James William Clement
James William Clement, beloved husband to Jessica, loving father to Souva and Pascal, and dedicated son to Marilyn and Bill, was taken from us too soon on Oct. 15, 2019. He was 36. An Eagle Scout, a graduate of Bishop McGuinness High School, and an alumnus of the University of Oklahoma Aerospace Engineering Program, James moved to Michigan early in his professional career, where he met the love of his life, his wife Jessica. James and Jessica had recently returned to Oklahoma to raise their two young girls.
His family and friends will deeply miss his dry humor, engineering brilliance, remote-controlled vehicle tricks, fireworks display skills, ramp-building talents, sous-vide and grilling expertise, board game prowess, and fun-loving mischief-making.
He is survived by his wife and daughters; his mother, Marilyn; his sisters, Adrienne and Jessica; and many heartbroken aunts, uncles, in-laws, cousins, nieces, nephews, and friends.
A memorial service will be Friday, Nov. 8, 2019, at Matthews Funeral Home Chapel, Edmond, Okla., with the family greeting friends 2-3 p.m. at which time the celebration of life service will begin.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to the Charcot Marie Tooth Research Foundation (CMTRF), http://www.cmtrf.org/inmemoryclement.

Dear Marilyn and family,
I remember James fondly from Troop 21. Very sad to hear about his passing. God is walking with you in your grief. Judy and I will be keeping your family in our prayers especially during Eucharistic adoration, tomorrow. May the love and peace of God surround and comfort all of you.
Mike and Judy Burton
