James “Jamie” Dean Moore
September 2, 1958 – August 27, 2023
Jamie was a brilliant man who loved to teach. He inspired and encouraged countless patients, families, and peers throughout his life.
He is survived by his wife, Jennifer; sons, Shawn LaHood (Ali), Ryan LaHood (Leena) and Benjamin Dunn (from previous marriage); sisters: Tricia Cassette (Jim), Kathy Kenney, Janet Berding (Alan), Mary Baldacci (John); brother, Bill Moore; uncle, Richard Daniels (Elaine); many in-laws, nieces, and nephews, too many to list. He was predeceased by his parents, JoAnne and Burl Moore.
Jamie was born in Sioux City, Iowa in 1958. With his father being in the military, his family moved to Oklahoma for a few years and then his family returned to Iowa. After graduating from Heelan High School, he attended college in South Dakota and completed his nursing degree in 1979. He was a flight nurse in the Air Force Reserves for several years after finishing school.
Jamie was an ICU nurse in Omaha for many years and eventually relocated to California as a travel nurse. Once in California, he decided to attend film school and changed his career to be a Technical Director in the film industry.
After approximately 10 years working in the industry, Jamie was tired of the politics that went along with that career, so he moved to Hawaii to simplify his life. He was a healer by nature and loved helping people so after a couple of years he returned to California to renew his nursing license.
He moved back to Omaha to be closer to his family and had resumed his friendship with Jennifer Moore, who he had met when she was 18, years earlier. They fell in love and were married in 2010.
His medical career consisted of many years in ICU at various hospitals in Nebraska, Texas, and in California. Upon returning to Omaha, he moved into the hyperbaric unit at Nebraska Medical Center. After leaving the Medical Center several years later he found his true calling in Neurotherapy at a small medical clinic. He then founded Integrated Neurotherapy Center with a Partner and after they decided to part ways, he founded Moore Neurotherapy Inc.
Jamie’s life accomplishments are numerous. He has been a pilot, a nurse, a director, a certified scuba diver, a mountain climber, and loved to travel every chance he could get. He was a musician, not only playing instruments, but recording and building or re-building guitars. He was a gourmet cook, built computers, was a photographer, and was known for his story telling abilities.
Jamie loved and helped raise his sons, Shawn and Ryan. He inspired them to be creative and follow their hearts within their own lives. Both are musicians and Shawn is an accomplished chef. Ryan has embraced photography and camera work/editing.
Accomplishments he was also proud of were his ability to take neurotherapy in new directions, using his medical background in order to truly determine how to help his clients and their families.
Even after his cancer diagnosis, Jamie co-hosted a television show on cancer (Candid Chats on Cancer), continued to work, spoke at conferences on Misophonia, and created an entire new approach using sound frequency to enhance his neurotherapy protocols. He was in the Who’s Who of America 2021 edition, honored for his work with Misophonia.
This world is a lesser place with Jamie Moore not in it. We will be honoring his life during a Memorial Service held at Heafey-Hoffmann-Dworak-Cutler, located at 7805 West Center Road in Omaha, on September 11th, at 11am. Food will be served after the service. His internment will take place with immediate family only, on a later date. There will be live streaming at the service for those who are not able to travel.
