Jenkins, James Jay

Appears in Salvation in Death; (c. May 2060)[1]

Personal InformationEdit

DescriptionEdit

  • He has a bass voice[3] and was about thirty pounds overweight; he carried most of it in his belly.[4]

PersonalityEdit

  • He enjoyed his loving wife of thirty-eight years, Jolene; their three children and five grandchildren; those occasional sly swigs of vodka; his current mistress Ulla Pintz; and preaching God's holy word.[5]
  • He believed he could—and had—saved scores of souls since he first began and believed his lifestyle, like the diamond rings on each of his hands, was reward for his good works.[6]
    • He accepted he was a sinner—the vodka, his sexual peccadillos—but he also believed only God could claim perfection.[7] According to Billy Crocker, he believed every man was entitled, even required to have flaws and weakness[8] and believed God meant man to have more than one wife.[9]

HistoryEdit

  • He started out in Little Yazoo, Mississippi as a preacher[10] and built his church on sweat, charisma, a talent for showmanship, and the utter and unshakable faith that he was right.[11]

Homicide InformationEdit

  • As he was on stage preaching, he drank from the third water bottle, coughed, choked, convulsed and fell.[12]
  • When Eve Dallas examined his body, she caught the faintest whiff of almonds.[13] He was poisoned with cyanide.[14]
  • Billy murdered him and said it was only a matter of time before his sins were discovered. Sins that could have irreparably damaged all the work that came before. The church is bigger than any of them and must be protected.[15]
    • Billy obtained the cyanide from a dealer of illegals, in the underground of Times Square, and added it to the third bottle of water that was onstage.[16]

Interesting FactsEdit

  • He prepares to deliver his sermons with a shot of vodka, followed by two breath strips.[17] He always took the last twenty or thirty minutes alone before he went on stage.[18]
  • He has twenty-six white suits with which he wears various colorful bow ties and matching suspenders (his handkerchief matched his tie).[19]
  • Jolene said he spoiled her, their daughters, and their grandchildren. She said he had a soft spot for children.[20] Billy Crocker said the relationship between Jimmy Jay and Jolene was devoted, absolutely devoted.[21]
  • While they were in New York, they stayed in a town house on Park Avenue.[22]
  • The church's assets and the family's personal assets, combined, are worth upward of six billion dollars.[23]
    • They have multiple homes, luxury vehicles, considerable staff, art, jewelry. They are all—including the minor children—on the church payroll. The church pays very well.[24]
  • Ulla Pintz and Jimmy Jay were having an affair; she said she and Jimmy Jay loved each other in a different way from the way he loved Jolene or from how Ulla loves her almost fiancé Earl back in Tupelo.[25] They 'created light' with each other (when having sex) but, through the pleasure, they gained a deeper understanding.[26]
    • Their affair went on for four months, two weeks, and five days; they met two or three times a week and sometimes backstage.[27] She said they met again the day of his death because it was such a big night, it was important for Jimmy Jay to have all the light and energy they could make.[28]
