As many of us know, Jamie was a remarkable woman. She was beautiful, outgoing, intelligent, and a great friend. Yes, she could get on our nerves at time (lol), but we knew we had to accept the whole package!

Mercedes was very young when her mother died. I (Felix) would like others to document how Jamie impacted their respective lives with their own stories and pictures, so that Mercedes can see how caring and loving Jamie was. A Yahoo forum for those memories and tributes dedicated to Jamie can be found at jamiememories.

Jamie's fellow West Point alumni have also posted eulogies at the web site.

Jamie's obituary can also be found at our local newspaper's web site.
