It is with great sadness the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering announces the sudden passing of Jason Arbour, a second year computer engineering student. His family states "Jason was a loving, thoughtful soul and his life ended far too soon. We are grateful for the friendships he made at UW and the communities he was a part of.”
There will be a private funeral for Jason today; visitation will take place after the funeral (Shiva for 7 days) at Jason’s family home in Maple, Ontario.
Today, the University has lowered its flags, as we honour the life of Jason Arbour.
