Junior career

Koe played in five straight Canadian Junior Curling Championships, from 1994 to 1998. In 1994, he played third for his brother, Kevin, representing the Yukon/Northwest Territories team. The rink lost in the final to Alberta. In 1995, Kevin graduated from juniors, leaving Jamie to skip the team. He would skip the Territories to a 2-9 record at the 1995 Canadian Juniors. In 1996, each territory got their own team, and Koe would skip the Northwest Territories team. The rink finished the round robin with a 7-5 record, and would win one and lose one tiebreaker match. In 1997, Koe's Northwest Territories team finished the round robin in 2nd place at 8-4, but lost to Ontario's John Morris in the semifinal. In his final juniors, in 1998, Koe missed the playoffs, skipping the Northwest Territories to a 5-7 record.

Men's career

After juniors, Koe moved to Alberta for school, and would team up with his brother again. However, he would soon move back to his native Northwest Territories.

Koe won his first Territories men's championship in 2006, sending him to his first Tim Hortons Brier. His 6-5 record at the 2006 Tim Hortons Brier was good enough for 5th place, the best finish for the Territories since 1975. Koe would represent the Territories again in 2007, 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012. Koe got to play his brother for the first time at a Brier in 2010, when Kevin won the Alberta provincial championship for the first time. It was only the third time in Brier history where two brothers would compete against each other as skips.

Koe's best performance at the Brier was at the 2012 Tim Hortons Brier, where he finished 7-4 in the round robin, securing the 4th place spot in the playoffs. However, he lost both his playoff matches, settling for fourth place. He lost to his brother Kevin's Alberta rink in the 3 vs. 4 game, and then lost to Manitoba's Rob Fowler in an extra end in the bronze medal game. Koe returned to the Brier in 2013 where he could not repeat his success, but still posted a decent 5-6 record.

Personal life

Koe is employed as a comptroller general with the government of the Northwest Territories. He is married and has two children.
