James Clark

James L. Clark, Jr., passed away at his home in Northridge on May 1, 2021, at the age of 91. He leaves his wife Lyn of 61 years, son William, daughter Karen, and grandsons Jordan and Kasey.
After graduating from Compton High School, Jim—as he was called by all who knew him—joined the United States Air Force where he served in England for three years and then in the Korean conflict for one year. Upon his discharge, he attended Pasadena City College and then transferred to the University of Southern California where he majored in business. At USC he earned a bachelor of science degree in business and a master of arts in education. He taught high school business education courses for five years and then taught in the School of Business at California State University, Los Angeles, for three years.
Jim joined the Business Department faculty at Pasadena City College in 1964 and later became the department chair of this division. He served in this position for 17 years. During his tenure at Pasadena City College, he was involved in several professional organizations such as the California Business Education Association, Delta Pi Epsilon, and the National Business Education Association. He co-authored three business textbooks and was a national speaker for business and educational organizations. He retired from full-time teaching and administration in 1992, but he continued to teach part-time at Pasadena City College until 2001. His remaining retirement years were spent playing golf and traveling with his family.
