Jimmy M. Miller: July 7, 1968 – July 10, 2021



We are devastated to announce the unexpected passing of our beloved Jimmy M. Miller, 53. He was born on July 7, 1968 in the small town of Seguin, Texas, to George H. Miller Sr. and Bertha J. Miller.

The family moved to Oak Harbor, Wash., in 1977. Jimmy graduated with the Oak Harbor High School class of 1986. He had a passion for learning. In 1995, He received a BA in international business and a BA in French (language) from Western Washington University. As computers and the internet became more prevalent, he was bitten by the technology bug. In the summer of 2004, Jimmy received a MS in information management from the University of Washington. In 2007, he received his last degree, MBA — master’s in business administration.

He loved the IT industry; to name a few of his job positions each one more was more challenging then the last. One of his first positions was MIS manager for Space Needle Corp., director IT Services for RealNetworks and title sales/delivery director for Ciber. Jimmy’s last position was sales director for DISYS. He was an advisory board member for the College of Business & Economics at Western Washington University. Also, he was a Pi Kappa Alpha (IIKA). To say “We are proud of our Jimmy” is an understatement. However, out of all his successes in life becoming a father was where he found his most joy. To Natalie, he was “Papa.”

He is survived by wife Mariska; children Heather, 18, Sawyer, 14, and Natalie, 3; his parents George and Bertha Miller; sister Roxann Grocia and family; sister Renee Hinkle and family; brother George H. Miller Jr. and family; and a host of beloved great nieces, great nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.

A memorial service will be held at 1 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 7, 2021 at the Church on The Rock, phone 360-675-3032, 1780 S.E. 4th Ave., Oak Harbor, WA 98277. Pastor Ozell Jackson will officiate the service. A reception will follow the service. The family will have a private closing ceremony prior to the memorial service
