Mr. James Jackson “JJ” Swain, Jr., 64, of Swainsboro, passed away Thursday, May 12, 2022, at Emanuel Medical Center following a brief illness. Memorial service will be private at a later date.

JJ was born February 21, 1958, in Macon, to Karen Tucker Swain and the late James Jackson Swain. He was very talented and skilled in auto body work and painting cars; some referred to him as the best in town. It was a passion of his and he even built cars from scratch. JJ loved being outdoors, enjoying nature. He loved his children and was definitely a “mama’s boy”. JJ was a kind, free-spirited man. He loved the mother of his children, speaking of her his whole life, and they have now been reunited together in Heaven. JJ had a good heart, was outgoing, and would have a conversation with anyone.

Mr. Swain is survived by his mother, Karen Swain of Warner Robins; daughters, Kristy Porter (Roger) of Mogadore, OH, Samantha Swain of Warner Robins, Jamie Owens (Tyler) of Macon, and Angel Usry (Justin) of Bonaire; grandchildren, Kaitlin, Jameson, Amielynn, Allie, Easton, and Liam.
