  1. On behalf of the NBCC and chess community, it is with deep sadness and shock to hear about the passing of James “Jimi” Wilkin, one of our club’s veternan members, who left his world on June 30, 2018, at the young age of forty-one. Jimi joined our family in 1998 and was a regular participant in many of our events for nearly two decades. Soon after joining the club, Jimi earned an expert level rating of 2020. In chess, Jimi was particularly known for his unique opening repertoire and sharp tactical and positional play. He surely put an enormous amount of energy into his games. A few of Jimi’s most memorable club achievements were winning the 2002 New Britain Summer Open Chess Championship and finishing in first place in the 2014 NBCC Championship Candidates Tournament, which automatically qualified him for the 2015 NBCC Championship. As noted in the Connecticut State Chess Association archives, Jimi won the 1992 Connecticut State High School State Championship and represented our state on a national level in Detriot later that year. Jimi had such a passion and love for chess and treasured his friendships in the club. He will be dearly missed by those who had the pleasure of knowing him. May he rest in peace in heaven.
