Is there any issue with jumping from IOS version 12.2(35)SE5 to 15.0.2-SE11 on a Cisco WS-C3750G-48PS-S switch?

Should I upgrade to the latest 12.x first (12.2.55-SE12), and then move to the 15.x based IOS, or can I hop straight to 15.x?

    You can jump directly to your desired version without issues. The switch will upgrade the motherboard and various controllers in the boot phase.

Converting comment to an answer.

You can upgrade from version 12.2(35)SE5 directly to the newest IOS version for the switch 3750 series found on Cisco download center.

The upgrade process will automatically detect your system and upgrade various onboard controllers accordingly to support the new version. There's no need to do a midway upgrade.
