This weekend we learned of the passing of someone who has been a part of the La Marzocco family for many years. The La Marzocco team was heartbroken to learn that Jim Karr, of SteamVolt in Chicago, died in a tragic work accident on Saturday. Jim was a brilliant technician who trained some of the finest technicians across the US. He was a teacher and mentor to members of our staff, and was a business partner and friend of La Marzocco’s for more than 20 years.

Jim will be missed by all of us at La Marzocco. Our hearts go out to Jim’s family, our community of technicians, and everyone who knew and loved Jim.
