May 26, 1930 – Dec. 31, 2013

James Edward Hogan died peacefully on Dec. 31 at University Retirement Community in Davis. Born in Chicago, Ill., Jim was the eldest of five children and grew up in the midst of a close, extended family. The strong boyhood friendships formed there lasted for his entire life.

Jim valued his Jesuit education at St. Ignatius High School, Loyola University Chicago and Georgetown Law School. Before law school he served for two years in Naval Intelligence during the Korean war. After graduation from Georgetown he immediately became a member of the faculty there. He taught there for three years and then joined the law firm of Arthur Hilland in Washington D.C. where he was a successful trial attorney. During his years in practice he continued to teach at both Georgetown and George Washington Universities.

In 1956 he married Sandra Nelson. Jim was recruited to join the new law school at UC Davis in 1967 and the family moved to Davis, where he was a much-loved and respected teacher until 2007. Jimʼs passion was teaching and he is remembered fondly by the many students he influenced and by his colleagues there. His gift for clarifying complex legal concepts and his unique and memorable sense of humor made an impact on students both in Davis and throughout the state as he taught Bar Review courses and summer sessions for many years.

In 1984, he married Janice Moller. Jim and Jan enjoyed almost 30 years of a close and loving marriage. Jim relaxed at Oakland Aʼs and San Francisco 49ers games, loved taking people to the horse races and kept family and friends laughing at every possible moment. He was the consummate gentleman and his kindness, generosity, humor, love and loyalty will be greatly missed.

Jim was pre-deceased by his parents, David and Josephine Hogan, his sister Mary Josephine, his brother Edward and his infant daughter Maureen Catherine. He is survived by his wife Jan, daughter Jennifer Hogan (Dorothy), son Sean Hogan (Marisa), daughter Maura Hogan, son Kerry Hogan (Gabriela), stepdaughters Elisabeth Trelford (John), Tricia Barnes (John), Andrea Moller (Mario) and grandchildren Dominic and Carly Trelford, Zachary Moller, Reilly and Sydney Nycum, Skylar, Sierra and Wyatt Barnes and Saoirse and Nicolas Hogan. He is survived also by his sister Helen Anderson (Robert), his brother David Hogan (Dolores), his cousins William Ibe, Joanne May and John Duffy and nephews and nieces.

The family is grateful to the staff at Atria Covell Gardens, University Retirement Community and Yolo Hospice for their care. In honor of his wishes there will be no formal services. If friends wish to contribute to Jimʼs favorite causes, the family suggests the National Fund for Facial Reconstruction, 333 E. 30th St., Lobby Unit, New York, NY 10016 or Legal Services of Northern California, 619 North St., Woodland, CA 95695.
