He was a self- taught linguist who spoke several languages fluently, among them: Greek, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese & French.  He had a natural ear for languages and was able to learn simply by listening and speaking with native speakers. Most recently he had been learning Arabic. He had a vast knowledge of cultures and history and an insatiable curiosity that endeared him to many non-English speakers, as he took the time to learn how to communicate with them.  He was able to use his linguistic abilities when he worked as a concierge at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, greeting and assisting people visiting the hospital in their own language. Jimmy was an avid gardener and landscaper and for many years, along with his mother, he grew a sumptuous vegetable garden. His love of culture and organic farming spread to his cooking where he prepared wonderful meals and freshly baked cookies for his family and he was the keeper of his mother’s many Greek recipes. Jimmy loved being outdoors and could be frequently seen along Revere Beach, either running or walking, from Elliot Circle to the Point of Pines. Although he had many personal struggles, Jimmy was always quick to help others displaying deep compassion and empathy. Jimmy found solace in his strong faith and his friendship with Bill W.

He is the devoted son of the late Thomas E. Ackerman & Mary P. (Theophiles) Ackerman. Cherished brother of Mary Lauriat & her husband Philip of Wakefield, Patricia “Patti” Ackerman- Felt, of Saugus, Janis DelGaizo & husband John of Lynnfield, Thomas F.
