39. James E. Ukrop 

Honestly, we miss Jim Ukrop. The former grocery store magnate faded into the background after Ukrop’s Super Markets became Martin’s Food Markets, and his grocery store bank merged into Union First Market. His pet project, Richmond CenterStage, is struggling with its programming as well as its finances. Ukrop and his brother, Bobby, are consulting with the city on plans to lure a grocery store to the East End, though, and that’s something. He’s also a well respected community member. And he’s been seen giving little old ladies tours in Shockoe Slip.
