Jaemor Farms founder dies

The founder of Jaemor Farms in Lula, Jimmy Echols, has died. The announcement was made by the company in a Facebook posting Saturday morning. No mention was made of the cause of death or when he passed away. Echols, 87, was also a former Hall County Commissioner.


“We are sad to announce the passing of our founder, namesake, and patriarch of the Echols family — Mr. Jim Echols, known to many as “Pop”.

Jim was a loving husband, father to five, and “Pop” to 20 grandchildren and 39 great-grandchildren.

He was proud of his family, his farm and his faith in Jesus. One of his passions was serving our customers day in and day out! While we already miss him so much, we know the streets of Heaven are rejoicing at his arrival. Please be in prayer for our family in the coming days.”
