March 21, 2022, 45, Goldsboro –
Jamie William Capps, 45, has placed his trust in his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, crossed the threshold of death to enter into life eternal on Monday morning, March 21, 2022, in the comfort of his home surrounded by the love of his family. Jamie was born in Wayne County on July 26, 1976 to Donna Gray Perry and Gary Capps.
Jamie was a graduate of Mount Olive College. A valued employee of Piedmont Natural Gas for over 23 years, Jamie served as their operations supervisor. He took great pride in the success and regard for the company, as he strived daily to ensure daily tasks run smoothly.
Gaining a foundation in his faith as a member of New Hope Friends Church, Jamie later joined with the congregation of The First Pentecostal Holiness Church where he utilized his talents and skills to the glory of God. The ministries that spoke most to his heart were the ones in which his kids were involved, and he especially enjoyed coaching youth sports.
Marrying the love of his life, Trisha Jackson, on August 7, 1999, the two joined forces to create a home of love and contentment where they raised their two sons in a Christian home. Wherever his children were involved, you could be sure to find Jamie. Family was by far his greatest joy and largest blessing.
Fighting a battle with appendix cancer for 5 years, Jamie experienced the hand of God in his life through numerous miracles on his journey. Always keeping the faith that God would heal him and trusting in God’s perfect plan, Jamie has now left the land of the dying for the land of the living. Death has been swallowed up in victory, and he is reunited with friends and family that went before him, seated at the foot of his Savior.
The family will receive friends on Saturday, March 26, 2022, from 2:30 – 4:00 p.m. at The First Pentecostal Holiness Church followed by a service to celebrate Jamie’s life at 4:00 p.m. in the sanctuary with Pastor Bill Rose and Pastor John Howard officiating. Interment will be held for the family at the Gray Family Cemetery.
Jamie is survived by his wife and best friend, Trisha Jackson Capps; sons, Matt Jackson and wife, Paige and Noah Capps; granddaughter, Presley Jackson; mother, Donna Gray Perry and husband, Marti; father, Gary Capps and wife, Lydia; brother, Jay Capps; special niece (sniece), Abigail Worthington; aunt, Trudy Coker; uncle, Dean Capps; and his mother-in-law and father-in-law, Shirrell and Patricia Jackson.
