James Henderson

Jim Henderson graduated from Pacific Lutheran University with BS in Chemistry and Biology. He followed this up as an Air Force pilot for 5 years, then went to graduate school at Oregon State University where he earned an MS in Oceanography. During his career he explored the world’s oceans while doing highly complex technical and scientific projects. His last major project involved the build, test, and put into operation a unique deep diving manned submersible.
During retirement he can often be found fly fishing in various streams and rivers and exploring remote locations in the western US and Canada.
When home on Bainbridge Island he is frequently at the BARN in the Tech Studio or in the Fiber Arts area sewing items like zippered pouches, glasses cases, and other items to help keep things organized while he is out and about. He is a licensed Amateur Radio operator (K7EXP).
