Our colleague, James “Jimmy” Willis, was a true embodiment of Convergint’s Values & Beliefs. From his strong work ethic to his sense of humor and commitment to his community – Jimmy was a wonderful colleague and friend.
Having grown up just outside of Houston, Texas, Jimmy attended Pearland High School and played the Alto Saxophone in the Pearland Marching Band. He was a member of Boy Scout Troop 464, where he earned the prestigious rank of Eagle Scout, which greatly shaped his future and loyalty to family, friends, and workplace.
Jimmy loved adventure, travel, and the outdoors. He was known for his zest for life, zany antics, bright smile, generosity, and he gave the biggest, most heartfelt hugs ever. He was hardworking. His first job was at a lawn mowing service with fellow scout and friend Brady Mercer. He then went on to work at Radio Shack, Brinks, and G-4S, where he developed his passion for the security industry and technology. He was the Lead Technician at Convergint in Houston, TX.
On June 16, 2020, Jimmy lost his battle with the COVID-19 virus. In celebration of his life, we are honored to establish the James Willis Scholarship in his name, which will provide educational financial grants to the children of deserving Convergint colleagues.
