Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. James "Jim" Michael Palosaari (1939-2011) was an evangelist and one of the leaders in the Jesus Movement of the late 1960s and 1970s. Jim was a first generation Finn whose father emigrated through Ellis Island, N.Y., born to John Palosaari and Sara [Bishop LaVeck] (of Irish descent), in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Jim grew up on a goat farm near Oconomowoc, Wisconsin, where he attended Oconomowoc High School. He spent his early adult years in the Chicago and the Detroit theater, including The Unstabled Theater run by Edith Carroll Canter and Woodie King, Jr.. (Actress Lily Tomlin got her start in the same theater company the year Jim joined). He married Joyce Warner in Detroit (1962), and moved to New York (Long Island) with his wife and stepson, Michael. This union produced one son, Kent, and following their divorce (1967), Jim and Jeanette Palosaari became parents of a daughter in California.show more
