Jim Woods is from Oakman, AL. He is the father of four boys (28,26,24,24) and was married to Debbie Walton for 27 years until she passed away. Jim started his working career as a bag boy at the local grocery store until he finished high school. He then went to work in the underground coal mines with his father, brothers, and uncles for 7 years. With two young children and twins on the way, he was laid off by the coal mines.
In an effort to pay the bills, Jim started cleaning up cars for some of the local dealers in Jasper. Little by little, he would buy and sell a few trade-ins and eventually it turned into a full time job. He started Jim Woods Automotive 24 years ago with one location primarily focused on wholesaling cars. Jim now operates under the name Jasper Auto Sales, and has expanded to as many as 4 locations all in Jasper. His business is consistently in the top 5 among independent auto dealers in the State of Alabama. Jim is a member of the Parrish Church of Christ where he is a deacon, he is a trustee at Oakman Highschool and sponsors a scholarship there in his wife’s memory. He has two grandchildren and another on the way. Jim enjoys the car business and often says its his favorite hobby. He also enjoys grilling and spending time with his family.
