It is with heartfelt sadness that the family of Jamie Lynn Mobley announces her passing on Aug. 18, 2023, as a result of complications from ALS. Jamie left this world peacefully at her home in New Orleans with her husband, Chris Cox, and sister, Jennifer Cheveresan, by her side. Jamie was a dedicated and reliable contributor to causes larger than herself, whether it was as a public affairs specialist with the Bureau of Land Management; USDA’s Rural Development division; the Army Corps of Engineers; the New Orleans and Denver VA medical centers or her volunteer efforts to help veterans through Alfred E. Flynn Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 8973 (NOLA VFW) in New Orleans. Jamie always threw her considerable knowledge, experience and curiosity into her profession, passions and life. More than that, she genuinely cared about the people she surrounded herself with and thought of her friends as chosen family. She joined the army shortly after high school to become a tracked vehicle repairer – basically a tank mechanic. She became familiar with getting her hands dirty in the garage watching her father, Larry Allen, so turning wrenches on military vehicles was in her comfort zone. Jamie was so proud of her experience as a soldier. She was also proud to be the daughter of Jane Mobley and sister to Ginger Nolan – who both live in Cincinnati – and Jennifer Cheveresan who lives with her husband Edward in Clearwater, Fla. Her husband, Chris Cox; nephew, Jack; and niece, Skyelah, rounded out her love list. She travelled the world and had addresses in Italy and many other places over the years, learned to scuba dive in the Mediterranean Sea and started her life-long love of roller derby with her teammates in Alaska. Jamie moved to New Orleans in 2016 where she met her best friend and eventual husband, Chris. Together, they made a home where she could continue her life-long learning journey at Loyola University. She earned her bachelor’s degree at Kansas State University and her master’s in marketing and communication from Loyola during the pandemic. Jamie has joined her father, Larry, and her son, Duffy Macke, who left this world before her. Her ashes will be delivered to the sea by her husband and family later this year. For those who cannot attend Jamie’s remembrance ceremony at NOLA VFW (531 Lyons Street in New Orleans, La.) Friday, Sept. 1 at 6 p.m., you are invited to participate via Zoom – meeting ID: 878 748 1220, passcode: ZqWG60.
Preferred donations should be made in her name to the Team Gleason Foundation or NOLA VFW to support those causes that were important to her. Family and friends may view and sign the online guestbook at www.mothefunerals.com.
