Jimmy was a character in the film Friday the 13th: The Final Chapter in which he is portrayed by Crispin Glover. He is among the teenagers who rented the summer house next door to the Jarvis House on the Camp Crystal Lake grounds in 1984.
He is the 30th victim of Jason Voorhees.
In 1984, after an upsetting breakup with his girlfriend "BJ" Betty, Jimmy joins his friends on a trip to a summer house at Crystal Lake not knowing the murderous Jason Voorhees was still loose. His friend Ted teases him as being a "deadfuck" and convinces him to find someone new.
Sure enough the gang meets local twins Tina and Terri whom they go skinny dipping with. Later they invite the girls to the house. After an unsuccessful attempt to court Terri, Jimmy manages to hit it with Tina who was originally going to be with Ted. He proves he is not a "deadfuck" after he sleeps with her. Jimmy then goes to gloat to Ted and celebrate with a bottle of wine. While searching for a corkscrew, he asks "Ted, hey, Ted, where the hell's the corkscrew?" when Jason appears from the shadows and slams it into Jimmy's hand and hits him in the face with a meat cleaver which means "Right here!".
Trish Jarvis later finds Jimmy's body crucified on the back entrance to the house. She then breaks a nearby window to escape and runs toward her house. A pursuing Jason simply walks though the back entrance tearing down Jimmy's body. His corpse and the corpses of the others were found and taken to Wessex County Morgue.
In the non-canon future because it's in the comics, a Deadite version of Jimmy, complete with a meat cleaver in his face and a corkscrew through his hand, was summoned by Freddy Krueger via the Necronomicon Ex-Mortis in the winter of 2008. After being summoned Jimmy and his fellow Deadites swarm and begin beating Jason. While Jimmy and the other Deadites at first have the advantage, Jason manages to kill them all after reclaiming his earlier dropped machete.
