It is with deep sadness that we acknowledge the death of Jason Arbour, a second-year Electrical and Computer Engineering student at the University of Waterloo.
Jason’s family will forever remember him as a thoughtful, curious adventurer with a quick wit and a ready laugh. He loved machines of all kinds, from computers to cars. He loved building things with his own two hands.
The University’s thoughts and support are with Jason’s family at this difficult time. A private funeral service will be held on Thursday, October 15, 2020. Jason’s family has asked for memorial donations to be directed to Kids Help Phone.
