OBITUARY

Jamie Ann Schweikert- Cummings

January 27, 1979March 20, 2021

Jamie Ann Schweikert Cummings lost her hard-fought battle with cystic fibrosis on Saturday, March 20, 2021 at the age of 42. She was an incredibly strong, determined, and brave woman, but eventually, cystic fibrosis proved to be insurmountable.

Jamie was born on January 27, 1979 in Broward County, and moved to Jensen Beach in 1988 with her parents James and Patricia Schweikert and her brother Bill. Jamie graduated from MCHS in 1998, IRCC in 2000, and FIU in 2004. She had nearly completed an MS in Epidemiology in 2006, when she was forced to endure a double lung transplant. Jamie suffered 24 minutes of cardiac arrest while she was being hooked up to the heart/lung by-pass machine. As a result, she spent eleven weeks in Jackson Memorial recovering from her transplant. She was forever grateful to the faculty and staff of Felix Williams Elementary, and the Jensen Beach Community for the successful fundraiser that they held for her after she left the hospital.

Jamie married her high school sweetheart, Chris Cummings, in 2006. Although they later divorced, they remained close friends. Jamie excelled in math, loved cows, her dogs Ferguson and Rigby, coffee Coolattas, and doing soduku puzzles.

Jamie was pre-deceased by her mother Pat, who passed away in 2018 from multiple sclerosis. She is survived by her loving and devoted father James Schweikert; brother Bill (Julie) Schweikert, Bill’s children Brittany, Natalie, and William, Julie’s daughter Hollie; former husband Chris Cummings; former father and mother-in-law Ken and Kathy Cummings; former sister-in-law Shannon (Ryan) Grazi, their daughters Abigail and Elizabeth; cousin Leona Kitchings, Leona’s daughter Ashley; boyfriend Steve Zelenick, and Steve’s daughter Payge; and her loyal companion Rigby.

A Celebration of Life will be held on April 10, 2021 from 2:00 to 4:00 pm at Aycock Funeral Home, 950 NE Jensen Beach Boulevard, Jensen Beach, FL 34957. A memorial service will be held at 3:00 pm at the funeral home.

In honor of Jamie and all others awaiting an organ transplant, please consider registering as an organ donor. Donations in Jamie’s name can be made to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, or the Miami Transplant Institute (MTI) Miller School of Medicine-University of Miami.
