I can’t say enough good things about Jamie to do him justice. He was a wonderful neighbor. Always ready to help everyone out even if they didn’t ask. He just saw you needed help and never hesitated to be there. He has helped out almost every neighbor on this street. He was a great dad, grandfather and just an all around good human being. He will be so missed RIP JAMIE


Way to soon

I knew Jamie for as long as i can remember. Theres not much you can say bad about this man. But if you wanted to say the good well you’ll be here for awhile. From growning up being his neighbor to living across the street being older. Jamie went out of his way to help someone out didnt matter with what. I know ill miss getting the Christmas package from him. Ill also miss just talking with him about anything whenever i got the chance to see him. Rest easy Jamie

Celebrate Jamie’s Life

Meeting Jamie years ago in the construction industry , found him to be fun loving , honest and full of integrity , as a job superintendent he was the best ! One of the funniest times were when a fellow worker brought in a picture of Jamie as Prom king at St. Henry ‘s , he got quite a kick out of it . Jamie will truly be missed , he was a fine man . RIP Jamie , my friend ! Steve Gilliam , Espenscheid Plbg .

Find memories

Grew up with Jamie through grade school and high school. Bowled with him and Matt and Tony Cahill and Joey Ritchie. Jamie was always such a warm and kind soul. Heartbreaking to know he’s left this world. Rest In Peace Jamie.
