He graduated from David Lipscomb High School. While in Nashville, he went to work for Big K.

Jim enjoyed going to the Nine Mile Bluegrass Festival with his special friends, the Hartley’s. He loved taking pictures and he also loved all animals, especially dogs, cats, birds and fish.

Jim was a member of Homestead Baptist Church. His pastor made a very profound statement concerning Jim, that needs to be shared with others, “He makes you wonder who is really slow and who isn’t. The world could learn a lot from James and so can the church”.

He is survived by his sisters- Christine Josey of Cincinnati, OH, Virginia Jacobson (Rolf) of St. Cloud, MN and Barbara Hackett (David) of Nolensville, TN, niece and nephews- Katie Jacobson (Chris Danford) of McMinnville, OR, Brian Jacobson (Lindsey) of St. Paul, MN, Edwin Josey (Grace) of Goodlettsville, TN and Marshall Amis (Madalyn) of Chapel Hill, TN and aunts- Sarah Buchanan and Beulah Moorman of Danville, VA.
