Jamie James joined Ashford Advisors in 2021, stemming from the loss of a dear family friend. The untimely passing of Jamie’s friend left behind her husband and four little girls, one being a newborn. As he reflected on the tragedy, Jaime said: “I thought how unprepared I could be for the same circumstances. That thought drove me to this company (Ashford Advisors). I saw the ability to help people change the trajectory of their lives by making sound financial decisions.”
Jamie James was born in Jackson, Mississippi. After spending the last 16 years in Provo Utah, in 2021, the James family found their way back to Mississippi, planting roots in Brandon. He currently is working on his Master of Business Administration at Mississippi State University.
Jamie is active in his community. The James family are members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. Jamie serves as a Youth Leader and his wife, Stephanie, is a Sunday School teacher. As a leader amongst his Church, Jamie served a two-year mission from January 2002-2004 in Portugal. One of his favorite memories was being in Portugal during the 2002 World Cup.
Jamie attributes his work ethic, love of God and fellow man to the example that his parents have shared with him over the course of his life. While his parents are his biggest inspiration, Jamie’s proudest achievement was becoming a father. Jamie and his wife married in 2008 and have three children, Julian, Gracie, and Ward.
