Jamison “Jamie” Wahlstrom, 26, of rural Alexander, N.D. and Billings, Mont., passed away early Sunday morning, June 4, 2017, of injuries sustained in a car accident near Cartwright, N.D.
Jamison “Jamie” Lloyd Wahlstrom was born to Denise (Dahl) and Craig Wahlstrom on January 13, 1991, at Mercy Medical Center in Williston, N.D.
Jamie attended kindergarten through 7th grade at Alexander Public School and 8th through 12th grade at Watford City High School. He grew up on the family farm and ranch, north of Alexander. As soon as he was old enough to drive a tractor, he was baling and running the hydro-swing. Jamie played baseball, football, and basketball and participated in the Alexander Robotics program and in the Watford City FFA. He loved to hunt deer and pheasant, and camp in sub-zero temps with his friend Sam. He graduated in 2009 and then went on to work for Nabors Drilling and Pioneer Drilling, working on the rigs. Jamison most recently worked for Petroleum Experience out of Williston, N.D. He worked two weeks on, two weeks off, living in Billings, Mont. on his days off, where he enjoyed spending time with the friends who became his second family.
Jamie spent his days off motorcycling, snowboarding, hunting, and traveling with friends. Jamie also loved working on the family farm and ranch whenever he could, helping with cattle, haying, and harvesting. He was a wonderful uncle, spending many days on the farm, riding with his favorite co-pilots, Reese and Porter. His pride and joy was his Cummins diesel pickup. Jamie and his brothers were best friends, talking on the phone almost every day. He loved his friends like brothers and he was a best friend to many. Whenever his buddies opened Snapchat, there was sure to be some killer ones from Jamie. He had an endless supply of memes. Jamison was a fiercely loyal friend, and could always be counted on to bring his signature smile, and of course many jokes and “one-liners.” He was brutally honest, and no one ever had to guess what he was thinking. He lived his life fully, his way. After the day was done, when everyone could have a cold beverage in hand, he could be counted on to keep everyone laughing and be the life of the party. He will be greatly missed by his family, relatives, and friends.
Jamison is survived by his parents, Craig and Denise (Dahl) Wahlstrom of rural Alexander, N.D.; brother, Cameron (Lacy) Wahlstrom and their two children, Reese and Porter of rural Alexander, N.D.; brother, Sheldon (Jenna) Wahlstrom of Estes Park, Colo.; grandparents, Pat Dahl of Mitchell, S.D.; John Wahlstrom of Williston, N.D.; and Katy Wahlstrom of Alexander, N.D.; uncles, Shawn (Cindy) Dahl of Berthoud, Colo. and their sons Mathew and Tim; Rodney Wahlstrom, of rural Alexander and his children Zachary, Kaylee, and Chase (Tiffany) and their children Ricky and Connor; aunts, Maurita Aubrey of Jefferson, Iowa and her children Jordan and Colton, Renae Riggins of Alexander, N.D., and her son JL (Holly) and their children Kennedy and Cannon, and Lynette (Kurt) Stoner of Williston, N.D., and their children Garrett and Abby; cousins, (sons of the late Mark Wahlstrom) Shane (Abrianna) Wahlstrom and daughter Navy, and Quinn Wahlstrom; and his numerous close friends.
