I miss you brother....I wish you were still here. I'm doing ok for now... It hasn't been easy dealing with your absence. I think of you all the time and remember everything that happened through all those years. I love you so much and I miss you every day. Rest easy Brother...

Words cannot express the sorrow I felt when I discovered this Guest Book on the internet. I spent two summers at Forward Steps and if it were not for Jamie and his family, I might not have turned my life around. That was 23 years ago. I loved my Forward Steps days so much that I always vowed to move to Colorado. In a few weeks I will be moving to my new home in Salida. My heart goes out to Jeff, Barbara and Nico. The next time I am in Pitkin, I will look over the mountain toward the old camp and think of Jamie.

I was in Scouts with Jaime. Troop 428. As a teen I visted him at his home in the Woodlands many times. There is no finer human being than Jaime. Rest in peace.

I think of Jamie often when I feel troubled and he reminds me that life is full of possibilities. Jamie helped me carry out my dream of designing a solar powered Helipad at the Pajarito Ski Hill for my Eagle Scout Project. Our ski hill now has the only night operational Ski Helipad in all of New Mexico. Jamie helped me with the research and engineering elements and even coordinated an actual helicopter landing during the project. Watching that bird land on the helipad will be one of the coolest and most defining events in my life!

When I initially approached Jamie with my project idea, he was so was so excited to help guide me. Other Scout Leaders thought the project was too complicated and discouraged me from pursuing such an ambitious project, but Jamie believed in my vision and he had the know how and the exact life experiences to help me rig the equipment to be affordable and weather tough. He invited me to hang out with him at the Santa Fe airport so I could interview the Care Flight pilots and crew members. I got to climb aboard a 20k lb aerial crane helicopter and see an actual Russian MIG on site. I feel immense pride in being able to dedicate my Eagle Scout Project to the volunteer ski patrollers on our mountain, especially to my great friend Jamie Butler who mentored me so that my idea could be actualized into a lifesaving tool. I consider it a tremendous honor to be an Eagle Scout alongside such a heroic and generous leader as Jamie. I plan to start training this year to join the Jr Ski Patrol because I want to be able to dedicate my life and my talents towards helping others like Jamie did. I know that Jamie inspired many others in his life and I deeply hope that he knows he inspires me still.

I am so grieved to hear about the loss of this tremendous human being. I worked with Jamie at Parkland, he was an amazing nurse and an insiprational person. I am so sorry for your loss.
