James was an engineer with a degree from Widener University. He suffers from a seizure disorder, and a fall during a seizure episode resulted in a subdural hematoma. He was in a coma for 3 days. He lost his job, and subsequent health problems related to the hematoma have confined him to a wheelchair, making it difficult to access many buildings and city services. He is currently awaiting food stamps and other relief, but must take public transit daily to a community center to check his mail.
