Shocked to hear that Jim Cotter has passed. He will be missed in the Illini media group. Jim loved to talk about his family, high school sports and Illini–since those are about my 3 favorite topics– I always loved seeing him.
Illini defeated Jim Cotter. Pray for his family. All I can say is that he is a very great person and very proud of his children.
Jim Cotter brought so much passion as an Illinois sports reporter. My prayers are with his family, friends and #Illini community after learning of his death. But I do know this, as a writer his words won’t be forgotten.
