“Forever Loved, Never Forgotten”

The Navy Gold Star Program is eternally grateful for the sacrifice of those Service Members who have died in service to our country. To help us to never forget, we have set up this tribute page to honor and remember the memory of those lives. If you would like to honor the memory of your Sailor, Soldier, Marine, Airman or Coast Guardsman through the Navy Gold Star website please submit your thoughts and a photo.

James ……”Jimmy” to us, was the third of our four children and our youngest son. He was the most laid back, easy going baby we had ever seen, never complaining always happy; in short a “joy”. As he grew up he became exceptionally talented in almost every sport but especially baseball. That talent would eventually lead to a college scholarship. His life long dream was to play baseball professionally But Jimmy had a serious and creative side writing poetry and even getting into rap. He would fill notebooks full of his poetry and drawings. And he had a heart of gold and a deep sense of fairness always taking the side of the disadvantaged. And from what we heard from his friends, he was quite the leader. He brought us so much joy in his short time with us and not a day goes by that we don’t shed a tear and at the same time remember a moment with our Jimmy. We miss and love him. He was a good person and we wish we had had more time to get to know him. But, one day we will all be together again.
