Jimmo was a great guy I had the opportunity to train with him a few times. Nothing but good things to say about him. May he rest in peace.

The world lost an incredible man this weekend. With a very heavy heart I regret to inform all of you that Ryan "The Big Deal" Jimmo passed away. He was a very dear friend to me. We worked together on many projects and shared many laughs. I will greatly miss this man and all of his quirkiness. He was a brave warrior, articulate gentleman and passionate humanitarian. #ripbigdeal #ripjimmo
