Jamie S. Rogers, Sr., 52, of McKeesport, passed away on October 8, 2020. Born in McKeesport on September 24, 1968, he was the son of Patricia (Forsyth) Rogers of West Mifflin and the late Bernard Rogers. He was a truck driver for various companies. With Jamie's death, a little piece of each of us has died. He was a caring and compassionate man who would do anything for others. 

A natural-born speaker, Jamie would talk your ear off if you had a conversation with him, especially if your discussion centered on conspiracy theories! Jamie had a big heart and deeply loved his family and friends; there was not a friend or foe who he would not help out in a time of need. Although our hearts are heavy, we embrace that Jamie now joins our beloved dad and his treasured best fur friend Duke.
