Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute.
Jaime Carol Carrier, 43, left this life on August 15th, 2022. She was welcomed into Heaven by her Step-Father, Bruce Tillman and several Grandparents. Her legacy will be carried on by her surviving family: Mother, Ronda Tillman; Father, James Carrier; Step-Mother, Cindy Carrier; Grandmothers, Velma Carrier and Bonnie Hurlburt; Daughter, Bethany Carrier; Son, Alexander Franklin; Granddaughter, Rayne Carrier; Sisters, Jennifer Carrier, Jessica Fletcher, Andrea Henderson (Ian), Shelbi Hinds (Sam); Brothers, Jon Courtney (Sarah), Chad Tillman (Lauren), Paul Tillman (Christy); 16 Nieces and Nephews…and a partridge in a pear tree.
She lived the last years of her life in Independence, Missouri with her dear love, James Norland and their two kitties, The Fuzz and Miss Priss. Jaime worked in the public sector for all of her career and consistently climbed the ladder as she was a natural leader. Her friends and coworkers spoke very highly of Jaime and said she was a breath of fresh air, always able to brighten a day with a good ole corny joke or just from hearing her infectious laughter. She could quote movies like an encyclopedia, guess a song just by hearing a few bars and when it came to games, you definitely wanted to be on her team because you wouldn’t stand a chance of winning against her. She was as sharp as a tack, quick witted, sarcastic beyond measure, and creative in all facets. She could converse with anyone from strangers to spiritual leaders to sailors. Using analogies, breaking things down, and adding mounds of grace, she could problem solve any issue that came her way. She had the rare ability to listen to anyone without casting judgment, creating a safe place for those around her to be their true selves. Her absence leaves a void that she would want everyone to try to fill with her legacy.
Jaime chose cremation as it was her last chance at a smoking hot body. Fun fact: September 19th is not only her birthday, but also “International Talk Like a Pirate Day”. Ever since learning that, Jaime embraced it with full gusto donning pirate apparel, letting the “Arrrrrggs” fly freely, and retelling every pirate joke she knew to anyone that would listen. We will be celebrating Jaime’s life “pirate style”, on September 19th, at Longview Lake Shelter 13 – 10001 Raytown Rd Kansas City, MO 64134. “Arrive when you can dinner” from 5pm-7pm, Remembrance at 7pm, followed by more laughter and visiting until the cows come home.

I love you guys and am constantly praying for all of the family, Jaime was a awesome person. She was there for me when she didn’t have to be but chose to be a great work mom towards me inside and outside of the workplace. I will forever love her! And I’m constantly praying for the family for strength and healing. May the lord shine down and comfort anyone who loved Jaime. She will be missed beyond measure.

Jaime was a wonderful roommate and friend. She taught me that u have to love yourself before u can love others. She was funny and loved her family. Prayers goes out for her family and loved ones. She may have left us but her memories and stores are going live forever. She has impacted many and left her footprint. She will be missed.

Thaliah Harris says
My thoughts and Prayers are with all of the family. Jamie will truly be missed, she was and will always be a bright shining star.. Jamie always knew how to brighten anyone’s day, if she knew you was having a bad day she mad it her mission to turn it around rather it be with a dad joke, or just some words of encouragement.
Jaime was a outstanding role model, boss & friend!!! She always went out of her way to call even after work hours to see if you were doing okay or if she could do anything to help. I will miss her smiling face each day as I pass her desk… Heaven must of been missing an angel cause that’s the only way her passing makes any kind of sense. My heart breaks for James & the ones she left behind. My prayers and strength are going out to you all.
Lora Lee Wood Follett says
Ronda and family. I am sorry about the loss of your daughter, sister, wife and mother. My heart goes out to all of you. Prayers, hugs and love to you all. It isn’t easy losing a child, God needed another angel and He picked Jamie. We never know why, we do know that we will see our loved ones again.I am here if any of you want to talk. I have walked in the path you are walking and know it is the hardest path you will walk. Know God is our Comforter and He will give you the strength to go through this heartbreak. ? ???????????????
