Description

This week on The Lucky Few Podcast, we are remembering James Eugene Lanto, better known as Jimbo, and even better known as Jimbo_Is_The_Man on Instagram.  Oh friends, where do we begin?  How do we honor such a valued life and such an important part of this community?  You see, for many of us in the online Down Syndrome world, Jimbo’s Instagram account was the first glimpse of what an adult life could look like for our little ones with extra chromosomes.  Jimbo’s spirit seen through those little squares on our phones gave us immense hope and great joy for our child’s future.  And for those of us who have other children without Down Syndrome, the loving action of Jimbo’s sisters erased our fears that our children’s siblings might one day grow bitter or resentful against their brother or sister with Down Syndrome.  In the eyes of Jimbo’s sisters (and all of his 10 other siblings), Jimbo was more than enough just as he was, never a burden, and always a blessing.


So friends, you know that Jimbo truly is the man, and his life deserves a celebration.  Who better to honor Jimbo than his sisters?  (Again!)  That’s right, we are re-releasing a very special episode featuring two of Jimbo’s sisters, Pam and Julie, that our long time listeners might recall as only our 2nd official episode of this podcast!  You see, Jimbo truly has been part of our journey since the very beginning.  We want to thank Jimbo’s entire family, especially his wonderful sisters, for sharing their light and truth with us.  You’ve given us hope and joy like no other.  And Jimbo, you did more for this world in 57 years than most could do with 500.  We are so lucky to have crossed paths with you and your family.  You truly make us #TheLuckyFew.
