Jim Sheeler Jim Sheeler

Jim Sheeler won the 2005 Pulitzer Prize for Feature Writing for a 24-page newspaper story that followed the footsteps of a Marine saddled with the task that every service member dreads: the knock on the door notifying a military family of a loved one’s death. He expanded the story into a book, "Final Salute," which was a finalist for the 2008 National Book Award. He previously authored "Obit," a collection of narrative obituaries written about everyday people. He holds the Shirley Wormser Professorship of Journalism and Media Writing at Case Western Reserve University.
