Another day, same heartache. Jimmy I so vividly remember the day we met (August 28, 1980) I didn’t know at the time the wonderful future we would have. When you called me within three days of that date I was so thrilled and as time would have it, I stepped into your arms where I belonged and there I will be always. Darling you have left an awesome legacy in your personal life with family and friends and in your professional life with FEMA. Remember the Boss I love and miss you with all my heart. Till we meet again,

I have known Jimmy for many years. Even when we were not working together we would have a phone discussion often.
He is a fun guy to be around and he will missed. I know he is in a better place. It is the family and friends who suffers, may God bring peace to all that knew and enjoyed his company.

There's not enough space to share the great memories I have of growing up with Jimmy. Really sorry to hear of his passing. Great to hear of his strong Christian Faith!
We used to run the drainage sewers that emptied beneath the (now) tennis courts in Riverview. We had a lot of fun scaring each other such as blowing out our candles about a quarter mile in.
Coasting down Beck, brakes not allowed!
Trying to launch an old wooden boat in the river to go out to the island. Thankfully it sank first!
Climbing the cliffs below Hunter Art to see the "prison"!
The fun we shared!
Cisco was a great friend from childhood through high school.
RIP brother till we meet again!

I worked with Jimmy in Lake City, Florida in 2012 and then worked with him again in Memphis TN last year. We also crossed paths at other times. What a great guy to work with and to know. Jimmy was always happy and in a good mood with plenty of good stories to tell. He also kept plenty of candy around. It is a great loss to all that knew him. My wife and I have Jimmy's family in our prayers . I hope that we will cross paths again in Heaven.

I met Mr. Jimmy on my first disaster in Georgia. He always had a smile on his face and joke to tell. A true delight to be around. He has a great spirit. My prayers are with his family and friends during this time and I wish nothing but comfort for you all.

I meet Jimmy on my very first Disaster in Georgia while working in Data. When he can in the JFO he would drop of a box cookies/candy as a bribe to get his project entered faster. I have been his “other” sister since.

Jimmy was an awesome man and I know he will be missed in for a lifetime.

You don’t know me, I am Trudy underhill’s Sister. She has always talked fondly of you & Jimmy. She loved you both. I felt like I knew you both. I am so sorry for your loss. You & your family are in our prayers. God is taking good care of him now, God must have needed him to help with something. There is no good way to let go of someone, you just figure out how to put your foot forward & keep going. Blessings to you all.

Jimmy was my PAC on my first deployment in KY in 2010. Although we had not worked together since we keep up with each other with the hope that our paths would cross again. I hate that that didn't happen. He will be missed. God Bless, Mike Little, BVI/TVA/FEMA
