I learned about jimmy's hospitalization about a week before I heard of his death. We have had little contact since the sale of Cotten FH, yet I hold fond memories of Jimmy when we both served on the NCFDA board of directors together. It was a time when we communicated frequently about work trials and pleasures. He was a joy to travel with and interact with professionally. I express my sympathy to Crystal and all of his family. May God bless you during this most difficult time.
Our deepest sympathies to the Odom family during this unexpected time, from your business partners at Bratcher Funeral Home. God Bless.

Shocked and saddened by this news. My prayers go out for Jimmy's family in hope that God's healing hand will give them some comfort thru these difficult days. For me, Jimmy was a business associate that everyone just "clicked" with. Someone that had the unique ability to not only handle the job, but that it was so easy to respect and bond with on other levels. From the very first time we spoke, I felt I had made a friend, drawn to him by his charm, passion for the industry, and wonderful personality. Jimmy will truly be missed my all that knew him.
We are so very sorry to hear of Jimmy's passing. You are in our hearts and prayers.
