Jameson Adair Courtine, 9, of Pisgah Forest, a third grade student at Brevard Elementary School, passed away at home after a sudden illness on February 27. Jameson loved the outdoors and all sports, especially soccer, basketball and baseball. He was a bright student, earning top grades in school and reading constantly. He was one of the county library's best young customers, checking out piles of books monthly.  The Jameson Courtine Memorial Service Fund has been created to let Jameson's legacy live on in his community.  The family hopes to build a Ninja Warrior Course in Jameson's honor for kids in the town to enjoy. Donate here.
