James M. Tome, Most Excellent Grand High Priest

Companion Tome hails from Sycamore, Illinois, where he has resided for the last 12 years in a 130 year old home with his wife, Debbie, two dogs and two cats. He was born in Syracuse, New York and spent most of his early childhood in various cities as his father was transferred with his job. Since 1976, he’s lived in Illinois, growing up in the city of Geneva.

He has a degree in Finance from Northern Illinois University and has worked for various advertising agencies and trade publication companies. Currently, Companion Tome owns his own marketing agency and also owns and operates an RV waste tank cleaning service. Jim and his wife travel the U.S. extensively in their Airstream travel trailer, mostly visiting Texas, Florida, Vermont and the surrounding midwest states.

Jim is the Past High Priest of DeKalb Chapter No. 144 and Fox River Chapter No. 14, and a member of Keystone Chapter No. 281. He was also Worshipful Master of DeKalb Lodge No. 144, Past Thrice Illustrious Master of DeKalb Council No. 80, and Past Eminent Commander of Sycamore Commandery No. 15. He holds the honor of Knight York Grand Cross of Honor and is a Past Governor of Blackhawk York Rite College No. 88.

Jim has been a Companion in the Royal Arch Masons for 10 years and served as Deputy Grand High Priest, Grand King, Grand Captain of the Host, Grand Principal Sojourner, Grand Royal Arch Captain, Grand Master of the Second Veil, and Grand Steward.
