Jim was born January 8, 1965, in Sharon, Pennsylvania, a son to Charles M. and Patricia M. (Yoho) Cluse.
He graduated from Brookfield High School in 1982 and furthered his education at the New Castle School of Trades where he studied welding.

He fell in love with the former Peggy J. Kozarich, and they exchanged vows on Christmas Eve in 1988.
