Eye Welcomes Dr. Jim O’Leary to our team

Dr. Jim O’Leary is a recently retired Obstetrician/Gynecologist.  Jim grew up in Chicago and holds both Irish and American citizenship as his father was born in Ireland.  With a family of eight children the value of hard work and education were stressed in his home and he was able to pay his own way through a private university.  He attended Loyola University of Chicago School of Medicine on a Navy scholarship and served four years as a General Medical Officer before completing his residency in obstetrics and gynecology at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN.  He was a partner at a private practice for 25 years in Wisconsin and relocated to Florida in 2019 to be closer to his grandchildren.  He practiced for an additional 3 years in Florida and decided to retire to spend more time with his two grandchildren.

Jim’s passions include conservative politics, personal finance, and family.  While in Wisconsin, Jim collaborated to form Physicians for Responsible Government (PRG), a group to recruit congressional candidates to overturn Obamacare and flip the 8th Congressional district in Wisconsin.

This group held a candidate forum in which all republican candidates publicly answered policy questions.  Dr. O’Leary wrote the policy questions and was one of three moderators.  At the conclusion of the event, the group selected their preferred candidate and all 120 members gave the maximum donation.

Through the hard work and collaboration of the group with the candidate’s team, Reid Ribble successfully won the election against a well known incumbent and continued to serve in Congress until 2017. Dr. O’Leary and the PRG were also instrumental in electing Ron Johnson to the Senate in 2010, a contentious race against Senator Russ Feingold, a longstanding incumbent.

Jim was also active in the Club for Growth on the national level and attended two national meetings. 

Jim has been married to Susan, a former English teacher, for 37 years and together they have three adult children and two adorable granddaughters. 

Eye on Jacksonville is honored to have Dr. Jim join us.  He will be writing stories the mainstream media refuses to write – specifically in the area of public health.
