James G. Schultz went to his heavenly reward on January 3, 2021 from complications of COVID-19.
Jim was born in Valley Stream, New York on April 8, 1949, the 3rd child of Jerry and Harriett Schultz and resided in Joplin, Missouri most of his life.

He married Brenda Endicott Flowers in October 1987 and she survives.
Jim is also survived by two sons Jason Christian Schultz, Atlanta, Georgia and James Schultz, whereabouts unknown. Two daughters Melodie Maynard, Bentonville, Arkansas and Dominiques Schultz, Joplin, Missouri; three stepchildren, Kristi Flowers, Galena, Kansas, Angel Flowers, Joplin, Missouri, Daniel Flowers, Galena, Kansas; one Godson, Brayden Bartley, Springfield, Missouri. He is also survived by his brother Don Schultz and wife Peggy, Webb City, Missouri, one sister Nancy Oxford, Joplin, Missouri; 15 grandchildren and 10 great grandchildren.

Jim was preceded in death by his parents, Jerry and Harriett Schultz, and one great granddaughter Charlotte Fernside.

Jim was an owner/operator of Standard Service Stations in Sarcoxie and Joplin, Missouri. He was co-owner of Metro Service Center and Joplin Truckstop in Joplin, Missouri. He retired after leaving Wallace Industries formerly known as Martin Oil Company. Most recently ne became the development director for a Christian nonprofit, Higher Power Garage, a position he was so excited to be a part of.

Much to his family’s dismay (because of his known clumsiness), Jim decided skydiving should be his sport. His first solo jump landed him in a barbed wire fence, but as he persisted, he became quite accomplished preforming beautiful formations with fellow jumpers. He enjoyed playing his trumpet but especially enjoyed woodworking with his brother Don. Jim was a former member of the Joplin Area Chamber of Commerce and served as an Elder at Cornerstone Christian Church. Jim’s biggest passion was for his Lord and Savior. He desired to serve others and loved people enormously. Being hospitalized the last weeks of his life did not hinder his passion for others.

From day one of his time there he was witnessing, encouraging, and praying for others, all of his caregivers, Drs., nurses, clergy, but especially for other patients, specifically COVID patients. Numerous hospital associates commented on what a special person Jim was. There is no doubt Jim’s final days brought glory to God and that was his heart’s desire. Jim was so well loved and will be missed beyond measure.

The family will conduct a memorial service at 1:00 pm Saturday January 16, 2021 at the Frisco Church, 908 W. Daughtery, Webb City, Missouri with Matt Snyder officiating.

Cremation arrangements are under the direction of Mason-Woodard Mortuary & Crematory Joplin, Missouri

What a Joy to be in church at Frisco with Jim and Brenda. Full of God and I always felt that his spirit could go and be with God at anytime. He just seemed to be that close to God and always talked of God and wanted everyone to know God as he did. When we take that last breath here, we take our first breath in Heaven with God. In a place where there is no time and all is perfect and the food is best ever and Jim can't believe his place that Jesus promised to prepare for him. Better than anything on earth and the music and worship to God the Father is Priceless! If Jim could only talk to us now of what he has already seen. Heaven is a place no one can afford to miss and is absolutely worth it all. Comfort and Peace be on all those who loved this most compassionate man full of passion that we called Jim. I want to hear him play that Heavenly Trumpet and so does Jesus. Hallelujah!!!

I worked with Jim at Auto Xpress back in the early 90's. He was so corny with his jokes and certainly was clumsy. He would always say something like "Don't leave that participle danglin'" everytime someone would ask where someone was( where's Jim at? There's the danglin' participle).Funny everytime!
My condolences to the family!
