This is the memorial website for James Volland. I, John, have built this website for my brother, James Volland, as a way to honor his life and legacy. James Volland was born on October 27, 1966, to his loving parents, John C. and Josephine Volland. This website includes a Eulogy given by my sisters, Michele, Madonna and I. Photographs of both family and friends and some of the many awards that James Volland received during his 14-year career as a Chicago Policeman. There is also a link for you to contact me with any comments and/or suggestions. James Volland passed away on March 15, 2004, from coronary atherosclerosis that caused a massive heart attack. My brother was a fine specimen of a man who lived a very healthy life style with a rigid diet and regular exercise; unknowingly he inherited a disease that was left undetected. If you would like to honor my brother, James Volland, you can do so by making a donation in his name to the American Heart Association.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank those who helped my family and me during our time of need: especially Ken Operzedek, Craig Operzedek and Donna Roti, Ridge Funeral Home. Fr Tom Kasputis, St Rene Goupil Church; Fr Tom Nangle, Chicago Police Department Chaplain; Fr Pat Henry, St Catherine of Alexandria Church and Fr John MacNamera, St Symphorosa Church. Also, the 1000 plus friends and family members who attended services at Ridge Funeral Home and St Rene Goupil Roman Catholic Church. James Volland was entombed on St Joseph’s Day, March 19, 2004, at Queen of Heaven Cemetery, Christ the King Mausoleum, crypt 20322, tier 3.

James Volland is survived by his beloved parents, John C. and Josephine "Gigi" (nee Lucente) Volland, loving brother of Michele (Scott) Margolis, John and Madonna Volland, cherished uncle of Michael Margolis, Zachary Volland, Seth Margolis and Abrianna Margolis, also survived by many aunts, uncles, cousins and close friends.

My hope is that you will enjoy this memorial website to my brother, James Volland, as much as I did working on it under the watchful eye of my cousin, Chris Sheehy, President, Cyber Software Solutions!
