He is not a great kid..I tried to order something from his "website" for my young daughter that I obviously never got. I complained to him via email one time. After that he stalked me, found out what I did for work, where I worked, the personal background of myself and my two daughters. He then threatened the safety of my girls and stated that "wouldn't it be terrible if you left work at (---) to try and go home to your girls then suddenly got hit by a car..the city can be ruthless"..I never mentioned in my order or complaint the state,city or business that I worked for..he is a terrifying bully who will rip off his own mother,sister,daughter or wife if given the chance

Arianna - if that is your real name. What kind of yarn are you spinning? Jimmy is a 22 year old honor student at Mizzou in biomedical engineering, he studies about 60 hours per week. I handle all of the orders for him. Your allegations are completely baseless and in fact are slanderous. I checked all of the orders and your name shows up no where. I understand that you might be envious of Jimmy's success - but aren't you taking things a bit too far in your attempt to discredit him? I do hope the moderator of this blog deletes your post.
