"Beloved husband, guiding father of one son and two daughters, nurturing grandfather of four and a lifelong volunteer, Jim Rosenberg will be sorely missed. An AYSO Area Director for many, many years; a co-founder of Pacific Soccer Club, the predecessor of AYSO United; and, the heart behind South Orange County California's VIP program, Jim didn't know the word "No". An active volunteer in his community of Lake Forest, Jim was the Chairman of the Lake Forest Chamber of Commerce and a Lake Forest Community Services Administrator. A Captain in the United States Army who served in Vietnam, Jim donated countless hours to the men and women of the United States Marine Corps, as the liaison to his home community. A giant of a man, Jim always looked for ways to enrich the lives of all who he came to meet. May he rest in peace."
