Jamie worked closely with his father at Hobbs Auto Sales, Inc. He was also an auctioneer and an avid boater. Every day was an adventure for Jamie. Whether it was riding his bike, skiing behind a boat, camping, or riding on the open road, he lived every moment to the fullest. Outside of his adventures, Jamie’s love for music and the stage was demonstrated through his participation in the praise band at his church, local gigs in the area, or on the stage at community theaters. It has been said that he could turn everything he touched into gold; he had the “Midas Touch”.
Jamie is survived by his children: Camryn, Daniel, and Ryan of the home; parents: Willie James Hobbs and Mary Ann Wright Hobbs of Clinton; sisters: Missy Tart (Kim) and Amy Spell (Gary Turner), both of Clinton, several aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, and nephews.
