Dear ones who also love Dr. Jim Rush:

donate to the Dr. Jim Rush Living Legacy Family Memorial Fund to support the writing, compilation, and publication of his book 

Over the short five years I have spent with Jim as his beloved and wife, I have been deeply touched by the stories he shared with me about his students, colleagues, and friends.  Each one revealed his extraordinary depth of wisdom and compassion. It seems even people who only met him briefly felt the profound love he had for every being.  

To honor, share, and continue Jim's life transformative legacy, I wish to ask you to share your stories of Jim with me to compile into a book, entitled: "Dog Rose of the Wild Forces: Stories of Jim’s Wisdom, Insights, and Inspirations" so that his legacy may continue to touch the lives of others, as he has so directly touched ours.


I would be honored if you would share your experience of being with Jim with me. Here are a few questions to get you going:

  • How has he touched your life?
  • What qualities do you admire in Jim and why?
  • What wisdom have you received through his words and/or simply his presence? Please include any words of wisdom, advice or suggestions he shared with you that you found of benefit.
  • What insights have you learned from Jim and how have you applied it in your own life?
  • How does he inspire you?
  • What do you appreciate about Jim?

Please be specific, ie. if you learned to meditate from Jim, then how has it helped you in your life, how/why is it important to you?

Please provide me your full name, e-mail address, how you know Jim, and the city and state where you currently live. Also, please provide your written permission to share and publish your story, name, and city. Feel free to submit more than one story, insight, or inspiration –– but please provide the previous information with each one. 

E-mail to Kaycie Marler-Rush (Jim's wife) at or submit using the form below.

Thank you so much for your love of Jim and sharing his legacy for generations to come.
