To the entire McMahan family,
I am deeply saddened by your loss and all that you are going through at this extremely difficult time. As the former principal of Henderson Mill Elementary School, I had the pleasure of working with Jim since January of 2014. Over the course of those 4 1/2 years, I consistently saw the man that he truly was, a champion for the students of DeKalb County School District, an ardent supporter of our Lakeside Cluster, a leader in the community, and a dedicated family man. Jim continuously exhibited a contagious positivity. He raised others up through compliments that encouraged them to be even more than they already are, and he was always willing to drop everything to attend to the needs of others.

His way of being will continue to guide my future actions and interactions. His leadership by example was truly second to none. I wish you comfort in the memory of the man that Jim was and the lasting legacy that he created that will continue to bare fruit into the future.

Jim was an outstanding public servant. In my conversations with him he was always very positive and supportive. Our community and schools need more committed residents like Jim. We will miss him. Our family sends condolences and prayers to the McMahan family during these difficult times.

Sebrina & Phillip Boyce and the Boyce and Lo'Boyce kids are broken hearted and are sorry for your loss. There aren't words that can explain how we treasured Jim. He was truly and asset to Dekalb County, its students and the community. Jim has so much compassion and grace with his educational purpose. Jim stood out to us and was always available to aid our family. Jim is well respected and has been a shoulder to lean on. Thank you Jim Thank you Jim Thank you Jim. We will miss you.
