Coverage in the Register-Guard newspaper:

So, there's an article about one of my current projects on the front page of the Register-Guard today (Saturday). You can read it by clicking this link. Here are some quotes:

“But the more I talked about it, the more I realized he’s always been quirky. That’s just something fun, and out of the ordinary, that helps him feel more secure, (knowing that funeral expenses) are taken care of and I won’t have to deal with it when the time comes.” - Kristin Jamison, my beautiful wife

"Jamison understands that some people may find selling ads on a funeral urn to be macabre or in bad taste, and he’s OK with that." - Tim Christie, the articles author

“...but I tell you so when I start talking about cancer you won’t think I’m a jerk. Not that I’m not a jerk — I just don’t want you to think that.” - Aaron Jamison, um... me

I've received some emails today asking how people can "donate" to the Aaron M. Jamison Pre-Memorial Foundation. I should begin by reminding everyone that their donation is NOT tax deductible and the "Foundation" is not a 501C3 or whatever number the government won't give me. Well, the article does mention this web page. There is a button located in the left-hand column for PayPal. By clicking there you can donate via your PayPal account or credit card. (PayPal is one of the safest online financial transactions you can make.) Here's another button:

You can also mail donations, comments and gift cards (if you'd like) to:

Aaron, Kristin & Belle
PO Box 72047
Eugene, OR 97401

Please feel free to make out checks to Kristin Jamison, Jamison, Aaron Jamison or even the Aaron M. Jamison Pre-Memorial Foundation. Please do NOT make checks out to Belle. She's a puppy and does not have a bank account or valid I.D.

If you are interested in purchasing ad space on the urn, please contact me at either or, by phone, at 541.337.4614 and I'd be happy to make you a wonderful sales pitch. The first contract signing is with Terese's Place in Springfield, at the restaurant, on Monday, April 19th at 1:30 pm. Feel free to stop by early and join us for lunch or just to say, "Hello." I'll have more contracts handy in case your business would like to make a commitment at that time, and plenty (actually I'm running low) of bracelets on hand.

I just wanted to say thank you for sharing your story. I have a friend battling cancer and the only thing that keeps me from being too bitter about it is the love of Jesus Christ. It's good to hear someone else putting their faith in Jesus no matter how awful a situation is. Knowing that what ever life troubles we face, God's plan is what's best and will prevail. You're in my prayers.
