February 27, 1938 - April 13, 2021
James “Jim” Martin Jenner passed away peacefully on Tuesday, April 13, 2021, to his heavenly home. Jim was born on February 27, 1938, in Lake City, South Carolina. At the age of 11, Jim’s parents, Edward and Lottie Jenner moved to Laurel, Mississippi where they established a successful drive-in movie theater business called The Original Cinema. As an adult, Jim became co-owner of the family business and developed numerous drive-in movie theaters throughout Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and Florida. Jim was an extraordinarily talented artist and enjoyed creating landscape and portrait paintings. Jim’s true passion was rebuilding and restoring antique cars. He took special pride in preserving the authentic craftsmanship and beauty of vintage American automobiles engineered in the 1920’s through the 1960’s. Left to cherish his memory is his beloved, longtime companion and best friend of 38 years, Stephanie Lloyd Robinson who he affectionately called “Jellybean”, his five daughters, Denise Jenner McAndrews (Ronnie), Therise Jenner Perez (Joe), Brandy Jenner LeCesne (Terrel), Jennifer Raquel Jenner, and Melissa Rene Jenner, his eleven grandchildren, Brandon, Deanne, Brianne, Daniel, Stephen, Terry, Colin, Phoenix, Evan, Joshua, and Abigail and his four great-grandchildren, Evan, Caden, Taylor and Rhylie Dey. He is also survived by Everett “Robbie” Robinson IV (Cindy) who he considered to be the son he never had. He was the special “Papa” to Lindsey Lloyd and Kelsey Robinson. Graveside services will be held Friday, April 16, 2021 at Lake Park Cemetery in Laurel. The Honorable Judge Charles Pickering will officiate. Friends and family will serve as pall bearers.
