I have so many good memories from high school of being in Choral Club with Jimmy. He had a beautiful voice and always wore a smile. Godspeed, old friend.

Jimmy and I grew up together and were always friends from elementary school through Junior High, and high school. He was a wonderful friend and boy.. Jimmy and I worked together to have a 35 yr Reunion for Reagan High School. When we got together, it was like we were still in school, same friendship that never left after all that time of separation. I am so honored to have had him as a friend. I will miss him so much. My love and condolences to his family.

I was very saddened to hear about the loss of Jimmy. We were good friends at Hamilton junior high and Reagan high school. I’m sending up prayers for the repose of his soul and the comfort of his family.

I am so sad to hear of Jim's passing. He was such a super, nice guy.
I worked with him at UTSW a few years ago in HR and at the time, we were both diet-coke-aholics; ok I was, but Jim liked Diet Coke too, and on his way in to work every morning , he would stop by a convenience store and pick up a 32oz for him and for me! Since then, every time I see him on campus we would stop to say hello and check on the day. He was always smiling and so very nice. I will miss his smiling face around here very much!
Rest in peace, Jim.
My prayers go out to his family. With deepest sympathy, Jennifer
