Jamie Rose

Jamie Joe Rose, 56, of Gower, MO passed away March 3, 2024.

He was born on August 8, 1967, to James Douglas and Sue Ellen (Gibson) Rose in St. Joseph, MO. He grew up in Gower and attended kindergarten at East Buchanan. The summer following his kindergarten year, the family was in a vehicle accident that led to him spending the next 51 years in a wheelchair. Jamie graduated from Helen Davis school in St. Joseph in 1988. 

Jamie started his adult life at the age of 21 in his apartment in St. Joseph. He loved adventure, fishing, camping, horse showing and was an avid KC Chiefs fan. Jamie was able to live out his bucket list that included going to the Budweiser Stables in St. Louis, taking trips to Branson, MO, Colorado, South Dakota, and Oregon, riding in a “big rig” and riding in a side car on a Harley. He had an amazing sense of humor, never met a stranger and never let his disability stand in his way. Jamie loved music, playing his harmonica and most of all being with his family. 

He attended the adult program at UCP and won medals at the special Olympics.

Jamie was preceded in death by his father Jim Rose.

He is survived by his mother Sue Ellen Rose; sister Kelly Hampton; his brother Sean Rose and wife Debbie; nieces and nephews Courtney Guess Treece, Kassie Guess, Jacki (Rod) DeWinkler, Jenni (Zach)Bestgen and Jake (Molly) Rose; great-nieces and great-nephews Zach Treece, Clay McGary, Kimmy McGary, Peyton DeWinkler and Dorothy Jane Rose; other relatives and many friends.
