Jimmy DiMeo is the dad who has heart-to-hearts with his kids. He teaches them the importance of embracing and believing in your family. No matter what. And then he teaches them the intricacies of his carefully crafted DiMeo Way – such as letting their neighbors know just how little to expect from them and finding furniture steals in curbside garbage. Jimmy lives for cheap fun. But he's also engineered himself to be the steady, mellow and light presence the family needs. He works a steady, if sometimes unfulfilling, job to support them and get the healthcare benefits JJ needs. And Jimmy's a doting husband who's lucky enough to be madly in love with a fiery woman with whom life will always be nothing less than thrilling.
