1953 - 2016 Obituary Condolences
KILLION, James Edmund Bell "Jeb" In the early morning hours on July 28, 2016 at Mass General Hospital, Jeb passed away surrounded by family. He was 62 years old. Jeb was born November 17, 1953 in Bainbridge, Maryland, the 5th of eight children born to Bernard J. Killion and Rita Bell Killion. He grew up in Milton and Cohassett, MA, where he graduated from High School before attending Curry College in Milton. While at Curry, he majored in Political Science and minored in Business Administration. His interest in politics led him to work for Congressman Joseph P. Kennedy as a political consultant specializing in public relations and fund raising. Jeb later went on to use these skills for the Democratic Party and Warren E. Tolman before landing at FEMA, where he was the Congressional Affairs Specialist for Region1. From an early age Jeb proved to be extremely hard working and grew to be both a kind, generous and loyal man. Jeb always found time to help those in need. He was always interested in NASA and America's Space Program, as well as a diehard Red Sox and Patriots fan. He leaves behind his family, many friends and will be missed very much. A Memorial Mass will be held at the St. Lawrence Church, 774 Boylston St., Chestnut Hill, MA on Tuesday September 27th at 10:00 AM.
