Roger Charles Jamieson

July 14, 1957 to June 1, 2024


With broken hearts, we announce the passing of Roger Jamieson, who departed peacefully on June 1, 2024. Roger was an exuberant and gregarious character, with a boundless talent for engaging with people. He had an enormous capacity for love and was the life of every party. He was a pivotal member of many communities and was liked and respected by an astoundingly broad circle of friends and associates from different walks of life. His wit, hard work, and determination will be sorely missed by all those who were lucky to know him.

Roger was a pillar of the Newfoundland and Labrador tourism industry, starting Kilmory Resort in the early 1990s and growing it into a successful business. He contributed generously of his time and expertise as board president of Hospitality Newfoundland and Labrador and executive committee member of the Canadian Tourism Commission, as well as serving on the board of the Tourism Association of Canada and chairing the NL Tourism Board. Roger was awarded the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal for his dedication in these volunteer pursuits. He was often consulted by those looking for insights on how to grow the industry he believed in so strongly as the future of rural Newfoundland and Labrador.

Roger was a stalwart Liberal, serving as president of his local district association, and standing for nomination in Placentia West-Bellevue. He was perpetually, continually engaged in politics and loved thinking at a deeper level about how things work. Roger worked doggedly on many campaigns, offering boundless energy and expertise. In this part of his life, too, Roger was generous with his time and knowledge in support of those around him, and his contributions had a huge impact.

He leaves behind his beloved wife and best friend, Mary Byrne Jamieson, with whom he shared a deep and exceptional love; his children, Cam and Hope Jamieson, along with their partners; and his sisters Donna, Heather, and Debby, along with their families. Roger was an adoring Poppy to Ethan, Ruth, Margaret, and Teddy, making many joyful memories of time spent together in Swift Current playing on the floor or making them laugh with his trademark jokes. Left to mourn as well are Roger’s stepchildren Mandy and Sean Evans and their partners; grandchildren Gavin, Kailem, Liam, and Rowen; and an enormous number of other family members, friends, and colleagues.

Visitation will be held at Carnell’s Funeral Home at 329 Freshwater Road on Thursday, June 6 and Friday, June 7 from 2:00-4:00 and 7:00-9:00 PM. A celebration of Roger’s life will take place at St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church on June 8 at 11:00 AM, with reception to follow.

Roger’s family wishes to convey their deepest gratitude to the staff at St. Clare’s for providing him, and those supporting him, with exceptional care and compassion during the final weeks of his life. In lieu of flowers, the family kindly requests that donations be made to St. Clare’s Mercy Hospital Auxiliary.

I was saddedened today to hear of Roger’s passing. Roger was Program Director at CKIX Country 99-FM when he hired me in 1987. I admired Roger for his genuineness, kindness and great sense of humour. Even though we lost touch over the years, I will always remember Roger as a friend and a mentor with a heart of gold.

My most sincere condolences to Roger’s family and friends.

sorry for you loss

I was very sorry to hear of Roger’s passing. He was a leader in Newfoundland and Labradors business community and his legacy will live on in the provinces tourism sector. More than that, he was a great guy. He was a pleasure to be around at board of trade or hospitality functions and he’ll be sorely missed. My heartfelt condolences to Mary, his family and all those whose lives he touched.

To Debbie & Family. I am so sorry to hear of Roger’s passing.. I worked with Roger, Debbie & Bas many years ago at Q Radio. He was a pleasure to have known and worked with. My deepest condolences to you all.

We were so sorry and shocked to hear of Roger’s passing.. Our condolences ,to The Jamison Family.. We met in Jr. High, and became friends. He was always very generous with his time, and never looked down on anyone , in spite of hie families notoriety. Years later my wife and kids and I spent a few long week-ends at The Swift Current Resort, and even a couple of times on our own once the boys got older.. Roger always dropped by to welcome us and spend some time with us. We will miss his presence when we return. So long old friend.. See you on the other side!

I have been lucky enough to call Roger “friend” ever since kindergarten. He was as gregarious and as full of energy and fun then as he was right till the end! Having such a big personality, Roger will leave a hole in many people’s lives! My sincere condolences to Mary and his family.

