Not sure what to say?

Jim was one of the best people I ever met. He was always friendly and welcoming Even though I only saw him occasionally he always greeted me with a big hug and made me feel like he really was happy to see me. He was a rare and special individual.

Norma and family Danny and I are so sorry for your loss. We just heard and offer our deepest condolences.

Professor Pierson married us in the old chapel at Johnson University in June of 1965 and Norma so graciously prepared our reception. We have many wonderful memories and give thanks to God our Father for his faithful servant. Sending our love and prayers to his loved ones.

What a wonderful man and an encouraging professor. We loved to hear him speak. Our love and prayers are with the family. God bless. ~Paul and Kathy Eisaman

Condolences to the Pierson family. Comfort to the family. (Willie, Sevier County Adult Special Olympian)

A wonderful servant and so kind to us during our year spent in Knoxville at Woodlawn in 1984-85. He always had a greeting and kind words for us as young married folks with little ones. Tim was at an internship in mental health and we were living at an emergency shelter for children
His graciousness has always been an example for as as we moved through out the country

Hilda and I were saddened to hear of the death of a beloved professor, Jim Pierson. I was privileged to be in his class at Johnson Bible College designed to minister to people with disabilities. We spent Saturdays off campus working with residents at the Greene Valley Treatment Center, a State Children's Hospital in Greeneville, TN. Due to his influence, I spent 30 years working in the mental health field.

My heartfelt sympathies go out to the family and friends during this difficult time. I hope that the promise in 1 Thessalonians 4:14 can bring comfort. Knowing that there is a hope for the ones we have lost in death can be so reassuring.

Nancy, I'm so sorry to hear of Jim's passing. Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. Love, Lucy Clark
