Late 1960's, Jimmy began his professional career at the age of 16 with summer employment at the Memphis Zoological Garden as a clown for its daily one-ring circus.

Early 1970's, Jimmy became a member of the Al Chymia Shriners' Clown Unit in Memphis, Tennessee. He continued to use Grandpa Bailey's make-up kit and costume.

Late 1980's, Jimmy became a member of the Woodland Hills Shriners' Clown Club in Los Angeles, California. He now had his own much larger make-up kit and a couple of his own costumes. He introduced two new personal clown entities: Hobo 01 and Auguste 04. All of this Clown Club's gigs were for charitable causes. They regularly visited nursing homes to entertained seniors.

Each of these clown troops furthered local charities as their purpose.

Jimmy worked the party of family and friends as Auguste 03 with: balloon sculptures, comedic stich, face painting, juggling, and magic (both stage and close-up). Efern's face beamed joy and his excitement was contagious! This sadly, turned out to be Efern's last birthday as he succumbed to leukemia. Jimmy's still on-call for Make-A-Wish.
