Our sincere sympathies to family members and friends. Jim was a good friend since childhood and through high school. His nickname was "Willie".

I am so very sorry for your loss. Jimmy and I were very close at one time and remained in contact via phone and text. I last spoke to him last December. and Via text on May 4th. He told me his story and I am very sadden to hear of his passing. He was such a good man and friend. He will be missed. My deepest sympathy to his family. RIP Jimmy Z
