I am always gonna remember and cherish that contagious smile and amazing laugh. You were an incredible person and so fun to be around. I love the times that we did get to share together like poking fun at Nolan or laughing at videos that I found. Just genuinely enjoying family time and each others company. You will be dearly missed. Fly high Kory! We love you💜

I have no one memory to share but each and every time we were together Kory always made a point to welcome my family. Wish we had more time uncle.

At a Thanksgiving, going to meet the family for the first time. Nervous, and not really knowing what to expect. Kory made a point to make me laugh and feel less uncomfortable, then ask “So what are your intentions with my son” in front of everyone. I have never felt so awkward yet so at home in my life! He lifted the energy in any room, and could have a conversation with anyone leaving a positive impression; a lot like his son. It’s something that I admire in the two of them.

Kory & Laurie created a home that is as inviting as their smiles. There are some that bring such light into the world that even after they’re gone, the light remains. Glad I got to walk in your life when I did.

Your love lives on through your granddaughters as we promise to always share about how much their grandpa loved them.

Love & Light

Kory, I remember the first time Brian and I saw you. You were in the infusion room and you were joking and laughing while you had your treatment. I never heard you complain or be negative .... not once! You and your beautiful soulmate Laurie brought light and laughter into that treatment room. We are so honored and humbled to have known you .... you were such a brave soldier. And I know your infectious smile and laugh are entertaining those in heaven now. We look forward to seeing you again someday. You fought the good fight .... you deserve to rest. Love you and Laurie!

Oh sweet Kory, your presence is deeply missed here at TXO! The first time I met you, I was blessed with your ridiculous sense of humor and your zest for life. There are few people over my career in healthcare who have held such a warm place in my heart and you, sir, are at the top of the list. It never mattered how bad you were feeling or what the news, you were always quick to offer a positive thought, a laugh and that endearing smile. You have no idea how meaningful your presence was to the staff at TXO and all of the fellow patients you encountered. You weren't just our patient, but our friend. You and Laurie became like family to us. I miss looking down the hallway to the infusion room and seeing your gleaming, infectious smile coming my way. I miss our banter and the laughs. I am so thankful I had the opportunity to care for you. You are the reason we LOVE what we do. We always hope to make the journey a bit easier for our patients, but we are never prepared for the immense impact our patients have on us. I know you are somewhere fun, cooking and entertaining and causing a cascade of never ending laughter!

I will miss your sense of humor, your great cooking, your pokes,your handyman skills ( you could fix anything) your laugh....I will just miss you Mr Jimmerson! You were the best brother-in-law I could ask for.It does not seem fair but as we know we are just visitors here on Earth and this is not our eternal home. I know you are pain free and cancer free and that makes me smile.
I promise you I will keep fighting to find a cure for that ugly beast pancreatic cancer.
The saying " God only takes the best" definitely applies to you Kory. I do take comfort in knowing that your last breath on Earth was your first breath in Heaven...
Soar high purple warrior. Love you.

I will forever miss my Brother-In-Law, Kory. He brought a sense of peace and humor to every event. He never hesitated to be “ Kory” when he was first introduced to our Minnesota family. He loved my sister unconditionally, as well as the rest of our family. His sense of humor made us laugh when our spirits may be down, and he was always there with a hug and a smile. He loved life and the great outdoors. I will miss him grilling my steak to ultimate perfection and the joy in his eye while doing so. I couldn’t ask for a better Brother-In-Law.... I love you Kory Jimmerson! You are a warrior! Until we meet again, brother!💜💜

On the day Kory was born he had this Look At Me! aura around him. And, he would tell you that he remembers that day, because he ALWAYS said he remembered events, most of which were before he was born. He had the loudest laugh, biggest smile, cutest face. He was so funny, had the best entertaining personality ever! He was loved by so many. As a child, he could get away with anything, all he had to do was smile. I will miss all of that, but most of all, I will miss his support, his great hugs, his ability to change the mood in a room to laughter, and yes, his great cooking. He was blessed with the same talent that my mother had, the joy of cooking and bringing others into your kitchen. I'm very proud of the person that he'd become, I'm very thankful that my children had Uncle Kory in their life long enough to make a difference, long enough to teach them about family and friendship, about strength, love, and living.

Kory was one of those people you think of as a brother and that holds true for me as I never had a blood brother, We had some great times together and he was the kind of person you just don't ever forget, love him and miss him dearly. May you rest in peace and someday we will meet again.
