James Walker is an award winning author and designer. He first began writing books because his wife, friends and distinguished writing professionals, encouraged him to tell the remarkable and moving story of his baby girl Jessica's affliction. His inspirational first book, 'Growing Up with Jessica: A True Story,' was warmly received and has won multiple author awards.
Since 1978, James and his wife Reneé, have been 24/7 caregivers for Jessica. They cite their many experiences in 'Jessica-land' as the catalyst in their continuing spiritual and emotional growth. They have traveled from despair to surviving and thriving as 'Ultimate Caregivers.' They have begun embracing the privilege they have in the care and nurturing of another human soul.
James Walker resides in the grandeur of Idaho with Renée and their children and grandchildren.
