 Jimmie Lee Solomon Death – Dead | Obituary – Passed Away

Jimmie Solomon Death – Dead: A great loss was made known to InsideEko. As friends and families of the deceased are mourning the passing of their loved and cherished Jimmie Solomon.

Having heard about this great loss, the family of this individual is passing through pains, mourning the unexpected passing of their beloved.

This departure was confirmed through social media posts made by Twitter users who pour out tributes, and condolences to the family of the deceased.

Today, I have lost a close friend, a trusted confidant, and a man who has been like a brother to me since shortly after the day we met at Harvard Law School.
Jimmie Lee Solomon came from humble beginnings, but he was the epitome of what it meant to build a successful life by working hard and making a difference in others’ lives.
He was born in the small town of Thompsons, Texas, in Fort Bend County and later attended Dartmouth College, where he played football and earned a degree in History.
Jimmie Lee practiced law for several years after graduating from Harvard Law School with honors.
Later, he joined Major League Baseball and became one of the most influential and highest-ranking Black executives for more than two decades while serving as the Executive Vice President of Baseball Operations and the Executive Vice President for Baseball Development. During his time at MLB, Jimmie Lee helped establish the first Urban Youth Baseball Academy in Compton, CA., and was instrumental in bringing the second academy to Houston, where it exists today in Sylvester Turner Park.
Last month, Jimmie Lee was excited to announce a new private equity firm with Houston Astros manager Dusty Baker and former New York Mets general manager Jim Duquette to help current and former MLB players grow their brand.
Despite all that he accomplished in life, one of his greatest joys was serving as a mentor to active and retired professional athletes. Jimmie Lee Solomon was a man blessed with many talents, confidence, intelligence, and determination.
I will always treasure his friendship and honor all that he accomplished in his 64 years. He had more deals to make and more barriers to shatter, but now he has finished the race.
I extend my sincerest condolences to Jimmie Lee’s family, including his daughter, grandchild, brothers and sisters, and a host of friends in Florida and Houston, where he divided his time.

When I worked at MLB, I met Jimmie Lee Solomon when I started. I told many then, that I thought he should be the next commissioner, when Bud retired. He commanded a room when he was in it.

Jimmie Lee died today suddenly, and it’s a real loss.

A man of great virtue & friendship.

Major League Baseball was worse off when Jimmie Lee Solomon wasn’t there anymore.

The world is worse off without him in it.

RIP Mr. Solomon.

RIP Jimmie Lee Solomon. If you had anything to do with Minor League baseball, the Arizona Fall League or MLB Scouting Bureau from the mid 90’s thru mid zeros you know Solly. Not a big man but when he walked in a room he owned it.

I send my deepest condolences to the Solomon family. Jimmie Lee Solomon was a mentor, an advocate for all that was good and he pioneered some groundbreaking programs for ⁦@MLB⁩. Please pray for his family and love ones. 🙏🏾 Rest In Peace

I just saw that Jimmie Lee Solomon passed away…and only 64 !!! What is going on ??? He did so much to promote baseball in the inner cities, etc. He was a man ahead of the curve to promote the minority player & causes in MLB. My thoughts are with his family

We are still working on getting more details about the death, as a family statement on the death is yet to be released.
