Emmet was born on Sept. 15, 1951, to Murphy Sr. and Ora Jamison in Rock Island, where he was a lifelong resident. He was a valued staff member at Rock Island Nursing and Rehabilitation and derived great satisfaction from working with Alzheimer and dementia patients. Among Emmet's many passions were his fascination with cars and his love of music, particularly rhythm and blues. His favorite song, which he was known to frequently sing, was Curtis Mayfield's "Gypsy Woman."
He is survived by his son, James Thomas Hughes, of Turkey; his brother, Murphy Jamison (Berlinda); his sister, Gwendolyn Jamison, and his special, loving friend, Janet Lee, all of Rock Island. He also is survived by his niece, Devona Mallory, Albany, Ga.; and his nephews, Patrick Allen, Berkeley, Calif., and Michael Jamison, Joliet. He was preceded in death by his parents and brother, James Charles.
