Jamie grew up in Highland Park, went to Highland Park High School, graduated in 2007. She went to Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario, Canada, spending her freshman year at the International Study Centre, Herstmonceaux Castle, England (ask her about it-it was awesome). She graduated with a BA, then headed to Worsham College of Mortuary Science in Wheeling, IL. She completed her funeral director and embalmer apprenticeship and has been a licensed funeral director at Weinstein & Piser Funeral Home in Wilmette for almost four years. Jamie has been on the YLD Pride Committee for two years and loves it. She has participated in Mensches in Motion, Gesher, and numerous other YLD staples (Big Event yaaass!). She lives in North Center and is gently obsessed with her dog.
