I'm at a loss for words. JJ will be dearly missed in the SMF family. He was in inspiration and friend to many of us here. If there is anything your family needs please don't be bashful in asking. The holidays are a tough enough time for many families, but to deal with an unexpected loss of a loved one. I just couldn't imagine...

Heartfelt sympathy for you and your family. JJ must have been a great father. Shared a few stories and i have a few of his recipes etched in my mind. Please find comfort in the legacy he has left here and with fellow like minded cooks and chefs.

God Bless JJ!

My sincere condolences to you and your family. Jimmy will be remembered as a great educator and guru of food safety..... being quick to hand out good advice, and he never tired of answering the same questions over and over.

I, too, am so sorry for your loss. Your father was a friend, a mentor, and an inspiration to us all.
If it means anything, I know that a part of him will live on with his wonderful recipes and techniques that we will all use and cherish.
