Andrew J. Jamerson

February 8th, 2019
Andrew J. Jamerson “Andy”, age 45, of Wakefield, formerly of Wilmington, passed away peacefully with his family at his side on February 7, 2019, following a courageous battle with cancer.

Andrew was born on April 13, 1973, in Malden, MA; he was the loving son of James and Sharon Jamerson. Andrew was raised and educated in Wilmington and a graduate of Wilmington High School with the Class of 1991. Andrew was quite an athlete growing up; in his younger years he played basketball for the Wilmington Recreation department and baseball for Wilmington Little League. Andrew also played for the Wilmington Wildcats High School baseball team, golf team and basketball where he was the captain during his senior year.

Throughout his life, Andrew, enjoyed the outdoors; he looked forward to the many camping trips and hiking and fishing adventures he took with family and friends.

Andrew enjoyed spending time with his father working construction jobs and doing woodworking projects around his home. They also were both mechanically inclined and enjoyed repairing and rebuilding cars and engines together.

Andrew moved to Wakefield in 2002 where he raised his family and became very active in the community. Andrew spent many years involved in youth sports; he was a wonderful coach, the director of youth basketball and President of Wakefield Little League before his illness forced him to step down. Andrew had a passion for coaching and working with kids of all levels of athleticism; he just wanted the kids to go out and have fun.

For many years, Andrew, worked in the retail business; his dynamic personality and gentle way with people made him quite successful in this field. Andrew also had a love of animals especially dogs; he spent several years working as a dog trainer and enjoyed every minute of it.

Throughout his life, Andrew looked out for the “underdog” or the “less fortunate”. Andrew always put others first whether it was his family, friends, neighbors or a perfect stranger he would do what he could to help even when times were tough for him and his illness was progressing; whatever he had he shared with others.

Andrew was known to have a great sense of humor and the ability to make light of any situation. He enjoyed making people laugh and smile; he always wanted those around him to be happy and at ease.

Andrew’s unconditional love and devotion to his family was evident in everything he did. He cherished his role as a husband, son, brother, uncle and especially a dad to his children. Andrew beamed with pride as he spoke of his family; they were his world.

Andrew will be fondly remembered as a “great guy” who left this world a much better place for having been in it. He was kind, thoughtful, caring and most of all very loving towards everyone. Andrew had a heart of gold and will forever be missed by all who knew and loved him.

Andrew was the beloved husband of Rachel L. (Currier) Jamerson, devoted “DAD” of Jacob M., Jason A., Madelynn A. and Abigail M. Jamerson all of Wakefield, cherished son of James R. Jr. and Sharon M. (Dedrick) Jamerson of Wilmington, dear brother of Melissa Tomei & her husband Joseph of Billerica.

  9. Anne Corbett says:

    Dear Jacob and Jason, I am so sorry for your loss. I remember both of you as being so respectful and as such wonderful role models for your classmates at Dolbeare. This is a tribute to both your father and mother, as well as your grandparents. I remember your father picking you up often at school. He would relay to me a funny story you told him of something funny that had happened at school. You knew that he had a wonderful sense of humor. You will remember him with the wonderful memories you created together. Thinking of you both, Anne Corbett, Kindergarten
