In Loving Memory

James was an avid lover of St. Louis sports…the Cardinals, Blues, and Battlehawks. Above all, he loved coaching in the Eureka High School Basketball program. James got his dream his very own basketball team to coach. He led so many teams of young ladies to well over 400 career wins and one state championship. James was a pillar in the Eureka community. He loved being with friends at Poor Richard’s and getting his pizza from Joe Boccardi’s. Last, and most definitely not least, he loved his family fiercely and was their rock.

  1. All 3 of my daughters had Coach Alsup at Uthoff Valley. Coach Alsup was always friendly and it was clear to me he genuinely cared about all the students in his care. Rest In Peace, Coach!! 🏀🙏

  2. Mr. Alsup was my P.E. Teacher 2nd grade through 5th grade at Uthoff Valley and now my daughter’s P.E. Teacher her kindergarten and 1st grade years. I remember when he was my teacher, we were at the track running our laps. My side hurt and I told Mr. Alsup. He taught me to breathe through my nose and out through my mouth. I think of that every time I run because of him! He was a great and fun teacher and a good person! Our condolences to his family. Rest easy Mr. Alsup ❤️

  3. Coach Alsup was our daughter’s basketball coach at Eureka High School (2006-2010). The coaches & team became like family to us during those 4 years. Coach Alsup had such a love for basketball! He was a “tough as nails” coach and yet at the same time, he had such a protective and endearing heart for the girls. We are thankful for the role he played in developing our daughter’s basketball skills. But more importantly, we are thankful for the role he played in shaping the skills that now carry her through life: perseverance, stamina, assertiveness, commitment, teamwork, and lots and lots of hard work! May God bring the Alsup family comfort and peace as you grieve and celebrate his life.
    Wade & Renee Neumann
