Stan Jamerson

August 1, 1954 — February 8, 2021

Stan Jamerson left us for his eternal home on Monday, February 8, 2021. Stan was born on August 1, 1954 in Carmi, Illinois and spent his youth and graduated from high school in Shenandoah, Iowa. He made his way to Texas in 1972 and met and married the love of his life Paula on May 6, 1974. Stan had a strong work ethic throughout his life, from digging ditches at Mosby Mechanical to leading his men as assistant director of engineering at Good Shepherd Medical Center. He displayed integrity and set an example of character for all who worked with him and for him. He and Paula raised two children, Angela and Sean. He was actively involved in their five grandchildren’s' lives and their activities from the beginning.

Stan was a beautiful example of a life well lived. After a wild and crazy teen and early adulthood, he became a man who loved the Lord and took his walk with Christ very seriously. He won many young men to Christ through his participation in Promise Keepers and by simply living his witness. When his children were growing up you could be sure he was not only in attendance for every one of their events, but also cheering them on and encouraging them and their friends and teammates. Stan was fearless. In his early years it created stories, which are now legends still being told. As an adult his fearlessness was what made him a hero. He always ran toward danger instead of away from it, which resulted in saving countless lives.

“Stan was larger than life.”

Left to cherish his memory, each with their own stories of him include his wife of 46 years, Paula Cullum Jamerson, his daughter Angela Turner and her husband Jason of Kilgore; his son Sean Jamerson and his wife Rebecca of Hallsville; sister-in-law Susan K Cullum Rucker; his five grandchildren Audrey Belle Jamerson of Denton, Dacey Solice of Denton, Jackson Turner of Kilgore, Ethan Jamerson of Hallsville, and Emma Jamerson of Hallsville.

Those waiting for Stan when he entered heaven were his beloved grandmother Audrey Belle Spence, his mother Mary Lou Austin, brother Chris Peters and his wife Jeri, brother-in-law Mike Rucker and precious nephew Alan Rogers.
In the 19 years of Stan's illness, 4 of which he was bed bound and partially paralyzed, he never complained. He accepted his circumstances with grace and dignity. He always had a smile on his face no matter how horrible his pain was. He leaves a giant hole in our world but is a glorious addition to his eternal home. We know he is now running down the streets of gold.
Memorial contributions should be directed to Heartsway Hospice of Longview.

A special thank you to his care team through Heartsway: Tim Crofford, Susan Crane Jackson, Alyson Depey-Reynolds, Tiffany May, James Peoples, Tisha Rushton, and Michele Hurley Ratcliff.

A private family memorial will be held at a later date.
