Keith James: Tales from an "Unbelievable Life"


“Who could have written this script?”

Forty-five years ago, JRA CEO Keith James took a summer job at Kings Island theme park with his friend and mentor, Jack Rouse. He could have never known the adventures, experiences and friendships that would follow, and the lives he would touch along the way.

On April 2, 2016, Keith James received one of the industry’s highest honors – the Buzz Price Thea Award for a Lifetime of Distinguished Achievements.

In excerpts from his Summit Keynote address and Thea Award acceptance speech, Keith offers his lessons learned and thanks all those responsible for his “unbelievable life.”

The new 12,000-square-foot museum will chronicle the rise of Nazism and the dismantling of democracy, recount the stories of survivors who rebuilt their lives in Cincinnati, and use the lessons of the Holocaust to inspire action today. JRA is honored to be providing planning, design, project management and art direction alongside internationally renowned firm Berenbaum Jacobs Associates.
