Jamon Lewis Burchett, 23, passed away on November 8, 2020 at his home, after a courageous battle with his illness. He was born in Owensboro, Kentucky on July 23, 1997.
A 2016 graduate of Tell City High School, Jamon was active in football, basketball and baseball for the Marksmen. He was attending college to become an electrician. Jamon enjoyed deer hunting and fishing. He was a fan of the University of Kentucky and the Cincinnati Reds, after his brother converted him from the St. Louis Cardinals.
Jamon was known to know a little bit about everything. He enjoyed figuring out how things worked. He was smart and courageous while being protective over his family and friends. Jamon had a never give up attitude during his illness; fighting to live not so much for himself but for his parents and brother, that he worried and cared for deeply.
