Jamie was my brother-in-law, Julie’s husband. I am heart broken about his untimely death. My sister, her children, his daughter Kaylee, his twin sister‘s Deanna & Darla, and his mom Belle, are all devastated & missing him terribly.
Jamie was a great provider & loved working on the house & yard. He also loved to work out at the gym...almost as much as he loved to eat!
I never saw Jamie happier, than on the day he married my sister -surrounded by their family & friends. When looking at his wife, you could see how proud & in love with her he was.
When talking about his daughter, his eyes always lit up, and he had a glow whenever mentioning his Mom & Sisters. He also had compassion for me during my illness, and frequently asked how I was doing. It really meant a lot. I pray that the good memories the family have of him will help them through this difficult time. He was a good Man & at the end of it all, that’s what matters.
RIP Jamie, you were so loved & will be forever missed.
Love your favorite sister in-law,
Jamie was a very good man. I knew Jamie from gym, he had a great personality and never short of a sharp remark. We joked with each other constantly. My condolences to the family, I know it does little to calm the pain and loss but prayers will help.
My heart and prayers go out to you, Julie, Belle, Kaylee, Darla, Deanna. Jamie was an amazing person and I know his loss will be felt deeply. My thoughts are with you in this time and if ever you need anything, you've only to ask.
My favorite memory of Jamie is a recent one. We'd gone up to Jenni's cabin for a weekend away. Jamie's first with us in all these years. Somehow, I'm not not quite sure, we found ourselves playing beer bong. I won, thank you. But he was funny and in great spirits. All weekend long. I'm very grateful we got that time with him and will have those memories.
