Jimmy Bissett was a wonderful man, whose business savy, and success has always inspired me. Despite Jim's high ranking in the business world, he seemed to be such a down to earth pleasant man. He will be missed by many.

I never had a chance to meet Jimmy on a personal level. I can say that I owe a great thanks to him for showing me the way to really run a company the right way. I will continue to hold all of my business at the nursery because of the greatest team of people I ever worked with. Jimmy , I will meet you in the biggest landscape Garden above that I'm sure you are in charge of. Thank you God Bless

cant understand what drives a man to shoot himself, in any event but my sympathy to his family in this holiday season. i sure there must be some things coming to a head soon bankruptcies, and repossesions he must have known and was scared of whats coming.

suicide is just wrong, it destroys much more than yourself. it the easy and selfish and cowardly way out of problems. my prayer goes to his family and children, for strength during this time.

When there is an internal struggle, no one ever knows the extent of the torture felt. Jimmy was an amazing man, such a kind soul, and an inspiration and he will be forever missed. You have no right to pass judgment on anyone whose story you don't know first hand. To walk a mile in one man's shoes....

Dear jimmy

I would like to wish you a bon voyage on the next part of your eternal journey

The bottle of rain that we left you from your wedding night was full to the top as your life was full of love and compassion for everyone you touched in this world

We all enter this world alone and when it is time to leave we also leave it alone

You are now with all your friends on the other side where the light begins and ends

Peace to u dear Jimmy we love u and u will truly be missed

Aloha

All of you people from westchester that never knew the man should pay respects to a visionary person and clam up. My condolences to my many friends at Bissets and I know how much they loved their boss, owner and friend.
Jimmmy Bissetts reputaion is far from Money and Greed and only a moron would post that.
