James L. Jones

May 30, 1954November 12, 2021

James Linton “Jamie” Jones – Born May 30, 1954, left this earth to be with his Father in Heaven on Nov. 12, 2021. James is survived by his long-term companion, Joanna Jones, and numerous cousins and friends. He was pre-deceased by his father, James T. Jones, his mother, Mildred Ramsey Jones, cousins Eleanor Anne Blaylock, Elaine Blaylock Chandler and Elizabeth Turman; aunts Lucille Beaupre, Mary Ann Bryant and Jeanette Jones Rudine.

James was a life-long Dallas resident, having graduated in the 1972 class of Thomas Jefferson High School and later received his degree from Dallas Bible College. James’ passions, from an early age, were biblical studies, genealogy and the history of both the Civil War and World War II. He also had a profound interest in United States politics and the Texas Rangers. James used his biblical degree and his love of the Bible to become a long-term Sunday School teacher at Walnut Hill Methodist Church, where he was a loyal member for most of his life. He retired from his job at a Christian book store in 1997, as he began his long term battle with Multiple Myeloma that lasted over 24 years and ended with his death on Nov. 12th.

Jamie was always kind and caring with a loving heart and a quick wit. “Jamie” will be missed by all.
