To Whom it may Concern,
I have known the sofer Jamie Shear, first as a student and later as a colleague and friend for close to twenty years. I have observed his progress and examined two of his Sifrei Torah in entirety.
Jamie is a fine sofer, I have known him to always deal honestly and with high professional standards. He has excellent working knowledge of halacha, and is a gifted artist and scribe.
I am sure he will fulfill any task he undertakes with honesty and professionalism.
