Jamie loved the staff at the Higginsville Habilitation Center where he lived for 33 beautiful years. The family thanks them for all the care they have given Jamie.
Jamie was a huge fan of the KC Chiefs and Royals. He was a watch enthusiast and had to wear one every day. Jamie loved motorcycles and mimicking the sound they made as they drove by. His favorite type of movies were always superhero centric. Most of all he cherished time spent with his family. He looked forward to their visits which always meant going to the movies, getting cheese puffcorn, as well as ice cream on the way home. Going on trips was another one of his favorite things. When a visit or trip would end his parting words were always “Be Good. Go home.”
