Jamie Elam, beloved father and grandfather, of Killeen, Texas passed away on November 23rd after a long battle with heart failure.
Jamie was most proud of and is survived by his daughters, Chelsea Elam, of Houston, and Jessica Sewell, and her husband Grant, of Katy, TX. He is also survived by his devoted brother Jack Elam and wife Leana, of Houston; grandchildren Lillian Grace Sewell and Wesley James Sewell; as well as his loving aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends. He is preceded in death by his parents, Nell and Jack Ray Elam Sr., and sister, Lisa Bohac.
Jamie grew up in Killeen, TX, and later attended Texas A&M University alongside his brother, Jack. He traveled and worked abroad before finally settling in Houston, Texas to work and raise his pride and joy; his daughters, Jessica and Chelsea. Jamie was a doting and loving father who extended that love to all his daughters’ friends. His world revolved around his girls. Years later he was blessed with a beautiful granddaughter, Lilly Grace; followed by his namesake Wesley James. He was so proud to be a grandpa. He settled back down in Killeen and shared his kindness with all who knew him. He did not know a stranger, he was a good neighbor, a loyal friend, and truly cared for all people.
Our family would like to offer our sincere thanks to the doctors, nurses and staff at Seton Hospital who cared for our Dad throughout his long illness.
In lieu of flowers, we ask that you honor his life and legacy by making a donation to the American Heart Association in his name.
