Jimmy was born August 10, 1961, in Wellington, Texas to J.I. and LoRhae (McWhorter) Morgan. Growing up, Jimmy was active in Boy Scouts where he earned his Eagle Scout and FFA where he obtained his Lone Star FFA Degree. He graduated from Wellington High School in 1979 and Texas Tech University in 1983. After graduating he returned to Wellington to help his father run the family farm. During this time he met his wife of 37 years, Kimberly Hathaway.

He and Kimberly made their home in Quail, Texas and he began his teaching career at McLean and then Samnorwood. In 1997, Jimmy and Kimberly moved to Jayton where he taught Ag for 11 years. After their youngest daughter graduated in 2007, they decided to make the move to Wheeler where he taught Ag at Miami and then Kelton for 13 years. During his 31 years of teaching, Jimmy touched the lives of thousands of students and coached state and national winning teams. He loved his students and never stopped believing in the “future of agriculture”.

Jimmy attended Cornerstone Church and could be found helping lead music when asked. He was a faithful servant of the Lord and shared the word of God in foreign countries, various states, prisons, and with anyone and everyone he met. Jimmy was a farm boy at heart and enjoyed plowing his fields, checking his cows, and working outside. He shared this love with his grandchildren who could often be seen riding with him in his feed pickup or helping him plow. His love for life and neverending faith in God will be remembered by everyone who knew him and his passionate singing of “Oh What A Beautiful Morning” will forever be in our hearts.
