Please always reply-all or reply-to-list.

The python path is a list of places to look for modules. By adding 
'....../illustris_python' you're implying you want the module to be at 

See if using '/Users/Jim/Documents' finds the module. Then move it to a better 
(more targeted) directory and use that directory's name :-)
