JIM EGGLESTON Jim Eggleston (right) with his father, granddaughter Charlie and grandson Jet, and son Jack. SEPTEMBER 2016 PA R K E R C O U N T Y T O D AY Jim Eggleston of Eggleston King, LLP has four grandchildren from his sons Jeff and Jack. Jeff is the father of Jas Bowling (20) and Grace (13). Jack also has a son and daughter. His daughter, Charlie is two and a half and his son Jet is only four months old. Charlie thinks her ‘Papa’ is the best “because he takes me to check on the cows and ride on the fourwheeler.” Jim also gave Charlie two of his long horns but Charlie is nice enough to let her Papa keep them at his farm so he can feed them for her. Although Jet is very young, you can tell he adores his Papa just as much as his big sister. Jim often plays tractors with Jet and they have the same haircut, so what is not to like? The eldest of the grandchildren, Jas appreciates everything Jim does for him. “He has always been supportive of me in everything I do,” he said. “He encourages me to strive to always do my very best.” His sister, Grace, had a list understandably, of all the things she loved about her “Papa Jim”. “I love when we shoot together and go book shopping and just hanging out with him,” she said. “He is such a big role model in my life. He is very smart, kind, funny, and a great person.” 25
