Like many residents in Lily Dale, Jimmy is one of the psychics living in town but is an actual one, unlike the others. Before Sam and Dean arrived, despite possessing real psychic powers, Jimmy was unable to make a living, as he lacked showmanship and just scared people. Frustrated at his failure, while so many fakes were succeeding, Jimmy dug up one of the Fox sister's bones in order to bind the ghost into killing for him. Jimmy is soon visited by the brothers asking for the necklace that Granny Goldy owned.
Later on, Sam visits him asking about some purchases, but Jimmy lies sending Sam elsewhere. Sam eventually turns up at Jimmy's house where Jimmy points a gun at Sam and reveals that he is a real psychic and after Sam destroys his altar and breaks the spell, however, it turns out Margaret Fox was willingly serving him even without the leash. When Sam figures out where he hid the bones, Jimmy shoots at him but misses, forcing Sam to kill him in self-defense.
