Jamie Kimble, thirty-one year old beloved daughter of Charlotte Deputy City Manager Ron Kimble and his wife Jan, was murdered by her former boyfriend on Labor Day, 2012. Jamie’s smile and zest for life were matched only by the selfless manner in which she served others. She also showed tremendous courage to leave an abusive relationship. Upon her death, Jamie’s parents established The Jamie Kimble Foundation for Courage to raise awareness of domestic violence issues, to help other victims of abuse, and to fund innovative programs that will curb the spread of domestic violence.
