Jamie Jo McBride (55) of Saratoga Springs NY, died Friday June 7, 2013 after suffering fatal injuries incurred after being struck by a vehicle in Saratoga Springs NY.  

Born in Ithaca NY to James and Virginia McBride, she grew up in Norwich NY, received her bachelor’s from SUNY Cortland, NY and her master's from Bowling Green State University, OH.  She was a Speech Language Pathologist in both Connecticut and Washington State.   

Previously married to Gregory Tardanico of Mukilteo WA, Jamie will be loved and missed by her many friends and family members.

Jamie will most lovingly be remembered as a dedicated and loving mother to two beautiful children and her quiet yet fierce advocacy for the disadvantaged, especially for the autistic, traumatically brain injured and the homeless.  

In lieu of flowers, the family encourages that donations be made to: BenHaven School, 187 Half Mile Road North Haven, CT 06473 or St Paul's Episcopal Church Roof Fund, 591 E. Main St, Springville, NY 14141.
