My Time with Pastor Jimmy Terry


Written by Charlie Koon

Charlie KoonClarksville, TN – The tributes to Pastor Jimmy Terry have been fast a furious since the passing of the beloved community activist.  His life’s work has been glorified through the testimony of hundreds and thousands of Clarksville area residents, who have been touched by his loving spirit, and service to his community.  

Incoming Clarksville Area Chamber of Commerce President, Charlie Koon, penned this letter about his relationship with Pastor Terry, and a visit he had with him in his final days. 

As someone who has been fairly active in Clarksville for most of my life, I’ve known Pastor Terry for a long time. He has been a fixture in our community, showing up at Chamber events, school functions, ball games and ringing the Salvation Army bell at Christmas time. Our paths have crossed countless times, over the years.

Jimmy Terry.
