Jiles, James

Roman was born in Sofia, Bulgaria on June 15, 1996, and died in Oak Harbor, Wash., on June 11, 2021. Adopted into a loving family, Roman leaves his mother Karen; sister, Laura; aunt Gail; and cousin Marci, all of Whidbey Island.

The Jiles family sends thanks to the many people who have helped Roman along the way, especially neighbors, and friends associated with Ryan’s House. Roman will be remembered with love. He will be greatly missed.

A memorial service will be held 2 p.m. Saturday, July 10 at Whidbey Presbyterian Church, 1148 S.E. 8th Ave., Oak Harbor. In lieu of flowers, please make a contribution in Roman’s name to Ryan’s House, 19777 SR 20, Coupeville, WA 98239.
