Jami Sears, 45, of Jamestown, was a preschool aide with Clark County Educational Service Center assigned to Miami View Elementary since the 2016-2017 school year.

“Jami Sears was a caring and dedicated educator who touched the lives of her students and their families each and every day,” said Megan Anthony, communications coordinator with Clark County Educational Service Center. “Our thoughts and prayers are with the Sears family, Jami’s friends and her students and colleagues at Miami View.”

Sears was also the Greeneview High School tennis coach. According to Greeneview Athletic’s Facebook page, Sears died due to complications from a severe asthma attack she had earlier last week.

“Very difficult to post the sad news that Coach Jami Sears has passed away due to complications from severe asthma attack she had earlier this week,” the post says. “She was a great role model for our student athletes. Her smile will be missed. Thoughts and prayers are with the Sears family and friends as everyone deals with the loss. Thank you for everything.”

Sears is survived by her husband, two children and other family members.

Sears is described as a loving and devoted wife, mother, daughter and friend to all who knew her, according to her obituary. It goes on to say that she enjoyed collecting, selling and shopping for antiques as well as crafting, traveling and jewelry making.

A celebration of life will be held from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. Friday, April 5, at McColaugh Funeral Home, 826 N. Detroit St. in Xenia.
