James Aydelette obit

James Harold Aydelette Jr., 63, of Douglasville, GA, was taken from us suddenly on Sunday, June 14, 2020, doing what he loved.

“Jamie” Aydelette was born June 2, 1957, the third of four children born to Emily and James Harold Aydelette Sr. of Greensboro, NC. A graduate of Ragsdale High School and East Carolina University, he was married for 38 years to the love of his life, Janis Allen Aydelette.

Associated Agents, the company founded by their father, continued to flourish at the hands of Jamie and his brother Bob. Anyone who ever met Jamie knew that his presence did more than illuminate. A gentleman who never met a stranger, he was a grateful and beloved husband, father, brother, son, uncle and friend. Always a mentor and inspiration, Jamie now has a new mission: To forever watch over the countless lives he touched. He will live on through his daughter, Katie Evelyn Aydelette; son, James Harold “Trey” Aydelette III; extended family, and innumerable friends. Preceded in death by his parents, among those who mourn Jamie’s tragic loss are his loving brothers, Jeff Aydelette (Flora) of Oriental and Robert S. Aydelette (Susan) of Greensboro; sister, Lea Aydelette Schwartz (Bob) of San Antonio; nephews, Zack Aydelette and Robert S. Aydelette Jr.; and nieces, Lauren Aydelette Ward (Andrew) and Jessica Schwartz Graber (Abe).

A celebration of Jamie’s extraordinary life will be held on a date yet to be determined. His family thanks the unspoken angels who came to his aid, as well as the entire staff at Grady Hospital. The family prefers that in honoring Jamie, donations be made to a charity of choice, in lieu of flowers.

Jamie Aydelette embraced life to its fullest and excelled in every undertaking. He left us too soon, but his unique energy will never be lost.
