On Wednesday, January 26, 2022, in Charlotte, NC, Jamie Noel Reid, was preparing for his final big game day, surrounded by his loving wife, Reeshemah D. Reid and children. He announced his love for the game and his jersey would take its final rest at the age of fifty-two.
Jamie was born January 12, 1970 to Mary and Thomas Reid, in Huntington, West Virginia. He gained his early education in Cabell County Schools and later became a graduate of Woodrow Wilson High School, class of ’89.
He was extremely passionate about supporting and nurturing his family. His attractive and charismatic spirit, made it easy to connect with others and helping those in need gave him great gratification in serving those he loved. As many of you can agree, Jamie was a man of style, cleanliness and consistency. If you needed something taken care of, he always had a solution or knew a guy. As much as he enjoyed fellowshipping with others, he enjoyed his “me” time just as much. We give thanks to our Lord and Savior for his time with us. Jamie Noel Reid, you are loved by many and will be greatly missed!
The simplest pleasures in life brought great joy to Jamie. His “me” time was mainly enjoyed, relaxing in his Man Cave, after a long day at work. He made the garage his own & decorated it with things that he loved. Since a young child, he’s been a lover of sports. If you were styling any sports paraphernalia (Cleveland Browns, West Virginia or Charlotte Hornets), he would most likely approach you & spark a conversation which would lead to a lifelong friendship. He loved to follow his team whether it’s the draft, off season, preseason or postseason. He would listen to his podcasts while watching ESPN to get his updates. Representing his team whether in clothing, flags, beanies, or car stickers was a vital part of his being. His number one interest was sports and it brought him much excitement & happiness.
Being a great music lover who devoted a portion of his time to, Old School R & B 80s/90s. If he loved a song, then you had no choice but to love the song too. He jammed all the time and everywhere, whether in his car, garage, or his room. He loved, S.O.S band, Isley Brothers, Rance Allen, Clark Sisters, Mary J Blige, and the list goes on. Music brought him much peace and comfort and helped relax him.
In addition to his many interest, he took great pride in his vehicles. Customizing his cars and personalizing them were something that Jamie and his daughter Jada would do together. He loved chrome & putting it on himself and they would compliment each other’s new additions to their vehicles.
Of course, sports, cars and a Man Cave sounds extremely rough and dirty, but Jamie stayed extremely groomed and maintained. Every Sunday, while jamming to his music he’d cut his hair and make himself more handsome, he knew it would drive his wife Reeshemah in love all over again. And, yes, he loved candles & would only ask for them as gifts. They made him very happy!
Jamie was preceded in death by; uncles, Perry Brown, Willie Brown, J.C Brown, Lee Brown and Thomas Brown, aunts; Annie Lou Spratling, Ann Smothers, Evelyn Brooks, Judy Robinson and Jacqueline Reid.
Jamie will be lovingly remembered by loving wife; Reeshemah Reid, children; : Jamie Jr Reid, Kierra Scruggs, Tristan McDowell, Brandi Reid, Tevin McDowell, Jada Reid McDowell and Morgan Reid McDowell, (5) grandchildren, parents; Mrs. Mary and Thomas Reid and brother; Tommy Reid (Vickie) and a host of neices, nephews, cousins and friends.
