Founder and President, Ed James entered the United States Marine Corps at the age of 17. While in the Marines, he logged more than 700 hours in CH-53 Delta helicopters as an Aviation Life Support Technician and Crew Chief. Upon his departure from the Marine Corps, Ed determined that his success in life would come from hard work, honesty, and the ability to help others. It was then that he decided to become a man for others and give back to those who served our country as he once did.
In 2009, Ed founded Nicodemus, Inc., to provide support for veterans and first responders. In the ensuing decade since its foundation, Nicodemus has successfully partnered with many national charities including the United Way, Shriner’s Hospital for Children, Florida Sheriff’s Youth Ranch, Wounded Warrior Project, Susan G. Komen for the Cure, The Veteran’s Trust, and most recently, the Association of the U.S. Army.
