The metro-Detroit community is still hurting following the loss of 97.1 The Ticket radio personality Jamie Samuelsen, who passed away over the weekend at the age of 48 after 19 month battle with colon cancer.
Detroit Lions head coach Matt Patricia called into “The Jamie and Stoney Show” this morning to talk with Mike Stone and share his condolences:
“I WANTED TO CALL IN AND SAY HOW SAD AND SORRY I WAS WHEN I HEARD THE NEWS…..IT HIT ME HARD. JAMIE WAS AN AMAZING PERSON, AND I HAD THE FORTUNATE BLESSING TO HAVE A FEW IN-PERSON INTERACTIONS WITH HIM. JUST A LARGER THAN LIFE PERSONALITY, A GENUINE AND WONDERFUL GUY. YOUR HEART JUST ACHES FOR HIS WIFE AND CHILDREN AND FAMILY, JUST WANTED TO CALL IN.”
“For a guy from California to have such an impact shows what an unbelievable person he was, and his message was something we need to push on. Colonoscopy testing is something people don’t like to talk about, but I think we just need to urge everyone to go out and make sure everything is ok.”
