James Jobson-Wagar Obituary

James Michael Chris Jobson-Wagar, 21, of Dexter, NY, passed away on September 5, 2022 at University Hospital in Syracuse, NY, from injuries sustained from an atv accident in Lewis County.  

He was born on December 11, 2000 in Watertown, NY, son of Melody L. Jobson and Michael J. Wagar.

James graduated from General Brown High School in 2018 where he enjoyed playing lacrosse.  He attended BOCES while attending high school and received his heavy equipment certification.

Following school, he worked various jobs in the local area including A Cut Above Landscaping.  He was currently employed by Kings Quarry, in Adams, as a heavy equipment operator.

James loved spending time with family and especially his many friends.  He was fun, crazy, and always had a smile on his face and ready for a good time.  James loved riding 4-wheelers, dirt bikes, side by sides, snowmobiles and anything with an engine that would go fast.  He enjoyed hunting, fishing and he loved snowboarding.  He and his friends traveled all over to snowboard and ride the trails with an atv.  He even built his own road on Galloo Island, known as Wagar Road. 

In keeping with James' loving and generous spirit, the family donated his kidneys so others may live.
