His friendship will be truly missed by all. Rest in Peace my friend until we meet again. Rebecca Kelsey <3

    I’m so sorry for the loss of Jaime. It was always wonderful to witness the unique brotherly love between the three of you (especially when you were rocking the rafters together!). That was a blessing. Jamie will always live on through memories shared and that bond that will never be broken.

    My deepest condolences to the Simmons family during this difficult time. My prayers are with you all for peace and comfort. Mike and Paul, I can relate to the shock your feeling and the part of your heart that is ripped away! I too lost my brother in 91.. it’s never the same now .
    I’m so sorry for your loss!

    What a great loss to the Simmons family , My sincere condolences to all of Jamie’s family and friends. And as the oldest brother of 3 boys myself I cannot imagine how deep losing your “little brother” could affect you. But I think that we all know how tight the bond was between the Simmons brothers and even as close as I am with my two younger brothers I cannot share the mutual feeling of having a common love of music the way these three amazingly talented brothers did. I know that their love will continue with Mike and Paulie and that Jamie is on a higher plain now and through the faith of God may we find the strength to carry on our blessed lives. R.I.P.

    It is obvious Jamie touched so many lives in such a positive way. My heart breaks for Angie and Jamie’s children, for Mike and Paul and certainly their Mom and Dad. I know the pain you feel is extreme but please find peace in knowing that Jamie is celebrating in Heaven. He is experiencing what we can’t comprehend at this time but can only look forward to when we join Jamie again some day. God bless your family and give you peace. Love from my family to yours.

    Jamie touched so many lives & was loved by many. The higher power just gained an incredible muscician, father, grandfather, brother & husband. I wish l could have made it to Jamie’s celebration of life but Mike & Paul please remember he lives on through you both. Heaven just got a little louder & gained a heck of a bass player. Love & Prayers.
