Obituary

James passed away on Sunday, December 15, 2019, at the age of 77.

Jim was born in Payson, Utah, to James Sterling and Nelda (nee Snelson) Reece. The family moved to Denver when Jim was two, and he attended public schools there, graduating from East High School in 1960. He did his undergraduate work at Yale University before earning master’s and doctoral degrees from Harvard Business School. He taught at HBS from 1970 until 1975 and then at the University of Michigan Ross School of Business until his retirement in 2007. He was the co-author of several best-selling accounting textbooks.

Jim served for many years as a trustee of the Ann Arbor Summer Festival, including a term as Board Chair, and later as a member of the Finance Committee. He was an active member of the Rotary Club of Ann Arbor following his retirement. He was also an avid U of M sports fan.

He is survived by his loving wife, Bonnie Bucks Reece; children, Chuck and Chloe (Mike Wieczorek); grandchildren, Audrey, Logan, Megan, and Connor; and his brother, S. Richard (Ruth).

Memorial contributions may be made in his honor to the Ann Arbor Summer Festival, 210 Huronview Blvd., Suite 1, Ann Arbor, MI 48103 or to the Michigan Alzheimer’s Disease Center, 2101 Commonwealth Blvd., Suite D, Ann Arbor, MI 48105.
