He was the only child of the late James R. Scott, Jr., and Ima Diamond Scott. He was born in Barnwell, SC on 11 Oct 1945. Jimmy was born with CP and despite all his difficulties he lived life to the fullest. He was adored by all the Staff and care givers at Whitten Center. He always had a big smile for everyone. Even though he could not speak he developed his own sign language and could communicate what he wanted. He had a job at the Village, he loved the therapeutic horseback riding and trips the Center took him on. He was predeceased by his parents, his grandparents Medicus and Bessie Diamond and Mr. and Mrs. James R. Scott, Jr., his aunts Frances D. Woodward, Esther Diamond, Jennie D. Curlee, Zelma D.

The family would like to express their thanks to the staff and caregivers at Whitten Center for 66 years of wonderful, compassionate, and superb care they provided Jimmy over the last 66 yrs.
