  1. Jan was a wonderful co-worker as well as a fantastic, caring person. I remember I was intimidated by Jan when I first met him many years ago in a business relationship. After working with Jan only a few short days, I discovered he was just a ‘big teddy bear’ and had a heart of gold. Jan will be sorely missed by all that knew him! Jan, continue to watch over all of us as we continue our journey on this earth! We love you!

  2. Phyllis, Kelly, Clay and Georgia,
    I am so sorry for your loss. You are all in my prayers. I always viewed Jan as the big brother I didn’t have. He was always a lot of fun, whether we were all bird watching, cooking when we were all at Mustang Island, and playing games. We will all carry him with us in our hearts. Love, Wanda

  3. Georgia, Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this time. Jan was a great friend to us and my family and will sorely be missed. Jan was indeed a caring person and always eager to help those in need. May God Bless you.

    I’m so glad I stop to visit.
    Love in Him,

  13. Jan was truly one of kind. It was rare to get that smile from him, but my little ones could always bring it out. You will be missed and never forgotten. My deepest sympathies are extended to the family.

  14. My thoughts – prayers are with you at this difficult time. I worked with Jan @ First National for 5 yrs. I also was intimidated by Jan @ first, but once you peeled back his layers you got to know the wonderful man he truly was. The world just lost a one ‘GREAT TEDDY BEAR’.

  15. Jan was such a wonderful friend. When my daughters were young he took us on a Christmas light tour which was hysterical. Another time my youngest wanted a garden, so he built her a raised garden. We had great times and wonderful memories. These last several years I only saw him or talked to him on the phone a few times. He was true blue and you could always count on that. My family and I love Jan and will miss him. Our condolences to his family.

  16. Jan gave me my first loan when I was 17yrs old…and many more followed. He tried to talk me out of buying a boat I had my mind set on. I sure wish I would have taken his advice, but I didnt and paid for it. What a great man he was. I just lost my step dad, Bill Meeks,a few weeks ago. He considered Jan a good friend and always talked so highly of him. God Bless you.

  17. Georgia – My heart is heavy for you and your family. Please know that my prayers – thoughts are with you.

  18. Jan was a life long friend that made a difference for so many. My sincere thoughts and prayers to his wife and family.

  19. Dear Dozier family, I am so sorry for your sudden loss. Jan was a great guy and was always ready to give advice to who ever needed it. It will be hard to go into that bank now, look through the glass window into his office and not see him wave to say HI.

  20. Jan was simply the best I’ve known him all my working life he was a friend and then a banker I will miss him

  34. Georgia, Kelly, and Clay – I am so sorry for your loss. Jan was a great guy and quite a character. We had a speech class together at A-M and he did an impromptu speech about his sneakers. It was hilarious! When I took my parents into the bank he always made it a point to come talk to us. Our prayers are with you.

  40. We offer our sympathy to all of you who loved him, who loved his dry sense of humor, who loved his appreciation of Texas, and who loved to listen to his adventurous (sometimes exaggerated) hunting stories. Jan was our banker for many years before we moved to Victoria thirteen years ago. We’ve kept in touch through our friend, Georgia, and were sad to hear of his passing.

  41. What an honor and priviledge to have know this man and have as a friend. Jan was without a doubt the most caring and empathic man. He ‘tried’ to be so tuff on the outside, but had the HUGEST heart God ever gave a man. He touched my life many times…lost a dear friend, he understood and felt my paiin, endured and faced controversy, he was there. Never judging, always unconditional! What we have lost, God has gained. My thoughts and prayers are with those left behind who will forever love and miss him! Kathy Culbreth

  42. I remember a great ,fun friend ..always a great joy to be around ! God bless and keep the family and all his friends in this time of grief … love ya man

  43. Our thoughts and prayers are with you tonight and in the days to come. May the Lord sustain and comfort you. Our deepest sympathy to each of you.

  44. Jan always helped me in at the First National Bank of Bryan. He was a big man with a large heart.
    I had just contacted him recently in his new position and was looking forward to visiting with him again at the new bank.
    My prayers and thoughts are with his family. Dorothy Spriggs

  45. I met Mr. Dozier through the bank. He helped me to get a car loan. He was very punctual and could be intimidating at times. But as I got to know him I saw the trueness and kindness in him. Glad I had the chance to meet him. The family has my deepest sympathy and prayers.

  46. I had the privilege to work for Jan many years ago at First National. He was one of the best boss’s I ever had. Yes, he was intimidating, but what a heart he had. He will be missed greatly and by so many. My prayers go out to the family in this difficult time.

  47. We are very sorry to hear of Mr. Jan’s passing. We will be praying for you and the rest of the family during this time of morning.

  48. Dear Mrs. Dozier,
    Please accept my deepest sympathy and condolences to you and your family. Jan was such a wonderful man and served my husband and me as our loan officer for many years at FNB. He was also our friend. Always there for us whatever the question or need. He will be missed by many of us in Bryan and College Station. My prayer is that God will surround you with His love and give you peace and comfort at this very sad time.

  49. Phyllis, we are so sorry to hear about Jan’s death. You have our sincerest sympathy.
    Love to all,
    Ann andTom

  50. Mrs Dozier and family,

    Our prayers are with you. May God bless you and carry you through this time.

  51. My thoughts and prayers are with Jan’s family. I was so sad when our FNB family broke up after the failure of Franklin Bank. Jan was one of those persons that I missed most. I remember around four o’clock he would start filing the loans baskets with loans to be prepared for the next day, and each would say that it was needed at 9:00 A.M. After his third or fourth trip, when he returned; I would say ‘Another nine o’clock?’ He would say ‘nope 9:15’ 🙂 He was a Great Guy, and will be missed by many.

  52. Georgia, Phyllis, Clay and Kelly…Although his journey on this earth was short, this giant man touched the lives of so many. I was blessed with his friendship for many years as was many and appreciate that he shared some of his life with me. God sent a wonderful gift when Jan was born and even more so when he brought the gift of love to him in Georgia. I pray that peace of heart comes to each of you in his memory.

  53. Some people make life long impressions. Jan and Georgia are two of those kind. Georgia, I am so sorry for your loss and the loss to the B/CS community. Jan was a wonderful man and although its been years since I moved away, I am deeply saddened to hear of his passing and the heartbreak you must be suffering. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Deirdre (YCBS 1989).

  54. My deepest sympathy for the loss of Jan. Jan and I worked together at First National Bank in the early 70’s. If I remember right, he was still going to school. I also had Jan’s father for a class at A-M. I always thought a lot of both of them.
