren because that’s why I’m fighting. It’s ‘ H uman O ptimism P ursued E nergetically’. And it’s pretty gratifying that I’m able to help spread

that message. “ Jim Wilhelmsen ZERO Champion
