Former Amite Bar Owner Dies in Drowning

The Tangipahoa Parish Sheriff's Office reports the drowning death of 64 year old Jimmy Chandler of Roseland.

Chief Jimmy Travis says on May 24, 2023, deputies responded to reports of a capsized boat around 7:45 PM on Highway 51 in the Arcola Community just north of Roseland. According to investigators, Chandler and a friend were fishing in a small pond when the boat became imbalanced and overturned. When Chandler failed to resurface, the friend called 911. 

The TPSO Flotilla Unit responded, along with the Amite Fire Department and Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries. Chandler's body was later recovered and pronounced deceased by the Tangipahoa Parish Coroner's Office. 

Chandler was well known in the Amite and Fluker areas as the owner of two bars, Mister J's and Mister J's #2.
