It is with great sorrow that we write to inform you of the sudden death of James Tremaine Cooper, beloved husband, father, brother, and son. Tremaine was felled by a tree, while working outdoors near his farm in Bluemont, VA.

Tremaine was an internationally-renowned equestrian Cross-Country course designer, building and designing courses from England to New Zealand, and from Florida to Oregon. His jumps were technically challenging and beautifully constructed. Tremaine was a lifelong equestrian himself, and a woodworker. He was an artist with wood.

Tremaine is survived by his wife Marion, his daughter Sadie, and his son James. Also by his parents, his brother Elisha, by countless in-laws, nieces and nephews, cousins, aunts and uncles, friends, and all the animals on his farm.
