Advocate for veterans and minorities
In a career spanning more than 40 years, Jamiel successfully led teams involved in all areas of human resource management from military recruiting to managed services and total talent management. He was active and influential in increasing workforce diversity and in encouraging and supporting the transition of skilled, high-performing veterans from the military to the civilian workforce.
For many years, Jamiel served as a member of the Hoover, Alabama Veterans Committee and was also a member of the Monday Morning Quarterback Club of Birmingham, which raised more than $20 million dollars for Crippled Children’s Foundation and the Children’s Hospital along with other agencies to support less fortunate children in Alabama.
On a personal level, those of us who knew Jamiel will miss him terribly. We will miss his sense of humor, warmth, and intelligence. To say that he was a special man fails. He was an extraordinary man. Those that were fortunate enough to call him friend, knew him to be family first, duty bound, honorable, trustworthy and the consummate gentleman. Our hearts and prayers go out to Jamiel’s family.
Jamiel, you were our friend. We are better off having known you. We love you and miss you. Roll Tide!
