Jim and Suzanne Nicholson celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary on June 25. They were joined by their family at a reunion at the Broadmoor in Colorado Springs.
While stationed in Vietnam, it was Jim’s constant prayer that he would survive to return home, marry and become a father. His prayers were realized when he met and married Suzanne Ferrell of West Point, N.Y., where he had been assigned to the staff and faculty of the U.S. military academy after active duty. After a brief stint serving on a special assignment at the White House, Jim resigned his regular army commission, joined the army reserves, and he and Suzanne moved to Colorado. Jim’s career has included work in the private sector as an attorney, developer and homebuilder, and in the public sector as chairman of the Republican National Committee, U.S. Ambassador to the Holy See, and Secretary of Veterans Affairs. Currently, he is senior counsel with Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck specializing in regulatory issues, energy and health care.
Suzanne is a noted artist whose work has been regularly displayed at Foxhall Gallery in Washington, D.C. She has been integral to several significant community arts projects including Anacostia: A Place of Spirt, which celebrated African-Americans in the district’s history. The mural, Lantern of Liberty, painted on the exterior of a five-story building in downtown Philadelphia during the RNC Convention in 2000, depicted the story of Harriett Tubman and the Underground Railroad and remembered the first Republican convention in Philly in 1856 when the GOP was founded as an anti-slavery party.
Jim and Suzanne Nicholson are the parents of two sons and a daughter and are grandparents to eight children.
Mr. and Mrs. William John Goldy of Castle Pines Village are pleased to announce the engagement of their daughter, Jacqueline Ann to Chris John Wachendorfer, son of Helen and Charles Wachendorfer of Golden.
Goldy, a graduate of Cherry Creek High School and Colorado State University is vice president, incentive sales and strategic partnerships for MGM Resorts, International.
Wachendorfer is a University of Arizona graduate and is vice president, international development for Grease Monkey Intl.
A summer wedding is planned in Colorado where the couple will reside.
