CTSI Mourns James Buchanan Adams III, CTSI Property & Liability Senior Claims Examiner

James Buchanan Adams III, CTSI Property & Liability Senior Claims Examiner, passed away on April 25, 2020.  James was a valued member of the CTSI team for over 13 years.  Born in Atlanta, Georgia, James grew up in Brooklyn, New York.  He moved to Littleton, Colorado, with his family in 1989 and enjoyed the many outdoor activities Colorado has to offer. His co-workers at CTSI remember him for his kindness, his sense of humor, and the knowledge and professionalism he brought to his work. Colorado’s counties, as well as CTSI staff, greatly benefitted from James’s long experience in insurance litigation, both from his skill managing cases and from his readiness to share what he learned with his team members.  James enjoyed working with CTSI’s county members and was a wonderful presence in the CAPP Department. He will be greatly missed.
