September 15, 1963 – December 16, 2007

Lansing native James Michael Nickoff was kicked out of his home at age 15.  He survived on dishwashing jobs and worked his way through college, earning his B.A. in accounting at Michigan State, where he was active in the Lesbian-Gay Council.  After he moved to San Francisco, he served on the founding board of Equality California and married his partner Dave Lawson in 2004.  Nickoff took his own life at age 44.
