In 2014, The Center of Excellence – Homeland Security Emergency Management welcomed Jayme Wisecup to its Advisory Board. As a Board member, Jamye supported and helped strengthen the Center’s presence, both online and in person. Jamye was the Program Coordinator/Trainer at Clallam County Sheriff’s Office. Those around in her community felt Jamye’s devotion to emergency/disaster preparedness. Kellie Hale, Program Manager for the Center, said, “Jamye always made me feel welcomed whenever I saw her at meetings or conferences. Whenever I needed help with any of my projects, Jamye was always the first to step in to assist. She was always supportive of my Women in Leadership initiative and was one of the sign up as a mentor for our Leadership Circles.”
To honor Jamye’s memory, the Center will be working with Peninsula College Foundation to establish the Jamye Wisecup Memorial Scholarship/Program Endowment through the College’s Foundation.
Jamye’s efforts to provide her community and others with the knowledge, skills and abilities in areas of all-hazards emergency management resulted in seven (7) Community and Technical Colleges around the state to offer the Homeland Security Emergency Management (HSEM) Certificate and Associate’s Degree Program through the Collaborating College model. She also participated in the Bachelor of Applied Science – HSEM workgroup, one of the first HSEM Bachelor Degree Programs in Washington.
Undersheriff for Clallam County, Ron Cameron recalls his time with Jamye, “Jamye’s commitment to her profession and the things she accomplished in emergency preparedness were known statewide. By having genuine care for her community, near and far, she touched many lives and positively impacted them all. And this love for her neighbors extended well beyond her chosen profession in emergency management. She is also well known to participate in many projects to help those in need and has done so for years. I cannot seem to turn any corner…nor go anywhere and not meet someone that knew Jamye or someone whose life she had touched in some special way. She was a bright light anywhere she went … But, while time and experience can replace the void created by this loss in Clallam County Emergency Management, nothing will make up for the personality and happiness she shared with communities and us across the county.”
Jamye was the heart and soul of emergency management in her community and impacted many peoples’ lives. In addition to her work with emergency management, Jamye served on numerous local non-profit boards and was very active in many community activities. She was very dedicated to helping spread awareness and involvement in emergency management and disaster preparedness. Her dedication to promoting emergency preparedness and her genuine unconditional caring for everyone made her an exceptional woman.
