It is with deep sorrow that G.A. Braun announced the sudden and unexpected passing of Mr. Jim, (JC), Corrigan on May 23, 2021 by cardiac arrest, according to a news release. Corrigan was a team member of G.A.

Prior to joining G.A. Braun, JC held a sales position with Senking/ELX and was responsible for many of their successful installations in the US and Canada. An ambassador and promoter of the laundry industry, JC was active in ITRA, IATHM and TRSA. He was considered a dear friend by many in our industry and was well respected by many more. JC’s loving family includes his wife Penny, his daughters Stephanie (Tim) Darden, and Alex (Darin) Bjork, and grandchildren Roselyn, Denver, Dani, and Dutch.
JC had a passion for travel, good food, and loved good wine. He spent his free time perfecting his aim at the gun range, cooking with his wife, and making arrangements to see his daughters and play with his grandchildren. He always had a smile on his face and made everyone he met feel important and valued. He would know everything about you by the time he finished talking with you…. a true gift. He was the glue that brought everything together whether it was with family, friends, or work, he was there for you. He will be missed and never forgotten as he touched us all and made us better people because we knew him.
