Born on June 30, 1950, in the vibrant city of Chicago, James was the son of James and Sophie (Leshevitz) Holub. As fate would have it, he emerged as a warrior, a veteran of the United States Army Special Forces, serving his country during the tumultuous Vietnam War.

His career journey reflected a man unafraid to tackle new challenges, embodying the essence of resilience.

Beyond the laborious aspects of life, James found joy in the physicality of sports and the tranquility of fishing. Boxing became more than a pastime; it was an expression of his strength and discipline. Muskie fishing allowed him moments of reflection and serenity by the water’s edge, where the rhythmic cast of a line mirrored the steady beat of his heart. Working on cars became a canvas for his mechanical prowess, a space where he could transform the ordinary into the extraordinary.
