James C. Dauksch, III

James C. Dauksch, III (Jim) passed away on April 14, 2014.  Jim was born on January 23, 1969 in Orlando, Florida.  Bearing his father's name, Jim was the third child and only son of Jay and Sylvia Dauksch.

Jim was raised and educated in Central Florida.  He was a graduate of Seabreeze High School, University of Central Florida, and Stetson Law School.  Jim began his legal profession as a prosecutor in the Office of the State Attorney in Volusia County. Discovering his heart was in finding the good in others, defending their rights, and giving them hope for their future, he opened a criminal defense law practice representing his clients with a great balance of professionalism and sympathy until his passing.
Jim grew up loving the water and spent his teenage years lifeguarding and surfing in Daytona Beach.  He enjoyed a very active life, running marathons, cycling, surfing, and traveling, but he found his greatest joy in his children. Jim lived his life knowing God was in control and had a plan/purpose for him. That purpose was to be a protector, provider, counselor and friend to his children.  Jace, Annie,  and Zoe were the light of his life and his true passion. For them, the depth of his love could not be measured.
Jim is survived by his parents, James C. Dauksch, Jr. and Sylvia Dauksch (Paul Klump); sisters, Deniece Webb (Win) and Christina Hall (Scott); his three children, James Carlton Dauksch IV, Annie True, and Zoe Kae; and many nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, and cousins.
We will continue to seek comfort in Jim's favorite verse: " For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jeremiah 29:11.  Jim fulfilled his purpose on earth and is now following a more glorious path with our Father in heaven.
Jim was a loving father, caring son, wonderful brother, and a great friend.  He will always be remembered and forever missed.
A memorial service to celebrate Jim's life will be held on Saturday, April 26, 2014, 10:00 am at First Baptist Church of Orlando, Henry Chapel, 3000 South John Young Parkway, Orlando, Florida 32805.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Grace Orlando, 2828 Edgewater Drive, Suite 200, Orlando, Florida 32804 or to the charity of your choice in memory of Jim.

I am so sorry to read of the passing of your loved one. As you prepare to lay them to rest; to sleep in death for just a little while (John 11:11) I hope your family will find solace in the resurrection promise of Jesus; to awaken those who are now sleeping in death (John 5:28,29) restoring them back to life; this time with the hope to live eternally on the renewed Paradise earth, so that God’s will, will be done on the earth, as it is in Heaven..-Matthew 6:9,10; Luke 23:43. Until that wonderful blessed promise is fulfilled, and you are reunited with your loved one again; may Jehovah God soothe your grieving hearts now and grant you peace and comfort, during this most grievous time.-Matthew 5:4.

No words can express our grief. Jim was the kindest, sweetest, person; as a boy and a man. I will never forget this terrible loss.

Jim was my legal counselor, oyster eating compadre and most important, my friend. I am at a loss for his passing but enriched in the knowledge that there is a new shining star in the heavens above as he looks down upon us with his dazzling smile.

Cant express the disbelief and sorrow I felt when I saw Jims pic and name in obits. I worked with him when he was a ocean lifeguard and I'm happy to have had the pleasure of knowing him in this life.. He was a great man then and I am sure he was all his life.He is gone way way too soon. My condolences to the children.

He was a great caring attorney
I met him and started working cases together for the last 4 years. When I was ill he would offer words of wisdom to assure me I had a God that care and loved me. He was an inspiration. Found out today when I tried to call to check on a case. I was worried ibhad not heard from him in a month. Incredible. I am blessed because I had the opportunity to meet an angel in earth.
