    Thanks for being a true friend and a part of the FS90 crew that made it so much fun to be assigned there. Some great memories were made both on and off duty like out at the Hook ‘n Ladder, watching your band at the Sagebrush (power went out after the 1st song), and especially all of our family events. We’re all gonna miss you. God bless.

    It is with a heavy heart that I heard of your passing Jim. I will always remember the good times we had working together and listening to you play your drums. Sweet Home Alabama will never be the same to me. You will be greatly missed Brother.

    Jimmy had a great smile, great laugh, and personality. If you were around him, you were in for a good time. I met Jim in junior high and got to know him well ion the Fire Department. We surfed, rode dirt bikes, camped, and water skied. Great times, I will never forget. The last time I spent time with Jim was at San O, surfed all day, drank beer, and ate fish tacos. That is how I will remember Jim. Gone before your time my friend and no more pain.
    God Bless you Jim and yours. RIP
    Love ya, Nelly😀😜🐷

    Jim and I first worked together at FS 89. Nobody enjoyed life and laughter more than Jim Como. Jim made everyone’s day he was the life of the party with his great laugh and personality. His band played for my daughters graduation and at her wedding reception. “Full House” also played for my 50th B day. Jim and the band made those occasions so special and fun. I don’t have the words to express how sad my family and I are over the loss of Jim.

    Jim,you are missed and will not be forgotten.

    I first Jim when he was assigned to fire station 94 in early 90’s. He was a great person to have around the firehouse. his personality , his work ethic, and his love of life was contagious. he fit well with all the members assigned there at the time.. I remember how he could make you laugh and he did have the greatest smile!! I really enjoyed going to see his band play at the sagebrush cantina in the past.. Jim had intense energy and I will truly miss him!! His family and the fire department family loss one great member. Rest in peace brother Jim
    your friend always , Michael Gerken

    I too first met Jim at FS 94. He was a great person to have around the fire station. I never saw Jim without a smile on his face. When I told my wife of Jim’s passing, she said “I remember him. He was always smiling and happy.” Jim will truly be missed. My thoughts and prayers are with you Jim. God bless you, Jim.

  8. I had the pleasure of meeting Captain Como several times servicing within his battalion for insurance. He was always so chipper on the phone even if it was early and maybe they’d been up late/early. Sitting with the whole station in the kitchen and seeing the dynamic he had w his guys made my time there so much fun. As a captain he was such an example, stand up kind of guy. His family, friends, and the department definitely suffered a loss that resonates. He will be missed.
