James was my nehpew . I know every word I say will be repeated by everyone on how they feel too for he was the same to everyone. He was kind, loving, fun and caring in all ways.I loved his smile and he gave the biggest best hugs ever.My last memories of him was on July 14th, 2021I came to Mt Home and was meeting my friends for lunch. I was a little early so I walk in the resturant and the first person I see is James. He had ordered food and was waiting on it.. He gave me a big hug and sat with me while I f waited on my friends. I told him I was going to call his Mom and take her to lunch and he said no. that he wantedd me to come to Dennis's birthday cookout that night. Which I did and am so glad that I ran into him for it was a wonderfful fun family night and I am forever grateful.I
I first met Jim in April of 2018. I walked in for an interview at Sonic and there he was sitting on a box ready to ask me some questions, not your typical interview for a job but he made sure I was comfortable and told me I got the job that day!! I worked there for a couple months and he was the best manager ever. He often told me that I overthought things and he made sure I didn’t skip a break. I always looked forward walking into that store and seeing him!!! Jim, you had a heart of gold and will be truly missed!! We all love you!!
I worked the Baxter county fair with Jim, just a few days after I was hired with BXSO. We rode together at times on the golf cart. I had just met him but it felt like I knew him for a long time. He was definitely a family man, born to be a cop , and loved his best friend Lt. Lee Sanders. I also enjoyed being invited to his house to watch my Buckeyes play Clemson. He was definitely a person I will never forget even though it was a short time. Now I pray his family finds strength in this time of grieving, GOD BLESS YOU JIM!, AND THE FAMILY!
Jim was a mentor to many of us throughout the police academy. Often times you would hear Jim’s infectious laugh down the hallway think this guy is going to get us smoked. LolJim was a natural leader and never left anything unsaid or undone. Jim was taken from us way to early I suppose God needed him more than we did. I’ll never understand why God takes the good ones. Jim would always, I mean always have something funny to say no matter if it was a serious or humorous situation. To the Morgan family I’m truly sorry for your loss and will be praying for you daily.
I met Jim at work. He always had a smile and something fun to say. I know he will be missed by many. Many many prayers for the family.
Jim will be missed and my heart goes out to the family. All will be in my prayers and thoughts.
It just doesn’t seem possible that Jim has left this earth. We only knew him a little while but he could he left such a beautiful place in our hearts and we feel so blessed. I’m sure those whose life he touched will always be better for having known him! Jolene you and the family will be in our prayers as your life continues without him.
Jim was my nephew by marriage. I always thought he was such a great person, father, husband. He will truly be missed. I've been gone for 3 years or so and I wish I would have spent more time with him. Jolene love you and your always in my thoughts.
Jim, you were an amazing person. I can't believe you're no longer on this Earth. Too bad I can't get one more hug! It does give me some peace knowing that my memaw in heaven has someone to cheer on those hogs with her now! Woooooo pig sooie. Do me a favor and hug my sweet daughter Carley Anne for me. Jim, you will be dearly missed. I'm sure that everyone who have ever met was left with a good impression of you. I bet you left a special mark in everyone's lives.
Uncle Jim was one of a kind. Smart, funny, and outgoing. He always encouraged me to be better and do better. I miss him dearly and am deeply saddened at the fact that I didnt see him as mich as I had hoped to. My condolences go out to the family.
Sorry to hear of Jim's passing, worked with him several years. He was a great person and never met a stranger. He would help you with anything that you ask help with. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him. Praying for your family in the days ahead.
Jim was such a good man and Officer he will truly be missed! Prayers for all his family during this difficult time
You will forever be missed you goofy ole brat thank you for not only being my dads best friend( Brad Thomas ) but for being my additional uncle . I’m still not sorry for killing that buck you wanted may you Rest In Peace as we will all see you again one day
I love you, uncle Jim. ♡ thanks for loving me and always having a smile and a joke to give
Jim was the kind of guy you meet once in your life. He was a straight shooter and wasn’t afraid to say it like it is. If you had to wade off into some bad crap you wanted Jim with you, not sure he was afraid of anything, in my mind I think of Isaiah 6:8. King James Version ... Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me. That was Jim. I consider myself lucky to have been his friend, we will miss him.
I first met Jim on the school bus. Our lives crossed paths many times over the years and I was always greeted with a smile and we would catch up. I respected this man for so many reasons. He will never be forgotten. Much prayer goes out to the family.
I am so sorry to hear of Jim's passing. He will be missed. I pray that God will give you strength in this time of need.
