  1. I would like to send my deepest sympathies to Jamie’s Family. I met him through Gregg and Denise Waggoner. I will always remember him as a sweet guy. He will be missed. You are all in my prayers.

  2. I only knew of Jamie through the voice of Jenn. She spoke very highly of him and would do anything for Jamie. My thoughts and prayers go out to the Ross family and Jenn’s family. He willl be greatly missed by people who loved him most, but his memory will live within us forever.

  3. Dear Bobbi, Chris, Ashley, Jim Sharon, Jennifer, and family, We met Jaime at your wedding Bobbi and Chris. It was special to see the bond between you and your brother Bobbi. Evida and Allen had their own language when they were little. There are not words to express our sorrow for your loss. Please know you all are in our thoughts and prayers. Love Jane, Dan, Evida and Allen

  4. Jim, Sharron, Bobbi and everyone who was ever blessed to know Jamie, Jamie and I met in kindergarden and grew up together through Cabrillo, Dana and Hawthorne High. I shared many classes with him and more importantly many smiles. He was a wonderful person. And although I hadn’t kept in touch with him as well as I should have, I am deeply sorry to have heard of his passing. He always has held a special place in my childhood memories. I was happy to have shared a few good times with him, Denise and Greg since our high school reunion. He was a wonderful person.

  5. Jim, Sharon, Bobbi, Chris & Ashley, I am at a complete loss for words. Please know I am thinking of your family often & wish I could do something to ease your pain. I didn’t know Jamie well, but I do know the Ross family is a close-knit bunch. I’m sure Jamie made you all very proud. I am so very sorry for your loss.

  6. When I have had a minute over these past 10 days, I have read a brief story or two in book Random Acts of Kindness. It seemed like a way to remember Jamie by learning about kind things people have done for others. While he had many, many fine attributes, his kind and gentle spirit is the one that stands out to me. Looking back, our times with Jamie centered on brief, happy, family events: Grandma’s birthday, Christmas at Concrete, a couple visits to California. Now, two wonderful times are most clear in my memory. The first was in the early 1980’s when we were together at our lake cabin at the Pines on Fort Peck Lake in Montana. He was a little boy, but his love of fishing was already becoming apparent. It’s a big lake with big waves, and we had a small fishing boat, but that didn’t frighten him. He would have fished night and day. My second memory also involves fishing. I’m not sure when this was, but several years later, Jamie and Jeff met us at a lake in Minnesota – Kelly, Scott and their girls, Alan and Terry, John, and the two of us. We had a great time, despite rain, and Jamie fished every time he could. Jamie, was always a gentleman, fun to be with, and thoughtful to everyone. Our lives are enriched by the times we were together. We will carry him in our hearts forever. With Love, Cindy & Tom

  7. Our Deepest sympathy for such a sudden & tragic loss. He was part of the JHO family & we will miss his adventurous stories & contribution.

  8. Sharon, Jim, Bobbie, Chris & Ash, We were so blessed to have Jamie in our lives. We loved him very much and he will live in our hearts forever. Love, Dick,, Nancy, Tim & Jennifer

  9. Our hearts go out to all of Jamie’s family, and of course to Jenn. Though we have known Jenn almost her entire life, we only had the privilege of knowing Jamie for too short of a time. His visit with Jenn to Tokyo was truly memorable and he will live in our hearts forever. We are so deeply sorry for your loss. John and Susan Bothwell

  10. Sharon, Bobbi, & Jim, I am so sorry about your loss. I pray everyday that God gives you all the strength you need during this time. Sharon, you are the most loving mother I have ever known. You could not have been anything greater than the mother you were to James. Bobbi, you were the closest and funnest sister James could possibly have, all of what a sister should aspire to be. He adored you both. James will always and forever hold a peace of my heart. Never will I forget his kind heart and the memories he left with me. They say when someone becomes a part of your life, it is so you can learn and grow and that is exactly what he did for me. I know I will see him again on the day God choses for me. God Bless you all. Betzy Greenberg & Family

  11. please accept my deepest sympathy my thoughts and prayers are with you. may God be with you and give you peace. Denise

  12. I have a fond memory of boxing with Jamie in the front yard when we were supposed to be at school. We hit each other at the same time and knocked each other out! He was a great guy and will be sorely missed. Our prayers are with your family. Adam, Katie(Keller), Riley, Regan, Liam and Reece Laughrey

  13. Bob, Bryan, Edna, Jennifer, and myself wish to express our deepest sympathies in the passing of Jamie. We’ve known Jamie since he was born and what a great guy he was.

He will be missed by all, but never forgotten.

  14. Absolutely my deepest sympathies to the Ross family. I know that he is now in a better place where we can all remember him with a smile on our face. I applaude you for celebrating his life.

  15. My deepest condolences to James’Family. He was such a good kid. I didn’t know him very well, but what I observed of him around the airport was positive. He was very quiet around me, but when I said hi to him, he always knodded his head with his usual point of the index finger. He’ll be missed. aloha oe…bk

  16. My deepest condolences go out to the Ross family. Jamie was a wonderful man. The memories I have of Jaime, are from when we were all kids growing up together. Whether it was at the field, school, or at your house as a child he always brought a smile to our faces. The last memory I have of Jaime is when we all went to the Kenny Chesney concert a couple years ago. The limo ride,the concert, trying to find our limo to get back home…..Now you’re on your neverending limo ride, until we meet again my friend. You’re forever in our hearts!!!

