William Carroll Jamison

William “Bill” Jamison, 41, a lifelong native of Sylva, NC passed away on Sunday April 14, 2019. He is survived by his loving wife Laci Jamison whom he married June 19, 2004. He is the son of John Jamison and Lynette Ginn.

Bill graduated Smoky Mountain High School in 1997 and went on to study Criminal Justice at Western Carolina University where he graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in 2003. He loved being outdoors and working his mowing business with his dad, brother and many special people who worked for him. Nothing gave him more joy than spending time with his wife and daughters, whether it was teaching softball or going on trips to Hilton Head Island, Santa’s Land and The Great Wolf Lodge.

Bill had a special group of lifelong friends that he would play golf, ping pong, playstation, fantasy football, the occasional poker game and they could also be found playing basketball in the driveway till the early hours of morning.

He was a great husband, father, son, brother and friend. He had a great smile and personality that would light up any room. But most of all Bill was a great Christian man.

In addition to his wife and parents, Bill is survived by two daughters Ayla and Taylor Jamison; brother Wes (Myranda) Jamison; sister Brynn (JT) Throgmorton; Father-in-law Derrick Coggins; Mother-in-law Carolyn Coggins; Brother-in-law Travis Coggins; Paternal grandmother Joan Jamison; Nephews, Sawyer and RJ (Roscoe) Jamison; Nieces Addison Throgmorton, Maggie Jamison, Jaslynn Throgmorton and Mabel Jamison; several loving aunts, uncles, cousins and friends also survive.

Bill was preceded in death by paternal grandfather Vernon Jamison; maternal grandparents Joe and Marilou Ginn and grand father-in-law AB Shuler.

Funeral Services will be held Thursday April 18th, 2019 at 2:30 pm at East Sylva Baptist Church with Dr. J.D. Grant, Rev. Reed Benson and Rev. Charles Dean officiating. Burial will follow the service at Fairview Memorial Gardens.

To the Family, so sorry for your loss. Hope you will be comforted in knowing that William has the prospect of being resurrected, healthy (in the flesh), to Paradise Earth just as Jehovah God has promised. In fact , the vast majority will enjoy everlasting life right here on earth as God had intended from the beginning. God's Kingdom will do this under the rule of Jesus Christ.
