James Grant Fish spent 16 years serving his country as a US Air Force reservist. Grant spent those years as a ground power equipment mechanic, maintaining and repairing aircraft support equipment. As a civilian with skills in small engine repair, he first worked for his father’s business before moving on to working at a parts distributor for small engines and teaching others how to service them. Grant moved to a shop that worked on generators before going to school to become a computer programmer in 2003. He has been working for Northwoods Consulting Partners for 16 years as a solution architect in computer systems integration.
Grant and his wife Mary Ann have been married for 34 years and have enjoyed working together building Habitat for Humanity houses after an area has been devastated by a natural disaster, traveling from New York to Alabama over the years. They have three daughters and two granddaughters, ages 10 and 8.
Grant also spent 24 years as a firefighter. He volunteered for two years while living in a small community and working part-time weekends and evenings when he moved to the Columbus, OH area, where he also worked as an EMT.
Grant began to have some medical issues in 2013 and after contracting COVID in 2021, his kidney function took a nosedive, and he started dialysis in 2022. He enjoys woodworking and looking for Ohio historical markers, of which he and Mary Ann have found over half of the 1500 in the state! He would love to be able to travel again and continue his joy of helping with disaster relief and going to NRA conventions.
Would you be willing to help Grant accomplish his desire to be there for his family and to help others in need? He has enlisted the help of a Veteran's organization called DOVE Transplant which is helping in his outreach to find his life-saving kidney donor. DOVE will assist all prospective donors throughout the process and make sure they do not incur any out-of-pocket expenses related to the evaluation or surgery.
A healthy person can live a normal life with one kidney and save this Veteran's life! Please click on the link below if you would like to learn more OR call 551-449-8319.
