Obituary for Jamie Douglas Payne


It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Jamie Douglas Payne at his residence in Chelsea, Quebec, on June 1, 2023.

Born in Pointe-Claire, Quebec he spent his childhood and later years transitioning to raising a family and working in Ottawa. He accomplished many feats in the construction community, teaching and managing those eager to learn.

His extravagant and passionate love for family, food, music, and animals will have long-lasting impacts on those who loved him, and his loud laughter and storytelling, mixed with amazing cooking and unmatched music taste will be missed every day.

He leaves behind his father, Glenn, brother and sister Jeremy and Dodie, children Zack, Farley, and Audrey, nephews Brendan and Samuel, and adored grandchildren Eliana and Alfie. Predeceased by Mother Shelley and son Aiden.

In this time of tears and heartache, please remember the importance of sharing whatever time we have with those we love and admire. Tomorrow is a mystery so make decisions for today that will better your life and those around you.

The funeral will be a private ceremony with only close family members present.

Animals have an amazing ability to provide unconditional love and support, and Jamie had the tendency to take in and care for any animal that needed it. Considering this, the family will provide a link to the Ottawa Humane Society if anyone chooses to donate in honour of Jamie Payne.
