In 2008, Jimmy moved to Chippewa Falls.  He worked as a cement truck driver until he retired due to his health

While living in Chippewa Falls, he met his future wife, Carla Knott, who invited him to her church and introduced him to her church family at Chippewa Valley Bible Church.  He became involved in the church and enjoyed the Men’s Bible Study classes and the friendships he built there.
