Jerime “J.T.” Jerome Thomas, was born in Tulsa, Oklahoma March 11, 1981 to parents Mary A. Edwards and Gregory B. Thomas. Jerime attended East Central High School and graduated class of 2000.
Jerime was a “dog dad” to “Ivy Thomas”, one of the great loves of his life, besides his love of old school cars and fishing. After high school he pursued his education in the automotive industry. Jerime had a love for car repair and especially loved to work on old school cars. Jerime’s love for car repair led him to a career in the Tire and Lube Department at Wal-Mart where he worked faithfully for over 10+ years. If Jerime wasn’t working on a car you would find him either on the lake fishing or on the grill making some “funky” ribs with his “special” seasoning. Some of Jerime’s most memorable fishing days were on the boat with his dad. He loved to just sit out at lake all day and pull in as many fish as he could and couldn’t wait to come back and exaggerate the story to everyone. He also enjoyed spending Friday evenings with his mother recapping the week.
Jerime lives behind to cherish his memory, his parents Mary Edwards (Tulsa) and Gregory Thomas (Tulsa). His sister’s Bobbie Dudley (Monterrell) of San Diego, Jessica Jones (Tulsa). His fiancé Toyia Butler and children (Tulsa). He was the proud uncle of Xahmari, Sydnei, Monty, and Malcolm Dudley and Jace and Jaxon Jones. He also leaves behind a host of loving aunts and uncles, cousins, extended family and friends. Jerime was preceded in death by his grandmother Jessie Mae Thomas, his aunt Kim Edwards, his uncle Levelle Edwards, brother Richard (Chochey) Edwards.
