    I Met Jimmy through my husband Ray Hooten. They rode back and forth to work every day since they started at the Convention center. i saw Jimmy as a loving kind person with a heart of gold. And what a glow in his eyes when he spoke about his mother Wilma.

    Unfortunately, my husband drove the truck behind Jimmy that tragic early morning. Both my husband and I would like to express our most sincere condolences to Jimmy’s family at this time of mourning. Although we did not know Jimmy, he has deeply effected both our lives.

    If you are incline to contact me, feel free to email at xxmarsx4@yahoo.com.

    Again, we are both thinking of his family and wishing you all peace.