Roger was a high-school friend from PWC 1972. Was a good friend since. He will be missed.

To Rogers family, words cannot come close to describing what this man meant to me. I had the honour of working with him 25 yrs ago as we were still growing Kilmory and to say I learned so much just by watching him with people around him is an understatement. I can only humbly offer my prayers, condolences and sincere message that you find peace in all the memories that only he could bring you.

Mary and Family, please accept our deepest and most sincere condolences on Roger’s passing. Roger was one of the most considerate, thoughtful, fun-loving, and gracious people this world has ever known. His ability to relate to people in whatever their circumstances might be was quite amazing. While involved with the Tourism industry, it was a pleasure to work with him. This Province has indeed lost an extremely amazing person. Roger will be sorely missed by countless people. Fly with the Angles and Rest in Peace, Roger.

Sincere sympathy to all the Jamieson family on the passing of Roger. May your memories of him bring you comfort in the days ahead.

To the Jamieson family,

Scott and I are deeply saddened to hear of Roger’s passing. He was a treasured friend. We’re both grateful to have worked with him during our respective radio careers in the CJYQ & KIXX days. Rog was a true force: if something needed to be done, chances are he was involved and would move and shake the project along. He was also one of those rare people you meet in life that made you feel like you’ve always known them. Our deepest sympathies and much love on your great loss. Godspeed.

Roger Jamieson was a legend in NL Tourism, and indeed in all things Newfoundland and Labrador. I knew him by reputation long before I met him. I have seen him described in many ways in the last few days and they are all wonderful and true. I knew Roger as my friend Mary’s husband and then as my friend as well. You could not be in Roger’s company and not feel like a friend. Roger did many thing well. How he loved his family and was husband to Mary was Roger at his best. . Condolences to Cam and Hope and their families, Sean and Mandy and their families, to Roger’s vast army of friends, family, and admirers. And of course to his beloved, Mary. We are all the better for having known you Roger. We will miss you. Rest easy friend.

Roger and I knew each other many years ago through MUNRadio, and I was very sorry to hear about his passing. I extend my condolences to his family; I’m sure he will be deeply missed as well by all those with whom he worked to improve public life in Newfoundland. May he rest in peace.

So sorry to hear of Roger’s passing. I have pleasant memories of working with him on the Board of Marble Mountain and with Hospitality Newfoundland and Labrador when I lived and worked in Corner Brook. On a visit to Corner Brook a few years ago I ran into him at the Glynmill Inn and we had a great conversation and visit. My sincerest sympathy to all the family.

Sorry to hear of Roger’s passing, my thoughts and prayers are with all family members at this very sad time, GOD bless.

Rest in peace Rodger. Newfoundland will miss you

Sending sincere condolences to Roger’s family members on the passing of your husband, father, grandfather, brother and uncle. I met Roger back in the late 1980’s while I was a Royal Bank employee. His open and warm demeanour drew me to him on our first meeting and I would look forward to his bank visits. Like many others, I have also enjoyed visits to Kilmory and treasure those memories. Donna, and family members, please know you are in the thoughts of many during this difficult time..

Cam, Hope and Family:
I am deeply saddened to hear of your Dad’s passing. He was a wonderful father and he will be deeply missed. We enjoyed a few wonderful visits with your family in Swift Current over the years; and your dad was a wonderful host and a great cook as he had cooked a few delicious meals that we enjoyed together. I hope that your happy memories will keep you going in the days ahead and that you will find peace and comfort. My many thoughts and prayers are with you at this very difficult time. May he Rest in Peace..
Glenda Haynes

My thoughts and prayers are with you as you mourn him and also share the many good memories you have of this fine young man.

So sorry to hear of Roger’s passing. I have not seen him in many years, but we had a great group of friends many years ago, and we always had a good time. He will be missed by many. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends at this most trying time. God bless.

