He was born on October 29, 1966 to late Frank and Sybil (Nabors) Cornelius in Hahira, GA. Jody worked as a Craftsman building furniture and later his love for the outdoors led him to become a hunting and fishing guide. His true passion was the rescuing of dogs needing a forever home and was working to operate his own rescue.
Jody is survived by his two sisters, Dina Carden of Okeechobee, FL and Daphne Lentz of GA; his best friend, Benny Williams of Plymouth, NC; and many nieces and nephews.
