Jimmy Ho

May 3, 1954 — March 18, 2024

Jimmy Viet Ho, 69, passed away suddenly on March 18 in Brenham, Texas where he has resided for the past 40 years. He was born in Phenom Penh, Cambodia to Thanh Viet Ho and Minh Thi Tran. After moving to Vietnam to escape from Pol Pot, Jimmy made the difficult decision to leave his family in search of a better life and started his journey to America in the 1980s. He met his wife, Kim Oanh Vo, of 31 years, in 1993 and became a devoted father in 1994 to Angela Ho.

Throughout his life, Jimmy exemplified the true spirit of a team player, and someone that others can depend on. Whether it was in his professional career or family life, he always prioritized his friends and those he loved through his incredible work ethic. Every day, Jimmy loved going to work, where he would always be in good spirits with his friends. In his professional endeavors, Jimmy was known as someone who could bring people together and foster a sense of camaraderie within his team. He understood the value of cooperation and was always willing to lend a helping hand to his colleagues, ensuring that everyone worked together towards a common goal. His leadership style was characterized by inclusivity, respect, and a genuine concern for the well-being of those around him.

Within his family, Jimmy was an anchor and rock for those around him, providing unwavering support, kindness, guidance, and encouragement to his loved ones. He is the proud father of his only child, Angela whom he loved deeply. His commitment to family extended far beyond merely providing; he self-taught his wife, daughter, nephew, and siblings how to drive. He cherished family gatherings and cherished meals spent together, knowing that the bonds of love and togetherness were the foundation of a strong and united family unit. Later in his life, he discovered his new passion for going on family cruise trips with his wife, daughter and son-in-law.

Jimmy's legacy as a team player, leader, proud husband, and father will continue to inspire those who had the privilege of knowing him. His ability to bring people together, his selflessness, and his dedication to the greater good will forever be remembered and cherished by all who were fortunate enough to be a part of his team. Colleagues, friends, and family alike all know Jimmy for his serious expression, but he often times used it to his advantage when delivering a joke. With a straight face that could rival any poker player, he could make anyone laugh. Anyone who was lucky enough to meet Jimmy knew his quick-witted humor was matched only by his capacity to care deeply for those around him oftentimes at the expense of himself. He will be loved and missed by many.

Jimmy is survived by his loving wife, Kim Oanh Vo, his daughter, Angela Ho Beane, and her husband Eric Beane, his older brothers, Cuong Viet Ho (and his spouse) and Hung Viet Ho (and his spouse), older sister, Ha Thi Thu Ho, and his younger sisters, Hang Thi Thu Ho, Huong Thi Thu Ho, Hoang Thi Thu Ho (and her spouse), Hanh Thi Thu Ho (and her spouse) and his younger brother Viet Ra Ho (and his spouse). Additionally, he has nephews and nieces around the world, who will cherish his memory forever.

He was preceded in death by his father, Thanh Viet Ho, mother, Minh Thi Tran, older brother Nam Viet Ho, and younger sister Net Thi Thu Ho as well as other siblings who passed in infancy.
