My sincerest sympathy goes out to all of you as the Russell family has a special place in my heart. I enjoyed working with Jimmy as a co worker at Caverna and most of all the memories that Heather and I shared as she served as my FCCLA officer at CHS, Region and State! Sue and Shelley I feel as I know you too as we have shared some disney moments and memories. I know the days and years ahead will not be easy but God will get you thru along with the wonderful memories you have of your dad and husband. Sorry i am not able to be there but hope to see you soon. May God bless each of you. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

To the Russell family,
I wish to express my sincere condolences in your great loss.  I knew Jimmy while he was a teacher and coach at Caverna. He was always warm and friendly and was a good role model for our students.  He leaves a great legacy in his family. May God bless each of you.

Sue, so sorry to hear about the passing of Jimmy. We grew up together and I will always remember the fun we had on baseball and basketball trips and playing baseball on Riser Ave. He will be missed
