Obituary of James Pi

Please share a memory of James to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

Born in Shanghai, James Pi, 77, passed away the morning of November 2nd, 2023. He is survived by his loving wife, Katy, proud children, Jennifer (“Jen”), and Jerry and his wife Grace, and James’ grandchildren, Lianna, Selina, and Jameson. 

James attended the National Taiwan Ocean University, receiving his degree in shipping and transportation, followed by service in the Taiwan Navy. He married his wife, Katy in 1972, and together they moved to the States and established and built several businesses across various categories. His biggest dream was achieved by the creation of Victoria Cruises, a river cruise on China's Yangtze River, introducing and bringing the beauty of the Yangtze and Chinese culture to people from all corners of the world.

As a loving family man, and devoted community member, James endeavored to live a life pursuing his dreams, no matter how big or small. He believed in putting your all into everything, and giving back to the community and to causes close to his heart. 

James will be missed tremendously and he will live in our hearts forever.
