Jim and Mary would each own 1/2 of 1/3 before Jim death. Upon Jim's death, Mary would continue to retain her 1/2 of that 1/3. And, Jim's will would then dictate what would happen to Jim's 1/2 of that 1/3. If Jim did not have a will, then, the Missouri intestate succession laws would dictate who would inherit Jim's 1/2 of that 1/3.
