The Hendersonville Police Department is mourning the loss of Lieutenant Jimmy Case who passed away unexpectedly on April 11, 2019.
Jimmy was a longtime Hendersonville Police Department officer serving the city since 1999. He was promoted to Sergeant in 2012, became an acting Lieutenant in 2017, and received a promotion to full Lieutenant earlier this year. Over the years, Jimmy served as a K9 officer, motorcycle officer, hostage negotiator, and Alive at 25 instructor for the department.
Most recently he was honored with the Bill Powers Leadership Award for Supervisor of the Year during the department’s annual award ceremony last month. Before joining the Hendersonville Police Department, Jimmy served with the Henderson County Sheriff’s Office from 1984-1994. Jimmy was a great man who made a big impact in the community.
The Hendersonville Police Department appreciates the outpouring of support they have received from the community as well as their fellow law enforcement and first responder brothers and sisters. The agency’s thoughts and prayers go out to Jimmy’s family and friends during this time.
Service arrangements will be announced at a later time.
