    Snooka, what can I say man. I can’t believe your gone. When I got the news from Josh, I just didn’t know how to react. Shock, anger, sadness, frustration. You were the nicest kid I have ever met in my entire life and it was a true honor to be your friend. You were always there for me. Always
    going to my shows. You were at the very first show I had ever done! I wish I knew that my show at millys would be the last time I ever saw you. I def woulda stuck around longer. I’m gonna miss u a lot man. But I know your looking down on all of us, having the time of your life. Going as fast as lightspeed on that bike. Thank you for being my friend. I love you man. Rest In Peace Jimmy J.

    Jimmy, I am just waiting to wake up from this really bad dream. I miss you more than words can describe. I love you. You were my best friend and someone I could always call. You were always there for me when I needed someone. You told me when I was wrong when many other would not. You were my wingman when I needed u. I cant believe your gone. I meet you all because a kid on a scooter! LOL Because of you I put more miles on my bike late at night then any other time and I also met some really awesome friends (sometimes we met them together) I am so happy I did. You will always be in my heart, I will never forget you.

    Mr & Mrs. Janeiro, I am so sorry for your loss. In the short time I got to know Jim you could tell he was a good person and a fighter. He was lucky to have such caring parents that stayed by him daily giving him so much love and support. It was an honor being able to take care of Jim and he is someone I will not forget.

  20. Melissa Foley says:


    It was such an honor to have been able to meet you. Words can not describe how such an amazing and special human being you were. In the short time that I was granted your presence, I found strength, courage, and perseverance that no ordinary human being would hold. Thank you for gracing me with your energy and kindness. Take care Jimmy. I will keep you in my memories, thoughts, and prayers.

    Mr and Mrs. Janeiro,

    I am so sorry for your loss. You raised such an extraordinary young man who touched so many lives, especially ours on the unit. It was such a pleasure to be able to take care of your son. He is missed tremendously. I am very fortunate to have been able to meet Jimmy. Thank you for your patience, understanding, and kindness as well. I will keep you in my prayers and thoughts. May you find peace and comfort in this sad time.

    Please take care,

  25. A friend says:


    As time pass by, I miss you more. You tought me many lessons in so little time. Instead of me comforting you, you would comfort me. You fought with all your heart and soul and you were so patient and understanding. Is no wonder every one who met you, loved you. When I go to bed at night and I look at your sweet smile, I feel warmth and overflowing love. I wish we had spent more time together. Your memory will live in my heart forever, sweet angel. And one day, when my time comes, we will meet again. R.I.P. our Jimmy.
