Jimmy was truly my brother. One of the most loving and kind person that you could ever know. Always had a smile for you no matter what was going on. My fondest memory of Jimmy was, him and his towel. Man!! He kept that thing on his side and stayed cool always. He was a smooth dresser and for Jimmy it always had to be in the right place. We called him Black Cherry because he was so sweet. I'm Greatful that I got to talk and pray with him before his wonderful journey home to be with the father. I will never forget the great times we shared with each other and Jimmy, you will be missed but never forgotten.

Your Brother, Jeff aka Doc Timberlake

Some of my most cherished memories and best summers were with you and your family. I’d come down for the summer from Atlanta as a kid to Jack house (really Cindy and Cheen house ) lol and have a ball with the whole gang. I remember you getting on us kids about running in and out the house, acting up, being loud but you always made sure we ate. You may not know it, but you became my hero when you got KFC delivered, I loved KFC! Most importantly though you treated me like family and I’ll never forget that. You will truly be missed by all.

I remember you use too throw the best family parties in Brooklyn. All the kids would play in the hallway in front of the door, while y’all adults were in the house dancing, laughing and living. I miss those days. One thing that I always wanted to do as a kid was snatch that rag out your back pocket lol. Love you and wish you safe journey to the Stars.

Love,
Ricky tha Rocket.

Jimmy was my next door neighbor. Our families were so close. Every time I would come to-their house with no shoes Jimmy would be like “look girl go put some shoes on your feet“Jimmy wouldn’t give you no soda if you didn’t have ice in your cup. I’m sitting here laughing cause we had some good time. One time I had a bad asthma attack and the ambulance was taking a long time Jimmy was looking out the hallway window. He was scared and so was I. He kept looking , but He wouldn’t lie to me he also never left. He wouldn’t leave until they came. Jimmy loved his children dearly. I have so many fond memories of Jimmy he will truly be missed. My condolences and prayers go out to the family. I love y’all