To Roger’s family and all who loved him,
I was saddened to hear of Roger’s untimely passing., my thoughts are with you all. The community of Swift Current will miss you.
Karla Eddy

When I started at CJYQ in the summer of 1979 Roger was working on pre-production for his father’s Christmas album, ‘Don Jamieson Remembers.’ Having no clue about radio I mostly watched and listened in those days but when I did have a question, Roger was always more than happy to answer in a plain and direct language that I was able understand. I never forgot his kindness. In recent years we connected on Facebook a good few times. He sent me a heartfelt note when my brother Paul passed a few years back.
Please accept my deepest condolences. 💐

My family and I extend our deepest condolences to the Jamieson family.
I spent a lot of time with Roger back in the day and at times included the pleasant kind of arguments one could only for, where two people might not agree but would respect each other and each other’s opinion.
I can think of no higher virtue to hold in many discussion and I admired him so deeply for that!
I can only hope and pray that more follow his example and make this world a better place.
Peace and blessings,
Ward Pike and family.

Mary and family , please accept condolences, it was quite a shock to hear of Rogers passing. He made me listen, he made me laugh, he made me a better informed person and usually made my day! Always full of ideas that would make our beautiful province a better, busier place. Hospitality Nl was his greatest passion
He’ll always be remembered
RIP Buddy

Roger was simply the best. He was one of those people who didn’t ask for respect but got it back in spades, including mine. Meeting him was always like meeting an old friend. My condolences to the family.

Deepest condolences to Roger’s family. My late husband Bill and I would meet Roger at different meeting around Nfld and he was always a joy to be around. My thought and prays are with his family at this time.

It is with great sadness I read about the passing of Roger. He was indeed the most hospitable person I ever met in my 40 years of living in Corner Brook , Nfld. My very first attendance at a hospitality’ convention over 30 years ago was one I’ll always remember as Roger welcomed me as a newcomer. My deepest condolences to his family.
Rest in peace Roger; your work here is done; you’ll never be forgotten!

Condolences to the family, he was a good man, gone too soon.

So sad to read of your passing

Roger comes from a line of contributors to NL public life, and made his own signal contribution along with his own family. 100 Rogers would make N L greater than she is. RIP Roger.

I was shocked and saddened to learn of the passing of Roger Jamieson. My condolences to the family and friends who mourn him. Roger hired me at HNL. His belief in me gave me confidence and it was a privilege to work with him. The tourism industry is stronger and better in NL today because of Roger’s dedication and tenacity. May he rest in peace in the solace that he truly did make this a better place.

I was privileged to share the boardroom table at Hospitality Newfoundland and Labrador with Roger many years ago. I know first hand the respect he garnered from the table and beyond, with anyone fortunate enough to enjoy his hardy handshake. He was just a fabulous person to be around, no matter the setting. Such a great loss for us all, but most notably his family. . We will always remember Roger with fondness and we will forever remember our great friend.

Rest in Peace, Roger …..God’s Speed .

Terry Chaffey

We were privileged to know Roger through cousin Mary, and to feast on their hospitality and generosity at Kilmory.
.Roger was writ large in life and his legacy will sustain many through this tragic loss. Our condolences to Mary and family. Marie Corbett and Brenda Brunelle

Roger was a wonderful man and friend. I first met him though a group of kids and adults that used Citizen Band radio in the early 70s. Music was a driving force that lead to aspirations of forming a band. We played one gig. Later we reunited with mutual friends from high school when we attended MUN. Humour and music were a binding force among a wide circle of friends. This group also embraced the great outdoors and we gathered frequently at Woolie’s cabin for “Breakfast by the camp fire”. Those were wonderful days. Later as we grew older we didn’t see each other much but when we did it was always an extended rapid fire exchange of information and gabbing about the good old days.
Roger you will be missed.

David Murphy

Dear Mary, Hope, Cam, and the Jamieson family,
I was deeply saddened to learn of Roger’s passing. We worked together at CJYQ, and my earliest memory of Roger was him cutting commercials in the production room. His happiness and positivity were immediately apparent. He was a true gentleman and brought much joy to those around him during and after work hours. I have especially fond memories of visiting Kilmory Resort in later years, with my family. Roger graciously took us over to Woody Island and later, fishing. His hospitality and the wonderful experiences he helped our family create have been a topic of fond memories for years. Please accept my heartfelt condolences during this difficult time.

