Our Green Ribbon Tribute With Jim's passing we have lost one of the true icons of and champions for Peoria. While we are saddened by the loss, his spirit will live on in the hundred - if not thousands - of people he has inspired over the decades. That's why we are sharing Our Green Ribbon Tribute: to commemorate this man who wanted everyone around him to succeed - especially the city he loved so much. So when you see those little green ribbons, we hope you will be reminded of all the big - and little - things Jim has done to help countless others succeed. Please share your stories about Jim Maloof here.

Cindy and I extend our prayers and deepest sympathies to the Maloof family and the people of Peoria, who comprise his larger family.

Jim Maloof was a national treasure. In the 1980s, with America regaining its confidence, his mayoral optimism was like a bell ringing in the town square calling us all to our senses, to count our blessings, to be thankful to God for all we have, and to do good things for others with our talents. He spent years rebuking the negative hopelessness of the phrase, "last person to leave Peoria, please turn out the lights," and he defeated the concept behind this expression by shining his own light so brightly that his spark ignited the light in many others. Yes, he lit up the darkness, but he also conquered the silence with a joyful song, and chased away isolation with a hug.

He cared for all people, but he had a special place for the new generation. Few adults outside my family spent as much time mentoring, encouraging, and teaching me leadership almost 30 years ago in my youth than did Mayor Maloof.

Where he has gone, he is undoubtedly organizing a new affiliate of St. Jude, taking on the song leader role with an even larger sing-along, and lovingly embracing every angel he meets. With the phrase he often used to conclude his notes to people, I sign this short tribute in his memory: "God Bless!"
