It was with great sadness that I learned of Jim's passing. He was my supervisor at the Eau Gallie Station. I retired in September 2017. He was a good boss, a friend and this Seminole had great respect for the Gator and Cowboy fan. I last saw Jim at the Palm Bay Station and had a pleasant talk. May he rest in peace. Prayers for the Sheppard family. God Bless you all, Drew Mullen.

One funny Quote you told me is if there was an App for the management BS I could stay at home That was a real kick
Your at home now with your loved one who left this earth before you
God bless you Jimmy

Jimmy was the brother I never had, we shared so many good times and so many memories over many, many years that I will cherish forever! My heart is so heavy with sadness, and my prayers and condolences go out to the entire Sheppard Family. As my tears fall as I write this, I am comforted knowing that Jimmy is with his Pops in Heaven.
Til the day we meet again....In my heart is where I'll keep you friend. RIP Buddy

We had so many great memories with Shep. From the football pool. Hanging out at Applebee’s. Watching Gator games. Playing poker. Sitting on the back porch. So many you can’t name them all. One of my favorites is the Troupe ham slice toss. A few of you will know that one. My heart goes out to your family. May you Rest In Peace bud. We love you. Diana and Fish.
