James Street was my favorite Longhorn Football Player of all time, but he was also one of the best examples of success and giving back to the Austin Community of any UT Athlete. He will always be remembered as a great Athlete, wonderful father and great Austin Citizen. May he rest in peace and may God give his wonderful wife and sons the faith and strength they need in the days ahead. God Bless You!

Growing up James' family lived just a couple of blocks from my brothers & I and we all went through school with James & Mary. I am sorry for your loss Mary. James was a great all around kid and was nice to everyone and that smile will last for ever. My daughter and grandson, Austin, are Longhorn followers as myself & knew everything about James' career and we also have been following Houston's ability. James was an awesome human being. God Bless his wife and family and give them the strength they need.

Dear Janie and boys, our hearts break for your loss. You all had such a bight light in your lives with James at your side. The times our paths crossed through Westlake HS and around our community, we saw smiles and friendly conversation. James left a great impression. Hugs and love.

He was my favorite quarterback. I had the obortunity to meet him twice. Once in 1970 at a book signing and again years later on a plane to Maui. I got to chat with him about his football days and congratulate him on his enshrinement in the Cotton Bowl Hall of Fame. He will be missed, my sympathies to his family.

I never had the pleasure of meeting James, but I knew of him very well through a member of his James Street family here in Pennsylvania, George Audi, who spoke glowingly of James. As President Elect of our statewide Trial Bar, I can assure you that James and his team had a profound impact on the lives of our clients and on our practices. Monies that may have been squandered were protected for families in need. We knew that we
