Jimmy was a registered nurse at Christiana Care and made endless friendships throughout his career.
He enjoyed football Sundays and watching the Philadelphia Eagles at his Dads. Jimmy was an avid Philadelphia sports fan, attending many Phillies, Eagles, Sixers, Flyers, and Villanova games.
One of Jimmy’s passions was music. “Music keeps me sane”, as he would say. He attended countless concerts to see his favorite musicians.
He enjoyed so many things in life, including spending time at the beach, fishing, music, Harry Potter, all things Philadelphia, buying new shoes and looking “fresh”, making memories with his family and friends, and most of all being a father to his two beautiful children.
Jimmy had a special place in his heart for his friends and family.
Above all, Jimmy loved his kids. He was a loving father to Paisley and Mason and loved spending time and creating lasting memories with them.
