Jametz is a commune in the Meuse department in Grand Est in north-eastern France.

Those who live in this small commune placed to the North-East of France, near to the border with Belgium, devote themselves principally to the upbringing of cattle, manufacture of cheeses, the crafts of wood and leather from the 15th century. Former, many of his inhabitants with the intention of making the people and products recognizable, chose to take as surname the name of this small locality (some with variations like Jamet or Jamett), that proudly even keeps his customs and local traditions alive.
