Jimmy "Jam" Garvin

James Williams was born on September 25, 1952 in Tampa, Florida.
He is a retired pro wrestler better known under his ring name Jimmy "Jam" Garvin as a member of the legendary Fabulous Freebirds.

Jimmy debuted in 1968 as Beau James, but he soon took the name "Gorgeous" Jimmy Garvin.
He had two "brothers", Terry and Ron Garvin (actually Jimmy was Ron's stepson in real life) who he managed for awhile.

When Jimmy went to World Class Championship Wrestling, he brought along his real life cousin Valerie French, better known as Sunshine.
After awhile, Jimmy brought in his real life wife Patti Williams as Precious.

Jimmy left WCCW with Precious and went to American Wrestling Association (AWA).

Then he went to the Jim Crockett Promotions/World Championship Wrestling, and feuded with Wahoo McDaniel, Brad Armstrong and Magnum T.A., Ric Flair, Kevin Sullivan and others.

In 1989 he joined the Fabulous Freebirds.
Actually Jimmy had wrestled with Micheal Hayes, Buddy Roberts and Terry Gordy back in WCCW and was always considered "The fourth Freebird".

In 1993, Jimmy left WCW and went to Global Wrestling Federation.

Jimmy did go back to the WCW one more time though in 1994 at Superbrawl IV when he replaced the "injured" Michael Hayes.

He is retired now, and is an accomplished pilot and flight instructor.
