Jimmy is the Congressman for the 20th Congressional District. He previously served as a Deputy District Attorney in Monterey County, where he was assigned to the Gang Team in Salinas, responsible for prosecuting violent gang members. Jimmy began his legal career in 1996 as a prosecutor for the Alameda County District Attorney's Office in Oakland. Jimmy was appointed to the California Councils on Criminal and Juvenile Justice, which provided guidance to the Governor’s Office on critical criminal justice programs.

In 2003, Jimmy was commissioned as an Intelligence Officer with the United States Navy Reserve. Four years later, he voluntarily took a leave of absence from work and left home to serve on active duty with a Special Operations task force deployed to Afghanistan. Based on his meritorious service in a combat zone, Jimmy was awarded the Bronze Star.

Jimmy’s experience with foreign policy extends beyond the military. He previously worked on missile and chemical weapons nonproliferation issues for the U.S. Department of State in Washington, D.C. and at the Monterey Institute of International Studies.

Jimmy also chairs the Monterey Peninsula College Citizens Bond Oversight Committee and serves as a Trustee on the Foundation for the University of California at Santa Cruz.
