James Paul Sazama was born June 29, 1972 in Saint Louis Park, MN to James F. and Vicki L. (Murphy) Sazama. At a young age, Jamie began his love and career with dirt. He owned roll-off and excavating companies. At the time of his death, Jamie had made a well-known name for his company, Custom Earth Inc. He had the belief that a handshake was his trust in others. Jamie was the hardest working, most loving man you’d ever be lucky enough to know. He had a heart of gold and would help anyone that needed it. Jamie was a lover, not a hater. So many children admired and looked up to him, he took them under his wing and would teach anything they wanted to know. Jamie touched so many lives and he will be greatly missed.
Jamie was united in marriage to Loretta Wegscheid on November 21, 2015. Jamie is also survived by his mother Vicki; his granddaughter Mia Johanson and her mother Sammie Hlavac; his sisters Shelly (Brian) Jensen, Karie (Russ) Rigsby, and Nicki (Tony) Matz; his nieces and nephews Colby, Gavin, Caitlyn, Kaylee, and Tristan; aunts and uncles Charlie Silbernagel, Louie Sazama, Mike Sazama, Art (Carol) Sazama, Ardell (Marlin) Jorgenson, Roger (Deb) Sazama, and Cyn Sazama; his furry friends Maggie, Bud, and Babe; along with numerous other family members and friends.
Preceding Jamie in death was his father James Sazama; his son Caleb Sazama; uncle William “Bill” Sazama; aunt Marcella Silbernagel and husband Stanley, Arlene Silbernagel, Shirley Sazama; and furry friends BoDiddle, Nitty Bear, and Jake.
