We were very sorry at Route One Publishing to hear of the unexpected death of Jamie Williamson from Topcon Positioning. We worked with Jamie on the first of our series of roundtable discussions and found him both incredibly knowledgeable and amiable to work with. He was immensely respected in the industry, both by his immediate colleagues and by those from other firms. We offer our condolences to his family and friends.

“It is with the heaviest of hearts that we share that Topcon executive vice president, celebrated industry leader, colleague and beloved friend, Jamie Williamson, passed away unexpectedly. Please keep the Williamson family in your thoughts and prayers,” Ray O’Connor, president and CEO.

Jamie K Williamson was loved deeply, respected highly and lived humbly. He passed away unexpectedly on Friday, September 9, 2022, at age 62. Jamie was first and foremost a husband, father, grandfather and brother. 

Jamie was born in Galesburg, Illinois, to Charles Williamson and Eloise (Weidner) Williamson. He graduated from the University of Illinois with a civil engineering degree. He married Susie, in 1983, and they raised a loving family and were always active contributors to the well-being of their friends, neighbours, church and communities.

Jamie is survived by his wife of nearly 39 years, Susie Cree Williamson, his three children, four grandchildren, and four siblings: daughter Emma Barry (Brendan) and their children Conor, Ryann and Leila (Fort Worth, TX); son Alex (Emily) and their son Miles (Antelope, CA); daughter Annie (Danville, CA); sister Jill Johnson and brothers Terry (Renee) and Scott (Cindy) all of Fort Worth, Texas. He was predeceased by his parents and sister Linda Myron (Galesburg, IL).

He was fully dedicated to his work, and rose to be a top executive at Topcon Positioning Systems. His position took him all over the globe where he not only created business successes, but grew friendships and trust wherever he went. He was always kind, generous, encouraging and humble. 

Jamie cherished his family, loved the Lord, honoured his friends and co-workers. A memorial to Jamie’s well-lived life will be held Saturday, October 8, at 1 pm at his home church, Canyon Creek Church, 9015 S. Gale Ridge Road, San Ramon, California.

Livestreaming details will be updated at a later date.
