Sorry to hear about Jamey.

He was loved by the many people he came into contact with and had a special impact on his students and the athletes he coached.

Please know that you are in our thoughts and prayers during this very difficult time.

With deepest condolences,

The words in the newspaper read, “A Man Without an Enemy,” no truer words were ever spoken. The world is not so kind a place as it once was only a few days ago since we learned of Jamey’s passing. We were so blessed to have had Mr. Jamey Conlin in our children’s lives, this gentle man who was such a tremendous example for each and every one of us, not to mention an exemplary educator and administrator. You have been missed since you left St. Sylvester School Jamey, but the tremendously sad realization is that so many young boys and girls will miss the opportunity to learn by the example you have set. Rest in peace, dear friend, godspeed . . .

I am so very sorry for your loss. To lose someone with so much left to share with the world must be terribly difficult. May you all find comfort in your wonderful memories shared, as well as God’s promise of the resurrection of our loved ones asleep in death. (Daniel 12:2)
Jesus said at John 5:21,28,29: “For just as the Father raises the dead up and makes them alive, so the Son also makes alive whomever he wants to. The hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out.”

Jamey was so much more than the best math teacher; he excelled at being a human being. He set an example for everyone.
Jamey, I will miss you very much. You ran the good race, Coach.

It seems like yesterday that you and your parents moved to Bethlehem and we started playing baseball together. Hard to believe that was 40 years ago. We had so much fun back then and you became a friend through the years. Your mom, dad and you became a part of a very tight knit community in Bethlehem and we had great fun traveling to baseball games and tournaments back when we were kids. You will be missed. I know your up there in heaven catching up with your dad. Thanks!

My condolences to Jamey’s family and friends during this very difficult time.
I was lucky enough to be teaching at St Michael Parish School while Jamey was there doing the same. He knew so well how to reach and teach his students and everyone responded so favorably to his outgoing and winning personality. My granddaughter, Dhira, was so fortunate to be guided by Jamey during “peer ministry” at Central Catholic High School. We will be among so many who will miss him. Rest in peace, Jamey!
