Fantastic Marc! Great stuff here.

I wish I had talked to her more. Great actress, dancer and a real lady. In the scenes on the “L,” I actually forgot we were shooting a video.

Thanks my friend,
Jimi Jamison

Jimi was also a grandfather. And part of an Emmy-nominated 2004 Starbucks commercial.

RIP Jimi. Though our interaction was brief, I could tell that you were a class act.
