James "Jamie" Donald McAlister Jr.


James "Jamie" Donald McAlister Jr., 42, of Taylors, went to be with his Lord and Savior on January 28th, 2013.

Born in Atlanta, GA, the son of Paulette Humphries and the late James Donald McAlister Sr., he is fondly known around the Upstate simply as "Jamie Mac." He was a talented musician and singer who entertained thousands while hosting trivia shows, karaoke, and doing Deejay services for many businesses and private parties throughout the state.

Jamie Mac was full of life and determined to enjoy it. Often seen in the company of his friends or family, Jamie was known on several occasions to jump on stage with other entertainers (often without invitation) and jam with them. His energy was contagious as he made sure that everyone in the room was having a good time. He was always the life of the party and will be dearly missed by many.

Surviving are his mother; his sisters, Kimberly Wynn, Donna Karrer and Debbie McAlister; his brothers, Jeffrey McAlister and Chris Humphries; uncle, Ed "Tinker" Cole; godparents, Ralph and Cheryl Hardeman; and his beloved girlfriend, Kelley Jones.

The family wishes to thank the Green Team with the Hospice of Northeast Georgia.

A memorial service will be held Friday, February 1, 2013, at 12:30 at Mitchell Road Presbyterian Church. Visitation will follow the memorial service.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the Hospice of Northeast Georgia Medical Center Inc., 2150 Limestone Parkway, Suite 222, Gainesville, GA 30501.
