Jimmy Lee played the drums in high school and college. His college friend, Gary Stewart, even tried to get him to go on the road with him. One of his favorite songs to play on the drums was "Wipe Out". In high school he was very active in all sports, being especially remembered for football.

He enjoyed golfing, hunting, fishing, and time at the lake with family and friends.
