Yellows' manager Darren Patterson told the club's official website: 'Jamie is a player I have admired for a long time.
'He has always excelled against our reserves and I've seen him play at first team level where he has looked the part as well.
'He has a great work rate, scores goals and with James Constable and Yemi already here we have good options up front.'
The deal will be completed subject to clearance of paperwork by the footballing authorities.
Vital Colchester would like to wish Jamie the best of luck with Oxford this coming season.
