Dobson and his wife, Kristen; one niece, Hailey Brooke Dobson; his grandparents, Helen "Nanny" Hughes, Daniel "Da" Dobson and Dorothy "Mamaw" Dobson; and several aunts, uncles and cousins. James was preceded in death by his grandfather, Claude A. Hughes.

James attended Battlefield Elementary and Battlefield Middle. James was known at his elementary school as the "Mayor."
