Dear Knox County Schools Family,
On behalf of Superintendent Kelly Sprinkles, it is with sorrow that I share information on the passing of another member of the Knox County Schools family. Jimmy Messer, a bus driver serving the Lynn Camp area, passed away on Saturday, December 29. He is survived by his wife, Debbie, who is also a driver for our district.
To Debbie and his family, I express condolences on behalf of the Superintendent, Board, and our colleagues. Jimmy was a valuable member of the KCPS team. He drove bus #1106, a handicap bus, in which he transported some of Knox County’s most precious students.
A memorial service for Jimmy will be held on Saturday, January 5, at the Corbin Center for Technology and Community Activities (222 Corbin Center Drive.) Visitation will be from 1pm – 3pm. The funeral will be at 3pm.
The family asks that you please do not send flowers.
Please keep the Messer family in your thoughts and prayers.
