Jim Conkey - Our Legacy

Mr. James R. Conkey started his own company, J.R. Conkey & Associates, Inc., in 1979 in Roseville, CA. The firm specialized in commercial real estate brokerage and real estate syndication before shifting to development, construction management, and eventually heavily involved in green energy. A hard-working business owner, Jim remained active in the business throughout his life.

Jim joined the US Marine Corps and served proudly from 1968 to 1971. He bravely served in combat and was seriously wounded, receiving a Purple Heart. Jim took great pride in serving as a volunteer on both the National and Local levels to assist in the development of various programs to aid disabled veterans and their business endeavors. He served as the California Director of the Association for Service Disabled Veterans and the Treasurer of the California Disabled Veterans Business Alliance.

Sadly, Jim passed away on March 15, 2018. He touched many lives throughout his years of hard work, vision, generosity and compassion. His family, friends, employees and associates are profoundly grateful for having shared his journey with him.
