The former football player has no daughter with either of his wives.

Jimbo’s Wife: The Fisher Family Matriarch

Jimbo was previously married to Candi Fisher, and the former couple first met at Samford University.

The former couple began dating during that time and tied the knot in 1989. Their marriage ended after 22 years due to Candi’s infidelity.

Although the divorce was difficult for the youngest, Ethan, both sons eventually overcame the incident and began living with their father.

Later, Jimbo met Courtney Harrison during his coaching days at FSU.

They developed mutual affection and began dating, eventually marrying in 2020.

Unlike his previous wife, Courtney has kept her private life updates out of the limelight.

In 2011, doctors diagnosed Fisher’s youngest son Ethan with Fanconi anemia, a rare genetic disease, at six.

It is a rare blood disease that prevents bone marrow from making enough new blood cells for the body to work normally.

Jimbo and Candi then co-founded the Kidz 1st Fund, raising over $5 million for research and increasing awareness about the disorder.

Their foundation is now the primary research investor and has discovered a cure for the disease.

Father Jim expressed immense happiness for contributing to the research, leading to the discovery of gene transplantation as the cure.

Reports indicate that they performed the transplant procedure on Ethan Fisher in June of this year.

The Eldest and Youngest Fishers

Trey Fisher, like his father, is a football player for the Florida A&M Rattlers football.

When asked about his game and what he aspires to, Trey said, “I am no one, I am just Trey Fisher. I aspire to be like my father.”

In contrast to the two Fisher brothers, the family has not shared information about the youngest, Kelley Fisher, with the public.
