James “Jimmy” Dean Stains

James “Jimmy” Dean Stains joined his mom with the Lord on Tuesday, August 3, 2021, in Universal City, Texas, at the age of 46. He was born at Hahn Air Force Base, Germany, on June 3, 1975, to Rick and the late Lillian Maude Stains. He graduated from Odessa High School in 1993 where he was the Battalion Commander of the ROTC, then went on to attend McMurry University in Abilene. Jimmy worked for Western National Bank as an assistant vice president of data processing for 10 years, American Lenders as a vice president of marketing for 8 years, Green Tree Servicing as a collector for 2 years, and spent the last 6 years managing and operating an Avis Car Rental Dealership which he co-owned with his dad. Jimmy never met a stranger and loved to play poker, tell jokes, share memes, and root for his beloved Cleveland Browns. He had a smile and laugh that lit up the room. Jimmy spent most of his free time calling his friends and family and spoiling the loves of his life: Jayce, John and Lily.
