Jamie was a gifted teacher, author, and preacher. He cherished, and was adored by, his wife and two teenage children. Early in his childhood, Jamie was diagnosed with a unique combination of severe learning disabilities. His developmental psychologist told Jamie that he was extraordinarily bright but would need to work twice as hard as other kids. Jamie took these words to heart and relied on determination, faith, discipline, and the help of encouraging parents and teachers to overcome his disabilities. Jamie graduated from the College of Wooster, Ohio and Princeton Theological Seminary and was ordained as a Presbyterian minister. He authored a book, An Uncommon Gift, about his journey overcoming learning disabilities, and became a regular speaker at conferences for the learning disabled, including NILD Conferences.
