Jamar R. Wilson

May 29, 1979 ~ March 3, 2021 (age 41)


Jamar R. Wilson was born on May 29, 1979, to Arlie and Evelyn Wilson in Fort Wayne, Indiana. He departed this life to rest in his eternal home on March 3, 2021 at his home in Indianapolis, Indiana. 


Jamar was baptized at Zion Lutheran Evangelical Church in Fort Wayne. He attended and graduated from Concordia Lutheran High School in 1997.


Growing up as a child, Jamar enjoyed everything to do with being outdoors. He loved hunting and fishing with his father starting at a young age. Jamar loved traveling to Alabama to his grandmother Luvada Hogue’s house to see cousins and play in his grandmother's country pastures, just to be outside. He would always love going to his great aunt Malinda Jackson’s home to play with cousins outside after school and during the summer.


Jamar was always excellent at building and fixing things. He loved working on his cars himself and helping others with their car audio systems. Jamar was even a self-trained barber that cut his cousin's hair in Indianapolis. 


Jamar could do anything he put his mind to. Jamar had a giving heart and would help you with anything needed. Above all, Jamar was a loving son to Evelyn and Arlie. He held a special place in his father’s heart.  Yet, he was a mama’s boy and always spoke to his mother every day to make sure she was ok and safe while living in Indianapolis until the day he departed to be with the Lord.


He was preceded in death by his grandmothers, Luvada Hogue and Doretha Hurt.


The memories of Jamar will forever be cherished by his parents,  Arlie and Evelyn Wilson of Fort Wayne, IN; his brother, Jamie Wilson (Kimberly) of Fort Worth, TX; his nieces, Madison and Elizabeth Wilson of Fort Worth, TX; aunts, Fay Hogue, Genie Hogue, and Shirley Banks (Theodore) all of Uniontown, AL, Annie Ewing (Willie) of York, AL, and Eleanor Davis (Anthony) of Birmingham, AL; uncles, Newett Hogue (Bertha) of Hueytown, AL, Joseph Hogue of Uniontown, AL, Lawrence Wilson, and Kenneth Wilson both of Fort Wayne, IN, and John Wilson of Toledo, OH, along with a host of cousins.


John 14:1-3

“Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me, My Father’s house has many rooms; if that were not so , would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am.”
