Jimmy Dell Trussell, Jr. was born on October 15, 1976 in Meridian, Mississippi, to Jimmy D. Trussell, Sr. and Loubirda Naylor Trussell. He was the third oldest of his maternal siblings to six children, Donald Trussell, Jacqueline Hopson, Tina Trussell, Clint Trussell, and Alex Trussell.

Jimmy was raised in Lauderdale, Mississippi, but later as a teenager, he moved to Sandusky, Ohio, where he attended Sandusky High School. As a child, Jimmy attended Mt. Olive Baptist Church, but later joined Promise Land Community Church, and willingly served in any capacity where he was needed.

Jimmy met the love of his life, Daesha, in 2003. Inseparable, they became friends, lovers, and confidants for life. In 2008, he moved to Louisville, Kentucky with the love of his life. Their date nights consisted of going to the movies or Waterfront Park to ride bikes for two and scooters. Dressing to impress his “Queen” made him smile. Being with family was also very important to him. He took pride in being a father, grandfather, brother and uncle.

Jimmy’s life passions were grilling, creating new food dishes, as well as repairing and restoring things that needed to be refurbished. He was very creative and talented with his hands. He was known to pop up a tent in various locations and sell food, gift baskets, and dog stacking boxes. Breeding dogs was a hobby for Jimmy, and he loved spending quality time with his dogs.

Jimmy was gainfully employed as a driver for Creation Garden Delivery Service, which he thoroughly enjoyed. He also worked at the Red Pepper Deli in Crestwood, being equipped to do various jobs. He enjoyed catering and making deliveries to events. During his time of illness, Jimmy even felt good about having the opportunity to return to Red Pepper to work a couple of days a week.

Jim’s love for people and intriguing conversation was quite evident. He had a friendly and outgoing demeanor, which people admired about him. He was known for his joking personality, and often you couldn’t detect whether he was serious or joking. Jim possessed the ability to make people laugh and smile, because he loved to see people happy.

Jimmy had good days and challenging days during his illness, but when he was in pain, he would not let it get the best of him, because it was then, that he would be soothed by listening to worship and gospel music. You would often hear Jim say, “It’s in the Lord’s hands”, and “God’s got me”.

Jimmy Dell Trussell, Jr., gained his wings on Friday, June 30, 2023, with his loving Fiance’, Daesha Blaking, and special niece, Tangier Trussell, by his side. He leaves to cherish his memories, his son, Daquan Trussell of Sandusky, OH; siblings, Donald Trussell of Sandusky, OH; Jacqueline Hopson (Ron) of Meridian, MS; Tina Trussell of Louisville, KY; Clint Trussell of Sandusky, OH; Alex Trussell of Sandusky, OH; Pamela Trussell Mosley of Jackson, MS; Jameka Mosley of Lauderdale, MS; Jeremy Trussell of Houston, TX; Stepmother, Mary Trussell of Lauderdale, MS; Grandchildren, Haiden Trussell, Camden Trussell, Leo Trussell, and Ariya Trussell, all of Sandusky, OH; and a host of nieces, nephews, great nieces, great nephews, and cousins.
