I had the privilege to train Jimmy in the mornings, he was a stand up guy. His face would light up when he would talk about his family. He loved his wife, daughters and grandkids so dearly! He stuck up for me when another person talked down to me. He gave me heartfelt advice like to never lower my standards or settle. My heart breaks with the news of his passing, my thoughts and prayers are with his wife, daughters and grandkids during this difficult time.

Always loved it when Jimmy would come in for his training sessions. Our morning crew he was a part of had thousands of laughs and good times for a decade. Jimmy always had great stories and good advice when asked.
