James was born August 17, 1982 in Galveston to Joe Silas Wilson, Sr. and Leticia Aurora Perez Wilson. He was a 2001 graduate of Gulf Coast Christian School in Hitchcock and was employed as a carpenter. James enjoyed many things in life, especially learning. He enjoyed learning from the Discovery Channel, the History Channel, Animal Planet, and the Military Channel and discussing what he learned with his family and friends. He was an excellent carpenter being taught how to read a ruler by his father at an early age, which started him on his quest to build and do wood working. He loved to read and memorize scripture. James loved children. His own nieces and nephews were especially close to him as he always wanted to set a good example for them. His church family was his family and thus he worked faithfully at the church serving in many areas of ministry. He will be missed and forever loved by his family and many friends.
