Judge Nilon was very passionate about addressing the opioid crisis and took
seriously his role as chairman of the Criminal Justice Advisory Board.
Quoting President Judge Chad Kenney, "Jim Nilon was a great man, just a true
gentleman," he said. "He could talk about any topic - baseball, the Civil War and
maybe a little politics . . . He was well read, intelligent . . . a smart lawyer."
We have lost a colleague of unbounded energy in whatever endeavor he undertook.
When he came across an activity that sparked his interest, he was indomitable in
purpose and exhaustless in endurance, dedicating himself with uncommon passion until
he excelled. We are here today to recall this man who lived among us, who inspired us,
and in our collective memory we know that he, in some way, is still with us.
Our challenge is to measure ourselves against him and his accomplishments, to
replicate his qualities and strive to be better for having known this good man.

Honorable James F. Nilon, Jr., a dedicated preservation
volunteer on one of our nation's great battleships,
the USS New Jersey ...
The four principal goals of the Battleship New Jersey Museum & Memorial are the
restoration and preservation of the USS New Jersey (BB-62) and Iowa Class US Navy
battleship that was first commissioned in May of 1943; to honor the 55,000 sailors and
marines that served on the New Jersey through her four commissionings; the education
of the public about the ship's history; and the improvement of the waterfront area of the
City of Camden, where the ship is berthed.

AMERICA'S MOST DECORATED BATTLESHIP
USS New Jersey (BB-62) ("Big J" or "Black Dragon" ) is an Iowa-class battleship,
and the second ship of the United States Navy to be named after the US state of New
Jersey.
New Jersey was decommissioned for the last time in 1991 (after serving a total of
21 years in the active fleet), having earned a Navy Unit Commendation for service in
Vietnam and 19 battle and campaign stars for combat operations during World War II,
the Korean War, the Vietnam War, the Lebanese Civil War, and service in the Persian
Gulf. After a brief retention in the mothball fleet, she was donated to the Home Port
Alliance in Camden, New Jersey, and began her career as a museum ship 15 October
2001. *
