It is with heavy heart that the family must announce the sudden passing of our beloved Jaime Nez Perce at his home in New Rockford, ND on the morning of November 12th, 2021.
Jaime Nez Perce 58, was from White Clay Nation (Gros-Ventre) from Ft.Belknap Indian Community in Ft. Belknap, Mt. Born on September 30th, 1963 to Caroline Nez Perce in Hays, Mt.
Jaime was raised on the Ft. Belknap Indian reservation and moved to Billings, Mt. Where he attended Senior High obtaining his GED at a later time. In 1990 Jaime followed his older sister Cheryl A. Schmidt out to Portland, Or., Where he met up with his childhood and Now Significant other Johnny Bachmeier. Jaime loved working on cars figuring out how to fix them and tinkering around until he got it. Around 2000 Jaime moved out to North Dakote to be with Johnny and finally built their home in New Rockford. He loved his little home and family of 4legged babies. There wasn’t anything Jaime wouldn’t do for those he loved. He was living for his love of those around him and becoming happy and content with his life. Wanting to see smiles on everyone he loved.
Jaime was an amazing Brother, Cousin, Uncle and friend to those who entered his life. There wasn’t a soul he hadn’t made some kind of connection with. He was full of wisdom and courage, everything he had overcome throughout his life. He did not have a bad word towards anyone, always lending an ear to listen or a thought to pass along. He usually told you how it was in his eyes, not holding back for your feelings but knowing the right time to say it. Jaime was always a big part of raising all of his nieces and nephews he was always a big brother type best uncle, I know him being the youngest sibling he was old enough to babysit all us kids. He was a huge presence in everyone’s life.
Jaime suffered from multiple Health issues being diagnosed with renal failure in 2013 having to attend dialysis 3 times a week which brought family out to help and then they found Cancer cells in his liver for which he went through Chemotherapy which brought it into remission later beating Cancer. He was still attending dialysis 3times a week up until his sudden passing.
Jaime Nez Perce is survived by his Significant other Johnny Bachmeier, his brothers/sisters Cheryl A. Schmidt (Douglas Schmidt), Francis Skinner (J’shon), Ina Nez Perce and family, Stewart Nez Perce (Debbie Nez Perce), Neil Skinner, Robyn Roberson and All his Nieces and Nephews, cousins, Relatives and friends who loved him dearly.

I am so sad to hear of Jaime’s death He was one of the first people I met when I started dialysis. I liked to tease him about wearing Bermudas when it was getting cold out. I will miss seeing him in our group. May God bless his family & friends.
