I have so many fond memories with Zimmie! One of my very favorites that still makes me giggle was over 30 years ago and involved classmates, a blender, a second floor window and Mr. and Mrs. Zimmerman coming home early. Feeling blessed to have called him my friend and having spent a fun evening this past summer at our reunion. Much love to the entire Zimmerman family.

Jimmy use to walk up the hill to pick me up for school and bum a cigarette from someone
And walk me to school[I walked him to school because he couldn't watch were he was going because he was Talking soo much the whole way there].
Those were the good times, best days & lots of laughs.
We've lost another good soul.
God bless to him and his.

Jim was a good friend and coworker back in the TCI/CharterMedia days. He was thoughtful, funny and a caring person. He made the world a better place.

Prayers to Jim’s family. 🙏
