Boo Boo attended school from Head Start to high school in the Cheyenne Eagle Butte School System. He loved to play football and was proud of his accomplishments. He was on the wrestling team all four years, placing 4th in Districts and 3rd in Regionals from 1984 to 1987.

He held numerous jobs in the community: working for Land Opps, the Food Pantry, several construction jobs and volunteering at the Elderly Nutrition Center whenever needed. He also helped chef up on the Chuck Wagon rides. His hobbies included fishing, camping, spending time with family and friends and could grill out like no other. He never went without teasing someone, and will be remembered for that handsome smile.
He has many, many nieces and nephews, and loved every single one of them. They all referred to him as their Uncle “Boo Boo” and was first choice by all to be the babysitter! He has left quite an impression on each of them, as they all have their crazy stories to tell.
Jamie is survived by his children, Zack Thompson, Payton Lawrence and his twins, Julie Ann, and Jamie Allen Jr.; his brother, Dugan; all six of his sisters; his father, Tommy (Arlene) Thompson; his aunt, Terry (Jim) Pearman and his uncle, Kenton (Gloria) Thompson.
He was preceded in death by his grandma, Mary Cloud Eagle Shaving; his mother, Mary “Babe” Cloud Eagle Thompson; uncles, Jimmy & Elmer; aunts, Del and Nancy; his brother, Jesse D Thompson; his grandma, Inez; grandpa, Jerry Thompson and his uncle, Gumbo.
Boo Boo had a special way about him, and was ready to lend a helping hand to any branding, fencing, gathering or any other thing that happened to come up. It’s these traits that will be dearly missed by all his family and friends.
