Jay "James Jeffery" Cameron, 45, of Grandville, Michigan, passed away on November 4, 2023. He was born on June 14, 1978, in Benton Harbor, Michigan, Berrien County. Jay, as he preferred to be called, was an amazing man with the largest heart of anyone we have ever known. He had a way of fitting in with anyone, anywhere, and at any place. He could make you smile when you were sad, laugh when you were crying, and always make your day better when things were bad. He always put others before himself, no matter what the cost. If you were in his life, you were a blessed person.
Jay is survived by his beloved wife at heart, Crystal Headley, his loving daughter and son-in-law Bree & Vince McGinnis, daughters Julie McGinnis and Cam, and his cherished granddaughters Eva, Cora, and Yazzy. He will also be deeply missed by his daughter-in-law Carolin and son Zach Headley. Jay is remembered by his mother, Bev Clark, his brother Randy, and his father, Mike Duis. He will be forever in the hearts of his brothers Joe, Eric, and Keith, and his sister Jodee. Jay's memory will also be treasured by his mother and father, Bobbie and Jim Cameron, his brother and sister-in-law Michael and Laura Cameron, his sister Rachel Cameron, and his aunts Becky, Cheryl, and Renie. He was preceded in death by his grandparents, Grandma and Grandpa Wright, and his sister Nikki Darnell. Jay also leaves behind numerous sons, daughters, other grandchildren, nieces, nephews, cousins, aunts and uncles.
Jay was an Army veteran, having served his country with honor and dedication. He proudly associated himself with the Army Vet community.
In his career, Jay worked as an over the road semi driver and also as a gun counter associate at Cabela's. He was known for his strong work ethic and his commitment to his profession.
Jay loved to ride his motorcycles and spend time with his friends and family. He found joy in the open road and the wind in his hair. He will be remembered for his adventurous spirit and zest for life.
A celebration of life will be held in the spring of 2024 to honor Jay's memory and the impact he had on the lives of those who knew him.
Jay Cameron touched the lives of many, and his absence will be deeply felt. He will forever be remembered for his kindness, generosity, and unwavering love for those around him. May his soul rest in eternal peace.
