James (Jamie) Redford Death – Dead :James Jamie Redford Obituary .
James (Jamie) Redford has died, according to the following statements posted on social media on October. 18, 2020.
San Francisco Firefighters Cancer Prevention Foundation 7 hrs · The fire service has lost another great ally…James (Jamie) Redford lost a battle to cancer…a true humanitarian with a deep concern for the health and safety of firefighters and the preservation of our environment….an award winning documentarian who along with fellow director, producer Kirby Walker exposed the chemical industries use of cancer causing flame retardants and the profound effect it was having on elevated rates of cancer in the firefighting profession in the HBO documentary, “Toxic Hot Seat”…Extremely ironic that we lost Kirby last year to cancer and now Jamie. Both Kirby and Jamie were honored at our 2017 Gala for bringing to light our professions plight of elevated rates of cancer due to toxic exposures. Jamie is gone but his legacy will live on in the great works he produced…Yes, gone but never forgotten. May you Rest In Peace Brother, and May the Redford family find peace.
