Jimmy Butler Story
Jimmy Butler Family
According to Jimmy’s biography at Marquette Jimmy Butler is one of four children born to Londa and Jimmy Butler Sr. Certainly, by now you know about the two special people added to Jummy’s family, his daughter Rylee and girlfriend Kaitlin Novak.
Jimm Butler Mother
Jimmy Butler’s mother, Londa Marie Butler was born Londa Osborne on March 10, 1961.
Butler has much-providing support, most likely his biggest fan? His mother, Londa and also Michelle Lambert (pictured below), Mrs. Lambert is mom to Jordan Leslie, Butler’s childhood friend who he met at basketball camp.
Before his senior year Butler crossed paths with Leslie, a freshman, at a summer basketball tournament. The two teens quickly discovered a shared love of sports, and Leslie’s own childhood struggles helped him connect to Butler
Their story, however, has a rough start. The last words from his mom before throwing him out of the house at 13: “I don’t like the look of you. You gotta go.”
Jimmy was then taken into the home of the Lamberts, who already had 7 children. Four of her own with her later husband and three from her second husband’s first marriage.
Jimmy would begin coming to Leslie’s house day after day, soon enough spending multiple nights at a time there. The entire family became very close to Jimmy and over time the mother, Michelle Lambert, grew fond of Jimmy. With the family’s connection to Jimmy growing stronger, Michelle would give in and decide to adopt Jimmy. With support from a family for the first time, Jimmy began excelling in his B-ball game.
Michelle Lambert recalled what she told Jimmy “I told him my kids looked up to him. He had to stay out of trouble. Work hard in school. He had to set an example. And you know what? Jimmy did it. Anything I asked him to do, he did it without asking questions.”
“They accepted me into their family. And it wasn’t because of basketball. She was just very loving. She just did stuff like that. I couldn’t believe it.” Jimmy said.
Jimmy Buttler and his mother Londa Butler, seem to have overcome that difficult time.
“Me and my family are on great terms now. I’m good. I’m OK. You learn everybody makes mistakes. I make mistakes. That means you don’t hold a grudge against anybody. I’ve grown up so much because this game has taught me you don’t take anything for granted. You respect everybody. You make sure everybody feels wanted.”
According to online records she has worked at Tomball Retirement Center, she has lived in Tomball, TX; Houston, TX and is also related to Lonnie Osborne, Ivory Doakes, Archie Osborne, Terry Osborne and Lanetta Osborne.
According to her Facebook page, she currently is a Private sitter for CARING @ LOVING FOR. Londa attended Tomball High School, she belongs to the class of 1980 · The Woodlands, Texas; as well as Lone Star College-Tomball -Medical Office Receptionist · Tomball, Texas. She has listed Shanique Dickerson as her daughter.
She is originally from Tomball, Texas, and resides in Houston, TX.
