Jim was born October 25th, 1946 in Ottumwa, Iowa to Dr. Russell James Beamer and Grace M. Guyett Beamer. He moved to College Station with his family at the age of 5, and attended A&M Consolidated Schools. He also attended Allen Academy for two years before enrolling at Texas A&M University, receiving his Bachelor of Sociology Degree from Texas A&M in 1969.

Jim began his criminal justice career in 1968 as a correctional officer with the Texas Department of Corrections. In June 1969, while attending Texas A&M University, Jim joined the College Station Police Department, where he held positions of increasing responsibilities. He was hired as a police officer and at the time he left in October 1979 he held the dual positions of Captain of Special Services and Supervisor of the College Station Municipal Court.
In October 1979 Jim joined the Brazos County criminal justice system, initially as an Adult Probation Officer and later accepted the position of Chief Deputy with the Brazos County Sheriff's Office under Sheriff Bobby Yeager. He continued to serve in this role under Sheriff Ronnie Miller from 1985 until December 1992.

In January 1993, Jim joined the Judicial District Community Supervision and Corrections Department for Walker, Grimes, and Madison Counties as an Adult Probation Officer and was stationed in Grimes County. In August 1993, he was promoted to Supervisor of the Grimes County Office. He faithfully served in that capacity until 2002.

In November 2002, Jim eventually returned to the city where his career path started, accepting the responsibilities as a bailiff for the City of College Station Municipal Court. He served this court until his retirement in 2009.

Jim's passion was riding his Harley-Davidson Motorcycles.

Jim was preceded in death by his father Russell "Rusty" in 1960, and his mother Grace in 2001. He is survived by his former wife Anne Huebner Beamer of Navasota; his sister Nancy Beamer Willerson of Houston; George Huebner III of College Station; Meg Huebner Woody and husband Allen of Dallas; Nancy Huebner Brown and husband Rob of College Station; numerous nieces and nephews; and a host of family and friends in law enforcement and in the community.

Special thanks to Pat and Jim Booth and the rest of our Independence Harley Davidson family.
