Brian P. Hamilton (JAM)

    .December 1, 2018 - Brian P. Hamilton began working at JAM in 1980. Since then, virtually no project left our studios that Brian didn't contribute to in some way. He quickly worked his way up from the dubbing and editing room, to become a full-fledged recording engineer and, ultimately, our chief engineer.

    We lost him today after a 3 year battle with cancer. His work ethic never wavered. Throughout all the ups and downs of treatment he bravely kept on working as best he could, and we were glad to have him. Three days ago he was in the studio preparing for a session. Now he's gone.

    His nickname was "Brain", which is how a bakery mis-spelled his name on a birthday cake decades ago. Every studio truly needs a brain to keep it running. We were lucky to have Brian in that capacity at JAM for 38 years. Our condolences to his wife Patti and his three children.

    I am so sad to read this. I loved meeting 'Brain' on my visit to JAM a few years back - his quiet professionalism, sardonic humour, and tolerance of my endless questions. I liked him very much. G

    I just saw this on Facebook and am glad Brian's been remembered here also.

    This is very sad - I was fortunate to meet Brian - the nicest man - when he recorded and mixed many of our jingles in 1990, 1991, and 1992.

    Condolences to his family and the 'JAM family'.

    Been a lot of tributes on the JAM F/B page.

    As Collectors appreciating JAM's work, or especially as purchasers of Personal Cuts,
    we've all heard the "hand" of Brian's expertise as chief engineer in the studio with Jon.

    Sad news.

    Very sad news. Brian was very nice to me when I visited JAM this summer, as he worked methodically in Studio A.

    I wasn't able to find Brian's obituary until recently but thought I would pass it along now.
