Statement on the passing of Union Pacific Chairman Jim Young, Feb. 15, 2014
I don't know that I've met anyone I admired more than Jim Young. He had a great story--growing up in South Omaha, attending UNO with the support of his wife Shirley, and succeeding through hard work and determination. And he did it all with unmatched integrity. We are extremely proud to call him an alumnus of the University of Nebraska. The University, Omaha and Nebraska have lost a good friend, an exceptional leader and a great man.
