Remembering Jim, a Dedicated and Passionate Educator

Mar 7, 2024

James “Jim” Robinson passed away on January 25, 2024, after a short illness. Jim played an instrumental role in the establishment of our Medical Assistant (MA) Apprenticeship program and worked with us as a contracted instructor for the program. With his years of experience, expertise, and passion for teaching, he was not only a leader but a mentor to both apprentices and instructors alike.

His dedication to the medical assisting profession and his enthusiasm for education have left a mark on our program- and on the hearts of those who had the privilege to work alongside him.

We celebrate Jim’s remarkable contributions to our community. His ability to mentor, coupled with his unique sense of humor, brought light and laughter into our lives. Jim’s commitment to excellence and his unwavering support for his students and colleagues have significantly shaped the quality and success of our program. His legacy will undoubtedly continue to influence and inspire future generations of healthcare professionals.

Read Renton Technical College’s tribute to Jim. The James Robinson Memorial Scholarship for Medical Assistant Careers to support students in their medical assistant program has been established by Dr. Christopher Carter, Dean of Allied Healthcare at Renton Technical College.

Our thoughts are with everyone impacted by this immense loss. We find solace in our collective memories of Jim.