Such very sad news to hear. I have known Roger from kindergarten to Grade 11 at PWC. He was gregarious and so full of life. .. just a great guy. He was so proud of his family and very proud Newfoundlander. Every time I drive by his beautiful Swift Current , I think of him. He always came to our PWC reunions. Our 50 th reunion will be this summer. . We will miss you Roger.
Sincere and heart felt condolences to his beloved family ..

To all the families:
Sincere condolences on Roger’s passing.
Growing up nearby in ‘the hood’, we had many common friends, the Jamiesons, Stirlings, O’Deas, and on and on.
Then onto Mun.
He was a true gentleman.
Please accept deepest sympathies from all the Greenes.
May he rest in peace,

Shocked to hear the news of Roger’s passing condolences to his family. I have memories from school and birthday parties he was a great guy a force to be reckoned with rest in peace Roger you did a lot of good

To the Jamieson family. May your many wonderful memories of Roger offer you peace now, and in the days ahead. I first met Roger in 1980 when he was my boss at Q radio in Grand Falls. He was a great guy to work for, possessing a great sense of humor, and he taught me a lot. I can still see his Indianapolis 500 pace car, and watching him chase his dogs Bo and Diddley. In later years I was happy to run into him at Costco, where he was picking up some supplies for the resort. We had a lunch at the cafeteria, and got a chance to reminisce and catch up on what we were doing. I had hoped to travel to see him again at the resort, but had to postpone due to medical reasons. Rest easy Roger.

Heather and Family,
My thoughts are with you as you mourn the loss of Roger and celebrate his life.

Fond memories of our childhood friendship. Rest in peace

I was very saddened to hear this news today! Roger was a friend to all! Always enjoyed my conversations with him! He leaves a large void in our province 💔. Sending my deepest condolences to Mary, Hope, Cam, Glenna and their families 💕

Mary, Hope, Cam and the Jamieson family,, our thoughts are with you in this sad time. We were blessed to have known Roger for many years, and shared so many wonderful times together over those years. The cabin on Sound Island was a very special place for him, and we enjoyed our times together there. In 2003 he, Bill Lee and I shingled the roof, and in 2004 Roger and I built a new wharf to replace the original one that ice relocated to the cove.. Roger was a joy to be with, and we all will miss him dearly. Rest in Peace, my old friend.

To Cam, Hope & Mary, so very sorry to hear of Roger’s passing . Have known him since he showed up in Lewisporte in his cool Mustang ( Indy 500 Pace Car) about 1979-80. I have many good memories.…. He was a great man & will be missed .

Brenda Silk

To the Jameison family: Please accept my deepest sympathy and sincere condolences on Roger’s untimely passing . I knew him years ago in 1980ties , when his first wife, Janice Haynes Jameison and I worked together at Xerox in St John’s and we had many wild company parties there, so it was inevitable Roger n I would meet. We always had great laughs and running banter and he was a person one would never forget. When I left Xerox he wished me luck on my new adventure as he called it, and I since have not looked back. I am shocked to read about this today and wish I was going to be there to attend his wake. I will not be able to so I send my heartiest best wishes to his family and pray that God will love him as you all did, n pray that God Will Bless you all in your hour of sorrow..
Roger was the best kind and was always fun to be around as was Janice.
God speed.
G. Franklyn Hiscock Halifax, N. S.

In heartfelt sympathy and prayer to the Jamieson family, and extended family & friends, in your time of grief and loss. Take comfort in your cherished memories and keep Roger’s memory alive in your minds and hearts. The province has also lost a salt of the earth son and tourism ambassador. His love of this province and his countless contributions to growing this little piece of Heaven will continue to remain part of his legacy.
I met Roger many years ago as a resident tourist during many staycations spent at Kilmory Resort in Swift Current. He was a kind and gentle man and he was always very welcoming. My family anxiously looked forward to spending time there in summer & winter. I have fond memories of a few adventures Roger took us on. We went on his boat to Woody Island which never disappointed. I remember him showing us skidoo trails at Piper’s Hole Park.. My two children who are now adults fondly recall those everlasting memories Roger helped create and the amazing man who was so kind and friendly.
He earned his wings and a peaceful rest. May his gentle soul rest in peace. God bless.

