Magdalene Gloria Jamsay

January 17, 1937 — June 27, 2024

Denver

Maggie was born in Las Vegas, New Mexico to Felipe and Carolina Chavez (deceased).

She is survived by her beloved husband James (Jim) Jamsay of 62 wonderful years, her brother Peter (Pete) Chavez, and many nieces and nephews. Maggie and Jim had no children.

Maggie was a graduate of Annunciation Catholic High School in Denver. She began a very successful career after 30 years she retired as a high level manager at Mountain Bell Telephone Company & AT&T. 

Maggie helped open the door for women joining the corporate world while encouraging females of all races to begin to break the glass ceiling. She taught catechism at Sacred Heart Church which made a positive impact on the youth as well as the various roles within the church. 

Her volunteerism was extremely diverse; she helped the seniors, mentally challenged, single mothers and their children, the homeless, as well as people that needed a bit of help. Maggie was bilingual which came in handy on a daily basis to assist those in need. Her main goal was to make sure hundreds of people in need were fed a holiday meal and had gifts for their children during the holiday season and she succeeded!

Maggie held various positions with the American Cancer Society holding events to raise awareness and money for research. She was so passionate for the cause that Maggie went to a local car dealer asking the dealership to donate a car for two years in a row. She raffled off the cars and collected a great amount of money for Cancer research. 

Maggie adored the Colorado Mountains. She and Jim have a home in the mountains where they would spend time with family enjoying the outdoors. She was an avid hunter, loved fishing for rainbow trout, and boating. Her additional hobbies were sewing, painting, crafts, cake decorating, baking and cooking. She loved to attend Coors Field to watch her Colorado Rockies. She was very serious about the stats of each game. She would bring a score book while she had her headset on listening for those extra details and we were not to bother her until the 7th inning stretch or any delays.

Maggie was most comfortable when she was surrounded by family, friends, and her best friend and loving husband Jim. She was very specific about how she liked her coffee. It was to be served HOT without cream or sugar plus cookies were a MUST! Her favorite color was pink.

Maggie will be missed dearly by everyone she touched! 

A private committal service will be held for Maggie on Friday, July 26 at 2:30 PM (shelter to be determined) at Fort Logan National Cemetery. While her committal is a private event, we appreciate everyone's support during this time. 

In lieu of flowers, please donate to Collier Hospice.
