Jamie Beer

October 3, 1978 — April 26, 2023

Syracuse

 James “Jamie” Martin Beer II, dedicated father of 3, son, brother, and friend to many, passed away unexpectedly on April 26, 2023 at his home in Syracuse, IN.

Jamie entered this world on October 3rd, 1978, missing his father’s birthday by hours, hence why he was named after his dad. He was born into a sports loving family and was a very passionate fan of Notre Dame football, the Chicago Cubs, and the Chicago Bears. Jamie was often the loudest in the cheering section and you rarely ever saw him without his beloved Cubs hat on. Jamie transferred that love of sports into his high school athletic career as an outstanding football player. As he transitioned into life as a parent, he greatly enjoyed coaching his children in various sports and, in more recent years, he served a full 3-year term as Commissioner of the Wawasee Summer League and was a long-standing board member for both this same organization as well as the Syracuse Indiana Parks and Recreation. His many generous volunteer hours were instrumental in maintaining the program, the fields, and in building the new baseball/softball fields that will celebrate their inaugural season in a matter of days, an event he was so looking forward to.

Jamie was a 1997 graduate of Wawasee High School and a lifetime resident of Kosciusko County Indiana. Outside of his aforementioned volunteer work, Jamie’s life revolved around his children and family. In 2021, Jamie became a grandparent to his beloved grandson, Stetson.  For the 18 months they shared together on this earth, they formed an exceedingly strong bond which brought a joy to his life that was evident to everyone who saw them together.

Jamie is survived by his mother, Deborah Beer of Syracuse, IN; his son, Devin (Chelsea) Beer of Goshen, IN; his two daughters, Mackenzie and Morgan Beer, both of Milford, IN; 3 brothers, Jared (Rebecca) Beer of Syracuse, IN; Joseph Beer of Indianapolis, IN; Cameron (Michelle) Beer of Indianapolis, IN; a sister, Candace (Jeffrey) Adams of Wooster, OH; his beloved grandson, Stetson Beer, of Goshen, IN; as well as many nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends.  He was preceded in death by his father, James Beer, as well as his grandparents, Donald and Ruth Beer, and Lois McMillen.

A Life Celebration will take place on Monday, May 1, 2023 from 11:00am-1:00pm at Titus Funeral Home - Owen Chapel located at 1001 S. Huntington Street, Syracuse, IN with the funeral services to follow at 1:00pm. Burial will follow taking place at Milford Cemetery, Milford, IN.  Pastor Billy Hesketh will preside.

In lieu of flowers, the family kindly asks that a memorial donation be made to offset funeral costs and allow his children to lay their father to rest.
