Marie, Kathy, and family, I was stunned to hear of Jimmy's passing. I am reminded of the many times we rode our go-carts around the neighborhood. Know that God and time heals our pain and sorrow. I hope you can find comfort in knowing that Jimmy is in a much better place and we will all join him again someday.

I am so sorry for your loss.
I had never met Jimmy but his Mom always spoke very highly of him and was very proud of his accomplishments.
May God watch over you now.

Having Jimmy as my friend and teacher since he was walking around, he has taught me more about what it truly means to "Stand" than anyone else in my experience. For myself and for my family, I am forever grateful for the Man that God and his Mom has shared with us.
I look forward to playing with Jimbolini forever.

Jimmy was a joy to work with at the Planning Dept. He even cheerfully embraced the elevator that was a bit off. He will be missed by many.

Your positive outlook was an inspiration to many who had the pleasure meeting you. I enjoyed are philosophical discussions on politics, stocks, the economy and life in general. I am a better person for having known you. Jimmy my friend, you will be missed. I look forward to someday have a Seagrams 7&7 again with you. Till then my friend

Many years ago I hired Jimmy to work for my firm as a blue printer and filing person. His mom drove him to the interview as he was too young to drive by himself. I noticed a slight limp when he walked and asked him if he was OK since the job would require a lot of time on his feet. His reply was "Oh, I just have a little leg problem - it's no big deal!" That was classic Jimmy.

It was several years before he told us he had MD. He never complained about his health and always did his job with a smile.

He was just one of the guys as far as he and we were concerned and was up to try anything including being pulled behind my ski boat on a tube and being thrown down a slip & slide. He lived life to the fullest regardless of what MD threw at him.

When he started to use a wheel chair he became a CAD tech for us and worked for us until he went to Ringling.

A finer young man you will not find! He touched a lot of people and will be dearly missed!

Jimmy, I am shaken that you are gone. Ive been personally enriched by working with you and knowing you. When I needed help, you were always there for me. And I think you understood my humor before I did. Youve left us too soon. Loved you.

I've known Jimmy since we were kids in the same neighborhood. He was one of the family and we loved him. I will always remember his great sense of humor and his deep humanity. I hope to see you again dear friend. My condolences to his family and loved ones.

To The Family:
Although I never had the opportunity to meet Jimmy, I know Kathy, Jeremiah, and Jacob thru our Tuscawilla Pony Club. I consider the Winburns to be a great family and reading about Jimmy, I too know he was a great man. Having recently experienced my Father's death, I empathize with the loss you are feeling. There are no words that are correct or right at this time, so please know that I extend my deepest sympathies.

May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
