Obituary for Jim Clouser

Dr. James Clouser, 58, of Dawsonville, passed away on December 12, 2021 following a brief illness. Jim was born on December 11, 1963 in Dubois, Pa, to Charles and Mary (Lombardo) Clouser. He graduated from Central Catholic High School in Dubois in 1982 and was a member of Saint Catherine of Sienna Church throughout his life in DuBois. He received an Associate degree in accounting from Penn State University in the mid 1980s. Jim was a volunteer firefighter for his home town until he moved to Georgia. He moved to Marietta, Georgia in 1990 to attend Life College and School of Chiropractic where he earned his Doctor of Chiropractic degree in 1996. He opened Clouser Chiropractic in downtown Dawsonville in 1997. Jim ran his chiropractic practice until he sold it in 2009. He then started J Clouser Foods and began purchasing Subway restaurants, which was his current venture.

Jim is preceded in death by his father Charles F Clouser.

He is survived by his wife Cindy, daughter Abby and stepson Kyle Bertolone, all of Dawsonville; mother Mary Clouser of DuBois, Pa; sister Mary Theresa (Rick) Lindemuth of Falls Creek, Pa, sister Christine (Don) Hess of Dubois, Pa, brother John Clouser of Surprise, Az and many cousins, nieces and nephews.

Jim loved Dawsonville and enjoyed giving back to the community through both of his businesses throughout the years. He enjoyed target shooting with his stepson Kyle and he loved camping in the North Georgia mountains, but without a doubt his greatest enjoyment was watching his daughter play volleyball for Dawson County High School.

A Celebration of Life Visitation will be held on Sunday, December 19, 2021, from 2:00 – 5:00 p.m. at Bearden Funeral Home.
