Tammy Jamieson worked for the Town of Silverthorne, CO for 14 years serving for nine years as Director of Recreation and Culture. She was a treasured and respected member of the Town’s management team and in the trails community in Colorado. Tammy left a lasting legacy in the parks, trails and open space features that she created during her tenure. She was admired and respected as a leader by all those she worked with.

Parks, Trails and Open Space Master Plan, the acquisition and construction of the Silverthorne/Dillon Trail Connection, the development of the Blue River Experience, including river restoration, open space purchase and trail construction of the Blue River Trail along with numerous other projects that bettered the lives of Colorado residents and the thousands of tourists that visit the Colorado High Country each year.

Tammy was soft-spoken and humble but extremely effective in transforming the outdoor landscape of her community for the better. Amenities like the Blue River Trail are attributable to her determination, attention to detail and her commitment Tammy will be missed as a professional colleague and as a friend. At this difficult time, our thoughts and prayers go out to the Jamieson family.
