Jefferson White, the actor behind Yellowstone’s Jimmy, is urging fans, followers, friends, and family alike – to wear masks and beat COVID-19.

Much like his beloved Yellowstone character, series star Jefferson White is proving to have a heart of gold. Posting to Instagram today, White leaves a touching, heartfelt message to his communities regarding the ongoing, deadly COVID-19 pandemic.

“I am sending love today to those of you in North Dakota, Montana, Wisconsin, Minnesota, my home state of Iowa and everywhere else suffering so acutely from COVID-19 right now,” White begins. “We’ve seen this thing move across the country in waves and we know we can beat it,” he adds.

Furthering his plea, White asks his followers to “please, please take care of yourself and your community by staying home when you can and wearing a mask when you can’t.”

In turn, White believes the answer is to “protect your family by protecting your community. We are all in this together and we will all overcome this together.”

Jefferson White has a Heart as Big as Jimmy’s

Yellowstone fans know Jimmy has lived a rough life – to put it plainly. The young country boy is a convicted felon twice over and is as plagued by his own bad decisions as he is by horrible luck. For anyone that knows someone like this, however, it is often true that they have the biggest hearts of all of us. And like Jimmy, Jefferson fits into this same category.

As a result, Jimmy has found a family in the fellow ranch hands of Yellowstone. While they have been immensely hard on him, Jimmy has come to earn at least a shred of their respect. With Rip Wheeler, too, he’s even gained somewhat of a surrogate father. Or twisted uncle, at least.

Some of the show’s best plotlines come from the dichotomy of the blue-collar ranch hands when pitted against the well-off Duttons. Jimmy has been at the core of this struggle many times. As a result of White’s heart and talent, Yellowstone’s producers seem to love him as much as he loves the show.

Because of this, Paramount & Yellowstone celebrated Jefferson White’s birthday with this epic ‘Jimmy’ Trailer – which you can watch right here.
