About Jameson

More Boring Details

I received my Bacheor of Science in Pharmacy degreee from Ferris State University and my Doctor of Pharmacy degree from the University of Minnesota (the REAL U of M). I have been faculty at Ferris State University since then except for 15 months as a Fulbright lecturer at the University of Zimbabwe in 1987/88. If you are interested in my publications (and who wouldn't be), just search for Jameson JP in There will be one or two new ones in 2008.

My Four Passions

#1 Jesus Christ

I spent the first 25 years of my life trying to be religious. The restrictions of a religious life without the joy of knowing God is the worst of both worlds. I met Jesus Christ at age 25 and have been learning, growing and loving life ever since. You can be an atheist, Hindu, Muslim or Buddhist an get an A on my rotation. One of the lessons Jesus has been teaching me is respect and mercy for the people He loves. I know now that I was designed by God to be in a relationship with Jesus and everything I do in Pharmacy and in life is based that relationship and world view that comes from it. I think it only fair that you know where I am coming from. (and yes I know that is a dangling participle. Deal with it :-))

#2 Family

I have been married for longer than I was not married and I am blessed to be one of those few who are happily married. I have three adult children, two daughters-in-law" and two grandchildren (as of November 2007). If you must see photos Click here

#3 Pharmacy/Education

I have loved teaching for as long as I can remember (which is not as long as it used to be!) I love pharmacy practice mostly as it relates to teaching. Teaching patients, teaching doctors, teaching students. Philosophy of Teaching statements are really in vogue now. I finally forced myself to write down My Teaching Philosophy and I try to follow it. The other thing I love about Pharmacy practice is the opportunity to solve problems. I do my best to pass this problem solving approach on to my students.

#4 Travel

This is an exciting world and one of my goals is to see as much of it as possible.
