On Wednesday, September 25th, SFC Jamison George Lathrop, 42, of Bozrah unexpectedly left this world for the next. He was born in Norwich on October 30th, 1976 and grew up in Bozrah attending Fields Memorial School, where all his children have also attended. After graduating from Norwich Free Academy in 1994, he attended Three Rivers Community College and then UCONN in pursuit of a degree in Natural Resources Wildlife Management Engineering.

December 1st, 1995 Jamison enlisted in the CT Army National Guard, and he loved being a Soldier. From 1995 to 2000 he was in Alpha Battery, 2/192nd Field Artillery as a Traditional Guardsman then transitioned to the Active Guard Reserve (AGR) program as a Recruiter.

Previously, Jamison was involved in Boy Scouts, achieving the rank of Eagle Scout and he formerly volunteered with both the Bozrah and South Windham Volunteer Fire Companies. He liked to think he knew everything and shared his knowledge with everyone he encountered. His children share his love of the outdoors, camping, gardening, music and animals.

Jamison leaves behind his wife Andrea McGuire Lathrop, and their five beautiful, strong, talented children: Hannah McGuire, Jamison Jr, Julia, Abigail and Samantha Lathrop.

Jamison was a great Soldiers who always thought he knew everything. I first met Jameson when we went to AT as a BN with the 2/192 FA. We then met again during our deployment 2008-2009 where we started talking more. He will be dearly missed by our brothers in Arms. Prayers to the Lathrop family. May you find the straight from above. . R.I.P. Till we meet again my friend!

Condolence from John McGuire on October 2nd, 2019 8:59 pm

Jamison you were a awesome husband, father, and brother to me just a great man in general! You were the type of guy that would give you the shirt off his back if you asked, he had an unbeliever amount of patience even having 5 kids that could drive you up a wall if they were having a bad day and being tough as do all kids (I love you kiddos) but Jamison always kept his cool no matter what, he truly was an inspiration to me and everyone that knew him. It just doesn’t seem real to me it feels like a bad dream he was taken from all of us way to soon , I wish I could take all this pain and hurt away from you Andrea and the kids as well it breaks my heart every time I see you and the kids. I just want to pinch myself and wake up on ur couch after we all had dinner and drinks and see him sitting there in his chair watching football or something. I love you Jamison, my brother , my friend, the man that gave my family 5 beautiful , wonderful heathy babies, I know those babies including including myself will cherish each and every moment we’ve had with you for the rest of my days and wait for the day we can be reunited again in the next stage of life. Love you bro,

Condolence from Doug Morgan on October 3rd, 2019 12:33 pm

It is with a heavy heart I learned of Jamison’s recent death. I always considered him as one of the most sincere and hard working young men in this life. I will miss his life force in my world and will always remember him as one best and dependable Senior Patrol Leader in Troop 1 in Bozrah. My condolences go out to his entire family as they experience the loss of his presence in their lives. Our family will keep you all in our thoughts and prayers.

Condolence from Nicholas Tamburrino on October 3rd, 2019 8:48 pm

I was very shocked to hear of Jamison’s passing. The Lathrop’s including their boys shaped my development from boy to man. It was a pleasure having the opportunity to participate in Jamison’s growth during scouting and as a Hough Road neighbor so many years ago. My Prayers and positive thoughts go out to all of you during this incredibly difficult time.

Condolence from Michele Rathbun on October 6th, 2019 10:10 am

Andrea, I am so very sorry for your loss. My heart goes out to you and your children. I have never seen a woman that had such love and respect for her husband like you, your face absolutely lit up anytime Jamison’s name was mentioned. You and your children are in my prayers.
