Born in Louisiana and raised in Texas, Jimmy has a unique legacy of craftsmanship that shows in all his creations. He was blessed to have many men take him under their wings when his own dad walked out when Jimmy was just 10. He realizes the importance of having a strong male role model in life and loves teaching students important life skills such as how to run a drill press, how to choose the best material for the job, and how to properly tuck in a shirt.
