Ms. Jimmy Westcott is active in Dallas-area charities. She is married to Carl Wescott. This ex-car dealer offered auto-training programming via satellite, a business that grew into Wescott Communications, a multi-million-dollar educational programming company. After selling the company to K-III Communications in the late 90s for $422 million, Carl Wescott founded Jayhawk Acceptance Corp. This company provides used car dealers with high-interest financing for high-risk customers. Unbeknownst to investors, Jayhawk itself turned out to be high risk. The company declared bankruptcy after eating $16 million in bad loans in 96.
