Celebrating the foods of Northern Italy



Join us in helping our dear friend Jim.


As the chef and owner of Cafe Juanita, I have had the pleasure of calling Jim Marriott my friend for 18 years.  Jim spent 14 years taking care of our guests, while making the restaurant the best it could be.  I am very grateful to Jim and have endeavored the last few years to find ways to support him as he has struggled with a diagnosis of Parkinson's disease.  I have started a Gofundme page to help with the expense related to his care.

For those of us who know Jim, service, is the first word that comes to mind. Those closest know he lives to put others before himself. He has always been a devoted son, friend, employee, and community member.

Jim planned to work "forever", but his plan to work for at least another ten years has been sidetracked due to the debilitating progression of his illness. 

If Jim touched your life in some way or cared for you, please take a moment to contribute.

I appreciate everyone's time, generosity, and compassion.
