Jamie was born Sept. 8, 1966, in Yazoo City, Miss. She graduated from Pearl High School in 1984 where she was head cheerleader and attended Mississippi State University, where she graduated with her Bachelor's and Master's degrees in Elementary Education.
Jamie Kelly was a light that burned brightly with joy, optimism, and hope all the days of her life. Across the Meridian area, countless young adults, teens, and children have that light burning brightly in their lives because they were her students - her beloved "Killer Whales." For thirty-one years, her mission was to teach children at West End, Poplar Springs, and Lamar School to love learning, and she was immensely successful at this because she herself was a lover of learning. She will forever be remembered for her unyielding faith and determination to make a difference in the lives of everyone she knew.
Jamie Kelly has been an active member of First Presbyterian Church for 27 years, and she treasured her Church family and the time she got to spend with them. She was involved in Women in Ministry, Vacation Bible School, Sunday School, and other ministries.
