Steve Bodinet, KTVK reporter:
This ball of energy–he ran everywhere–never did anything less than 110 percent. He remodeled his home, built a garage, designed his truck to include every gadget in the world. He played guitar, kind of. He was going to take flying lessons so that he could sit behind the controls of NewsChopper 3 some day.
He had more plans, more ideas, more dreams than 50 people, and he would have gotten every single one of ’em done. Gosh, we just love that guy. We already miss him way too much. God bless ya, Jimmy.
