Kelly, along with Orlando Magic Executive Pat Williams, were awarded the 2020 John Saunders V Foundation Courage Award.

Kelly was first diagnosed with cancer in his upper jaw in 2013. He had surgery to remove cancer in 2014 and he announced that cancer returned in 2018.

After having another surgery, his wife Jill Kelly announced on Instagram in 2019 that Jim was cancer-free.

Kelly was awarded the Jimmy V Award for Perseverance in 2018 at the ESPYs award show.
