It was with great sadness that I received the news of James's passing. To meet him was to like him, and to know him was to love him. His dynamic personality won me over when i first met him in 2000. His integrity and character led to an enduring friendship. James was a true example of an honorable friend, father and husband. We often talked about his love for his family and how proud he was of you all.

You have

Dear Street Family,
You may never know how many people James touched during his life but you must have comfort in knowing that few people touch as many lives as James. Certainly he was a well recognized football player. Few photos are more infamous in Longhorn history than that of James and Coach Royal at the Arkansas game. He was also a very well known and accomplished businessman - most every Plaintiff's lawyer in the country knows the Street name. All

I would like to thank James Street for all the memories that he provided during his life. I only know about his sports career at UT, but I can imagine that there are many many that his friends and family will cherish forever.

I will keep his family and friends in my thoughts and prayers during the time of healing.

Long after the football acolades, we came upon James as a competitor. When we got to know him later, we met a wonderful, smart, trusting and driven man. It wasnt until i went to a UT/Nebraska game with him that i began to understand the respect and admiration he held within the hearts of many Texans. We have had the priveledge of working with him for many years, and he was indeed our friend. We are so saddened by his

Janie, may God bless you and your family. As a UT graduate in 1969 I never met James personally, though I know several former baseball and football teammates who spoke glowingly about James and his influence on them. May the love of all of his supporters and the peace of his being in a better place give you strength in this difficult time.

RIP Mr. Street. You were my hero and I will always remember you as one of the greatest Longhorns ever. My prayers go out to the Street family. God be with you all!

His son Huston and wife Lacie were our neighbors during the baseball season in San Diego. Although we did not get to know him well, we came to love his sweet wife and adorable boys.

I cannot think of one interview that I ever saw of Huston where he did not speak of his father and how he meant the world to him. We are brokenhearted for this devastating news.

Huston, all of us back here in San Diego have such heavy hearts for you. Know that you are loved and in our prayers!

I recall James Street as being undefeated as a starter (20-0) and culminating his college career with a come-from behind win in the Cotton Bowl over Notre Dame and winning the national title. In an era replete with legendary QBs like Roger Staubach (Navy), Gary
