On Saturday October 23, 2010, God called Jayson Tyrome Barnes home. Jayson was born on February 20, 1980, to Rodney Barnes and Christine Adside in Miami, FL. Jayson was affectionately known as “Jay Bee” to family and friends. Jayson was the middle child of 5 siblings. On April 27, 2004, he married Tamara White, who survives.
Jayson graduated from Biloxi High School in 1999. He began working at The Men’s Wearhouse in 2002. Jayson started as a Customer Service Associate and worked his way up to Store Manager. Later, Jayson became known as the go-to-man to help struggling stores reach their standards. Jayson finally settled at the Wall Street store in NY, NY. Jayson received several awards showcasing him and his team’s excellent performance and constantly reached the end of the year goals.
Jayson always left an impact on anyone that came in contact with him. He loved to joke and playfully tease his friends and family. Although Men’s Wearhouse was his job, it was really his excuse to always dress like “a million bucks.” He loved surrounding himself with friends, family and good food. He is definitely one of a kind.
He leaves to cherish his loving memory his wife, Tamara Barnes; his 3 sons, Jaydon (6), Jeremiah (3), Joshua (1); his mother, Christine Holbert; his father, Rodney Barnes; his step-father, Oliver Holbert; his brother, Tavartae Barnes; his 2 sisters, Catherine (Samuel) Underwood and Marquita (Alvin) Ricketts; and a host of step siblings, grandparents, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends. All of whom will deeply miss and cherish his witty, loving, caring, charming, and generous spirit.
Visitation will be held on Friday, October 29 from 11 to 12 p.m. until time of service 12 noon at Briscoe-Tonic Funeral Home. Interment will follow Trinity Memorial Gardens.
