Last September, Jamie was one of four men lost at sea during a tragic accident involving a storm of hurricane strength. Search efforts were conducted for 6 months following with only minimal debris recovered from the boat. Sadly, no remains were located.
A memorial service will take place on his birthday, Friday, Aug. 7, 2009, starting at Northstar Church at 7 p.m., Pastor Marty Martin officiating. Followed with a Celebration of Life at the Frank Nelson Community Building from 8-10 p.m. All are invited to come as you are and join us in remembering this unforgettable guy.
Jamie, 34, lived in Bay County his whole life. Attended Southport Elementary, Mowat Middle School and graduated from Mosley High School in 1992. He married his high school sweetheart, Karrie Cameron, in 1996. In 2001, they had a beautiful daughter, Madie. He was a Merchant Marine and worked as a marine engineer.
