Born in Nashville, Tennessee, Jim traveled worldwide as an "Army brat" until graduating from high school in Japan. While attending Mississippi College in Clinton, Mississippi, where he received his Bachelors of Arts and Masters of Arts degrees, he decided to make Mississippi his home. From 1969 through 1971, Jim served in the U.S. Army in Vietnam as a First Lieutenant with the 101st Airborne Division. After his military service, he earned his Juris Doctor degree in 1977 from the University of Mississippi.
