Louis Joe Jamison, the son of the late William “Bill” Jamison and Rev. Leona Maloney Jamison Webb, was born on August 29th, 1935 in Colleton County. He entered into eternal rest early on November 6th, 2021, at the home of his daughter in Cottageville, South Carolina, where he resided after a brief illness.
The son of a sharecropper, Louis was raised in Islandton, South Carolina, and attended Colleton County schools. He began working in the logging industry as a young adult. He later became the sole business owner of Jamison’s Garage located in Sniders, South Carolina, where he operated as a full-time automotive mechanic for customers all over the Lowcountry until his retirement. He was a long-time pillar in the Sniders Crossroads community for many years and always had a story or joke to tell of his experiences.
On March 22, 1958, he was united in Holy Matrimony to Gertrude Yates, and from this union four children were born. He accepted Jesus Christ as his personal Savior and was a member of Praise Tabernacle Church of Deliverance, serving as a deacon. Deacon Jamison loved serving the Lord.
