Jeffrey “Jeff” Colton Wilson

Had a Heart of Gold -

Jeffrey “Jeff” Colton Wilson, age 28, of Mechanicsburg, and formerly of Camp Hill, passed away on Tuesday, November 14, 2017, following a car accident.  Jeff was born on Friday, December 30, 1988 in Harrisburg to Craig Allen Wilson and Ann M. (Kelly) Wilson.  He is preceded in death by his paternal grandfather, Lloyd Wilson; and his maternal grandparents: Edward and Helen Kelly.

Jeff’s survivors include his mother, Ann M. (Kelly) Wilson and her fiancé, Thomas Seiler, of Schuylkill Haven, PA; his father, Craig Allen Wilson of Camp Hill, PA; his two brothers, Justin Ryan Wilson and his girlfriend, Kylea Smith, of Columbus, OH, Keith Bryan Wilson of Camp Hill, PA; his half-sister, Nicole Wilson and her daughter, Alyssa, of Harrisburg, PA; his paternal grandmother, Doris Wilson of Hershey, PA; his girlfriend, Niki Schmidhamer; his three paternal uncles: Barry Wilson, Randy Getz, Bradley Wilson; and his two maternal uncles: Daniel Kelly, David Kelly.

Jeff attended Cedar Cliff High School and graduated from Schuylkill High School as part of the class of 2007.  He began pursuing his college degree at Columbus State University.  Jeff loved playing soccer, weight lifting, and watching ice hockey, soccer, and football, especially the Philadelphia Eagles.  He enjoyed dressing sharp and showing his classy sense of style.  Jeff was an avid dog lover and just recently traveled after work to celebrate his Labrador retriever, Cody James, 13th birthday.  He treasured the time spent with Cody James and took him on walks every day, which often occurred twice and lasted a mile each time.  Jeff was a true movie buff, loved traveling to the beach, and was passionate about his job at Classic Rock.  His favorite meal was anything BBQ, whether it was chicken, beef, or wings, Jeff loved indulging it all.  He had a heart of gold and would help anyone that asked.  Jeff enjoyed completing projects for his mother from start to finish; just recently, he built an underground dog fence on a large area of her property.  The most important thing to Jeff was his family and they were the center of his life.

Craig & Ann: Karen and I are deeply saddened in hearing of Jeff's passing. It has been years since we have been in contact with Jeff but he has never been forgotten as we often talk of the ole days when we watched him play both soccer and baseball with Eric. Oh, how we were proud parents. We are thinking of you both in these sad times.

I am so sorry for your loss. Please accept my deepest condolences to the family. A scripture that has helped me when I have lost someone is Revelation 21:4. That scripture promises that very soon every cause of suffering, including death, will be done away with. I hope this scripture can give you a measure of comfort during this very difficult time.

We were a close knit group of soccer and baseball parents long, long son Chris Jamieson played on the same teams as Jeff. All those Saturday games and weekday practices we talked and joked about our "boys".
I can not imagine your pain. I lost my brother when he was 20........he died in a car accident.
