Jameson Adair Courtine


March 4, 2019

Jameson Adair Courtine, 9, of Pisgah Forest, a third grade student at Brevard Elementary School, passed away at home after a sudden illness Feb. 27, 2019.

Born Sept. 6, 2009, in Raleigh, he was the loving and much-loved son of Dan and Erica Courtine.

He was known by family, friends and schoolmates for his warm and giving nature, whose blue eyes danced in upside down crescents during ever-ready smiles and laughter.

In addition to the wall of tributes, the third graders posted more tearful messages on a teacher’s Internet app. “I will miss you a whole bunch,” wrote one classmate. “You are the best kid in the school!” Another wrote, “Jameson is an awesome friend. When someone is sad, he helps them. One day I was sad, and then he helped me. So he is my best friend ever.”

He loved the outdoors and all sports, especially soccer, basketball and baseball. Though his family moved into the area just last summer, in the fall he was already playing in a county youth soccer league. This spring he was to play in Little League baseball.

An amazing big brother, he taught Rhys how to solve a Rubik’s cube, how to make a 3-pointer, and patiently taught him how to play chess and a variety of games and puzzles. He also taught him all about American Ninja Warrior and Duke basketball.

He was a bright student, earning top grades in school and reading constantly. He was one of the county library’s best young customers, checking out piles of books monthly.

A member of Brevard Community Church, he was baptized last May, and was often times seen at home reading the Bible by his own choice. He made a big impact on his youth pastor and was selected to begin a special Discovery Class, due to his love of God.

He is survived by his parents, both fifth grade teachers in the Transylvania County School System; brother, Rhys, 8; grandfathers, Raymond Tuers, of Connestee Falls, and Daniel Courtine, of Asheville; two uncles; three aunts; and five cousins.

A service celebrating his life is scheduled for 4 p.m. March 8, 2019, at Brevard Community Church.
