Remembering Jamie Adams~

It’s with heavy hearts and sadness that we share some news about one of our CTEC family members. Jamie Adams, a CTEC Advisor for over 13 years, passed away unexpectedly recently. Jamie was a tireless advocate for youth in Clackamas County, touching the lives of hundreds of youth and families. Her quiet strength, compassion, and integrity earned the respect of youth and colleagues alike.

Jamie was a mother to an 8 year old son, wife, and a beloved daughter, sister, and friend. She was a devoted community activist, feminist, and Timbers Fan. She will be deeply missed.

She appreciated each and every one of her relationships with CTEC participants and their families, colleagues, and community members. If you would like to share your condolences, memories, and thoughts about Jamie, you can at . These will be compiled and shared with her family.

Please help us to share this news with others who knew Jamie. You can share this post as you see appropriate.

With deep sadness, CTEC Team.
