Jamie Marie Casey
Jamie Marie (Tuk) Casey, 40, and unborn baby girl, passed away at their Chugiak home on Monday morning, June 24, 2019, as a result of a heart attack.

Full of compassion for the outdoors, hiking, gardening, reading, and football, she lived her life to the fullest. Her talent for cooking showed with Jeff’s pant size. She loved going on adventures and taking pictures of her children. Jamie spent summers living out of their camper close to Jeff’s work to keep her family together and their marriage strong. Those who knew Jamie knew she was truly remarkable: beautiful, quiet, kind, gentle, talented, giving, and loving, she touched many lives. She was a caring daughter to her parents, that helped inspire her joys in life, and a sister that adored her little brother.