“Wherever a beautiful soul has been, a trail of beautiful memories remain.”

So sorry for your loss. To the Jamieson family and all of us who knew him. He was always a good friend, very determined and compassionate. Rest in peace Roger ♥️

I am so sorry to hear of Roger’s death, a good man taken too soon. May he rest in peace. My condolences to the family during this difficult time.

Oh the stories! Roger was a force, with unmatched dedication to the family name and this place we call home. He was caring and loving and called it as he saw it. Fond memories of working together, doing business together, and best of all, just being friends. Sincere condolences to all he loved and all who love Roger.

So sorry to hear of Roger’s passing. He was a lovely man and I always enjoyed my conversations with him over the years.

t is with great sadness I just learned of Roger’s passing. I am shocked and saddened as I have been a friend of Roger since we were 4 years old and attended each other’s birthday parties when we were kids and played together. We attended the same schools from elementary to junior high to high school. I saw Roger at various tourism events over the years and was looking forward to seeing him at the PWC 50 high school reunion in St. John’s late August. I am truly sad and at a loss.

A great man…and fun too. My condolences

So sorry to hear of Rogers passing. Roger was a great man and loved by all. When I would go home for a holiday it wohld always be so nice to meet up with Roger. Be assured our thoughts and prayers are with ye all at this sad time.

Roger was a fine fellow. Met him first as a teen and then later in university at MUN Radio, where he was part of a volunteer team from all over the province that did some great work while having a heap of fun doing it (including the 1977 Canada Games Radio Project). When we would bump into each other over the years it was always a hearty hi, followed by a thoughtful chat, punctuated by his unmistakable laugh.
Since the sad news broke, many of his former MUN Radio friends (now spread all across the country) have been chatting over email, and we all share in the same thought. Roger was a top man, fondly remembered, and gone way too soon.
Condolences to the family.

We are so broken hearted to hear of Roger’s passing, he was such a kind, caring friend. We worked together back in the CJYQ Radio days and would sometimes hang out together weekends. Spent some lovely times at Kilmory Resort where he would come to our chalet and reminisce about the good old days in radio. Our deepest sympathy to his family,. He will be truly missed. Rest in peace Roger .

I’ve known Roger for many years and will truly miss our chats whenever we saw each other. He had an intelligent, vibrant and funny personality that always meant an insightful conversation. My sincere condolences to the Jamieson family on your loss. Rest in Peace Roger.

Mary, Hope, Cam, grandkids and all the family,
So sorry to hear of your loss. I know the memories you have built over the years will bring a smile too as time goes on. The memories stay and you will have them forever.
My sincere condolences to you all.
Take care.

Mary, Cam, Hope and family,
The personality that filled the room with positive energy and drive that enveloped all those who knew Roger will be empty without him. NL Tourism grew and prospered over the years with Roger’s leadership and years of commitment. I always knew that I and others could rely on Roger’s total support and guidance as we joined him and followed in his footsteps doing our part to continue his industry advocacy. We have all lost a good friend.
Mary and family , my deepest condolences at this time. May your love and memories of Roger continue to bring joy to your hearts as you move forward through your loss and the difficult days ahead.

So sorry to hear of Rogers passing. Condolences to the family

Mary, Cam, Hope and family.
Sincerest condolences on the loss of Roger. Our entire tourism community is mourning his loss. Roger was a big part of all of us, his legacy will live on in everything good this province has to offer. Know we are here for you all during this difficult time. I feel Roger would say, “don’t mourn for me, but celebrate who I was and the wonderful memories I left behind”. We’ll try to do just that.
Sincerely, Kelly

Oh Mary, I was sonshocked to see the FaceBook announcment. Roger was a one in a million and will be greatly missed by the whole province on many levels. My heart goes out to you and your family. My sincerest condolences to you all.


Sincerest condolences to you and your extended family. Take comfort in all your wonderful memories to aid you in the days ahead.
