Center news

Jim Andreasen

(Algona, Iowa) – Even in retirement at Good Samaritan
Society – Algona, former Iowa Supreme Court Justice Jim Andreasen continues his lifelong love for sports and exercise.


A graduate of the University of Iowa and the Iowa College of Law, he supports Hawkeye teams, as well as local high school athletes. He was one of the founders of the Algona High School Booster Club, serving several years as president, and continues to cheer for Bulldog athletics.


He might be best known these days for his commitment to his own health and well-being. At age 83, Jim moves quickly and continues to keep a regular jogging schedule. During his days on the state Supreme Court, he ran three different marathons and participated in other running events. In college, he lettered as a left-handed pitcher in Hawkeye baseball. Former teammates still call him Lefty.


Between college and law school, Jim served two years active duty in the U.S. Air Force. He then served 18 years in the reserve and retired as a lieutenant colonel with 20 years of military service.


Jim served as an attorney for Hutchison, Buchanan, Andreasen and McClure in Algona from 1958 until his appointment as district judge for Iowa’s Third Judicial District in 1975. In 1987, he was appointed to the Iowa Supreme Court. He retired in 1998.
