Encyclopedia > Jimmy Dean (brand)

Jimmy Dean Foods is a food company that was founded in 1969 by entertainer Jimmy Dean, and later purchased by Consolidated Foods, later renamed the Sara Lee Corporation. Also: 1969 (number) 1969 (movie) 1969 (Stargate SG-1) episode. ... For the brand Jimmy Dean Sausage, see Jimmy Dean (brand). ... Sara Lee Corporation (NYSE: SLE) is a global consumer-goods company based in Downers Grove, Illinois, USA. It has operations in more than 40 countries and sells its products in over 180 nations worldwide. ...

Dean founded the Jimmy Dean Sausage brand originally called "Pure Pork Sausage." Despite ups and downs (some revolving around his problems with his partner-brother Don Dean), the Jimmy Dean Sausage company did well, in part due to Dean's own extemporized, good-humored commercials.

Dean remained involved in running the company after the takeover, though they eventually began phasing him out of any management duties, a traumatic period that took a toll on his health. By 2004, he was no longer acting as spokesman, and enjoys his retirement living with second wife Donna Meade Dean, whom he married in 1991.
