Jim Sheehan is a genuinely quiet guy who avoids the limelight

Jim Sheehan has already created a major upgrade to the east side of downtown Spokane. He helped launch the Main Market Co-op, runs the Community Building and its neighbor, the Saranac Public House.

We featured Sheehan's latest project, the Saranac Commons, on today's SR front page.

More than one reader emailed asking why Sheehan's face wasn't featured in the story. The answer is: he's a modest guy. He doesn't like to be the center of attention. We have had photos of Sheehan in previous articles. This time, I didn't even bother him to consider being in a photo.

Here's a 2001 photo from the SR files.
