Born in Switzerland, possibly in the Canton of Bern, Ramser immigrated to the United States in 1868 with his eldest son Paul. After setting up a business in the city he sent for the rest of his family to join him. He owned and operated the J. Ramser Jewelry Store which later was renamed J. Ramser Son's when three of this son's learned the trade and began to work with their father. He was a leading citizen in the city of Rock Island in the late nineteenth century when he died in 1901.

Buried in an unmarked grave possibly in the Ramser family plot.