  18. Words can not explain the loss I feel inside now that Jamie has departed. But I see the memories and smile knowing that he was my “little brother”. From playing tackle football in Uncle Jim and Aunt Sharon’s front room, to seeing Jamie’s face when we hit a deer in Montana on a summer road trip. Uncle Jim, Aunt Sharon, Bobbi, Chris & Ash, I am sorry for your loss. I am praying for each of you! All of our love, Jeff, Beth, JJ & Jessy

  20. My depest sympathy Jim, Sharon, Bobbi, Chris and Ash. This was such a sudden loss. I am still in miss beleif. I will always remember the first time I saw Jamie and Bobbi at our 4th of July pool party. The look was do I really have to be here. You both went in the back yard and maybe a hour later you were having a good time just like the other crazy kids. I have known Jamie as a young boy to a young man and I think the boy in him would have been proud of the man he had become, I know I am. Just remember …….. Recall him as often as you wish, A happy memory never wears out. I will miss him but will never forget him………..

  21. Our Love and Prayers to the family. Jamie has always and will always be in our hearts and thoughts. He is our personal angel watching from above. PS to Jamie from aunt Maria: please save me a chair that will allow me to touch the floor with my feet. Love, Hugs & Kisses Jason, Steph, Christopher, Tranell and Aunt Maria

  22. To the Ross Family, I’ve only had the fortune of knowing Jamie for the past two years, but in that brief period it was easy for me to understand what a wonderful and caring human being he was. I’m going to miss Jamie every day, and he will be remembered and with us always — at every barbecue, show, and trip to the golf course.

  37. James Ross (Roscoe) will remain very much alive in my memory. I had the pleasure of meeting Jamie through Clint Tabon and Steve Johnson. In the five short years I knew Roscoe he imprinted so many laughs and great memories, we will miss him forever. This Canadian will see Jamie again one day, where the game run free and the trout strike all day long! Ken Marshall River Lakes, BC Canada / Los Angeles

  38. Jamie and the Ross family have been part of much of my life. From T-ball through soccer, there are some great memories. I send my love and prayers out to all of you. The pleasure I have had having Jamie back in my life these last few years was awesome. So many memories and so many pictures. Jamie you are loved and will always be remembered. Save a two-step for me.

  39. Growing up, I remember saying to Bobbi, “bummer, you share a room with your brother???” Now i realize what a blessing it was for you to have had the opportunity to become so close with Jamie. What fun times you must have had together. Please accept my deepest sympathy. He will be missed.

  40. Dear Ross Family, I am at a loss for words… I am so very sorry for the loss of your son and brother. Jamie was always very friendly and always seemed to have a smile. Please know you are in my thoughts and prayers… Jamie will be greatly missed! May God Bless all of you. Phyllis, Erik, Kaitlyn and Kimberly Hofmeister

  41. Dearest Son – It is nearly a year since you left us. This has been the hardest year of my life. I think of you every minute of every day. You are our “Guardian Angel”. Dad is now with you – that helps me get through the tough times. The Good Lord took the men in my life away but you are both never forgotten. I’ll never forget your quirky grin, your laugh or your touch. You are in my HEART FOREVER. Hugs & Kisses from Mom. Keep watching over us and give Dad a hug from us. Love Mom

  42. Jamie was a huge part of my life growing up and I still find it hard to believe that I am writing this. My friendship with Bobbi led me to spend many hours and days with her family and most of those memories include Jamie. He was the little brother I never had and I am thankful of all the time I spent with him. Jim and Sharon, you should be proud of the man you raised. Bobbi you should know how much he loved and respected you as a sister. We need to remember him always and celebrate his wonderful spirit. My thoughts are with you. Robyn, Jason, Hannah and Holden Elsmore

  43. Sharon & Jim, Bobbi, Chris & Ashley: There are no words to express our sadness for your loss of Jamie. I just know that Jamie is in Heaven and he will be YOUR ANGEL forever. He will be watching, protecting and will always be there when you need him.

  44. When I think of Jamie, I think of Bob cerca 1987 with big permed hair, hoop earings, and several gold chains… head cocked back yelling “JAYMAAY!” As the years past by, whenever I saw Jamie or Bob gave me an update, I’d hear Bob’s voice in my head yelling, “JAYMAAY!” I’ve never really been able to understand why things like this happen. The only thing I’ve learned though the years is that in order to die, you had to have lived. And Jamie lived life fully surrounded by so many people who loved him. So Jim, Sharon, Bob, Chris, Ash, and everyone else, whenever you find yourself missing him and the weight on your chest is heavy… just cock your head back and yell, “JAYMAAY!”” and he’ll be listening. I know that for sure.

  45. You never imagine what an impact a person can have on your life until their gone. I have know Jamie for over 20 years. And thinking back, I have so many childhood and recent memories, Dana school dances, Coach’s, Cowboy Country and even our High School Reunion. Many of the great memories have included Jamie, his smile, his laugh. And although Jamie has gone to a better place, he will always be in our hearts and in our prayers. I am truly sorry for your loss.
