I'm beyond devastated to hear of Jamie's passing. My heart goes out to Jim, Robin, Jamie's wife, and daughters and all family and friends.

I spent a lot of time with Jamie on the baseball fields and trips around this country and others as a kid. I can't believe the Jamie show has come to a close too soon. I will always cherish those memories growing up with Jamie, Jim and all the EOC Rookies!

Grandma Van, Robin & Jim - no (grand)parent should ever have to bear the loss of their child. Fond and treasured memories of Jamie will rightfully live forever in your hearts.

Alissa, Brandt & Maren - there are no doubts that you three were Jamie’s world & he loved you all so very much. Always remember that and celebrate the amazing individual that he was in your thoughts every day.

My heart aches and mourns his loss. May God bless you all in these difficult times and may His peace be upon you, today and always. 🙏❤️
