Jimmie was born on April 30, 1959 and passed away on Sunday, October 6, 2019.

Jimmie was a resident of North Carolina at the time of passing.

He earned his BA from Appalachian State University, his BS from Winston-Salem State University, and his MBA from Wake Forest University. Jimmie leaves behind the love of his life and treasured Wife of twenty-five years: Heather Blalock; his Mother and Step-father: Wanda Faye and Wayne Linville; three daughters: Bree (Patrick) Ward, Emily (Matt) Blalock, Allyson (Alex) Blalock, and niece: Kaydee (Thomas) Lyons-O'Neal, whom he thought of as a fourth daughter; five grandchildren: Madison, Mason, Cooper, Jackson, and Lucy; sister Jennifer (Joel) Reavis; and a host of other nieces, cousins, and friends with whom he was also close. A life-long Wake Forest fan, he greatly enjoyed attending Wake Forest basketball and football games but acknowledged the pre-game tailgating with family and friends was the real and sometimes only win.

In an effort to remedy this appalling truth, and in lieu of flowers, memorial contributions in Jimmie's memory may be made to the ALS Association, North Carolina Chapter.
