In loving memory and honor of Jamie Gilliam

Jamie Gilliam Tribute Collage

 

Jamie was a colleague, but so much more.  She held many titles, mom, wife, sister, daughter, teacher, principal, mentor, and most importantly, friend.  We were fortunate to call her both a colleague and a friend.

Jamie had an energy and enthusiasm for life that was contagious.   Always a friendly smile and a great sense of humor, she encouraged those around her.  Her passion for children defined her life’s work.  Jamie had just begun her dream job of being the Director of Pupil Personnel for Laurel County Schools.

We will continue to celebrate Jamie’s life and honor her legacy of doing what is best for the children in Laurel County.

Please continue to remember the Gilliam family in your thoughts and prayers.   The Jamie Gilliam Memorial Fund has been set-up at Forcht Bank, 100 First Financial Plaza, London, KY 40741.
