McKeddie, Jason Robert

It is with great sadness that the family of Jason McKeddie announces his sudden passing in Timmins, Ontario on May 5th at the age of 40. Loving and adored son of Claudette McKeddie and Robert McKeddie (predeceased) in 2006. Beloved “little brother” of Sylvie (Rose) Berardelli. Special nephew of Claude (predeceased) and Yolande Démoré of Hanmer, Leonie and Ron Lamothe of Sudbury, Michel and Diane Démoré of Sudbury, Jean and Nichole Démoré of Ottawa, Kathy McKeddie of Renfrew, Carol Legree and Ed (predeceased) of Renfrew. Jason will be missed and fondly remembered by his many cousins and countless friends. Jason was an amazing individual who devoted his life to helping others. He inspired people through his amazing courage, his leadership and exemplary community service. Jason volunteered for over 20 years at the General Hospital and at HSN. He assisted all emergency patients with the greatest care. He had a heart like no other. He also volunteered for the Greater Sudbury Police Services Citizens on Patrol and proudly played the role of Inspector Mooseau at many events within the community. His greatest passion was volunteering with the Canadian Red Cross and being deployed to help others in times of need. His bags were always packed and he would be available on a moment’s notice. During his final days, Jason was in Timmins Ontario managing a shelter for Kashechewan evacuees. He was so proud of his work and his heart was filled with compassion. He was a trained search and rescue volunteer and a First Aid instructor. In 2012, Jason was recognized with a Governor General’s award for bravery. He has countless volunteer awards and a civic award for his tireless voluntary work. He was a hero to his family and to many in his community and Jason will be forever remembered as such. Jason loved spending time with his mother playing cards, challenging each other on iPad games or just talking. He always made sure he checked in daily with all who meant the world to him. He was an avid Toronto Maple Leafs fan, loved travelling and loved life no matter his challenges. Jason always found humour in life’s events. His teasing smile and belly laugh giggle will be cherished forever. Heaven has gained an extraordinary angel. Rest in peace Jason, your work on earth is done. Thank you from the bottom of all our hearts.

A celebration of Jason’s life will take place at the Lougheed Funeral Home Hanmer/Capreol Chapel, 4605 Michelle Drive, Hanmer, Ontario on Saturday May 18th from 1pm to 4pm with words of remembrance at 3pm. In lieu of flowers, we invite you to support Jason’s humanitarian work by making a donation to the Sudbury branch of the Canadian Red Cross in his honour.
For donations or messages of condolence,

C’est avec une profonde tristesse que la famille de Jason McKeddie annonce son décès soudain à Timmins le 5 mai, à l’âge de 40 ans. Il est le fils adoré de Claudette Mc Keddie et Robert McKeddie (décédé en 2006), ‘’petit frère’’ de Sylvie (Rose) Berardelli et neveu spécial de feu Claude et Yolande Démoré de Hanmer, Léonie et Ron Lamothe de Sudbury, Michel et Diane Démoré de Sudbury et Jean et Nichole Démoré d’Ottawa ainsi que de Kathy McKeddie de Renfrew et Carol Legree et feu Ed de Renfrew. Les cousins et les nombreux amis de Jason garderont de bons souvenirs de lui. Jason a été une personne remarquable qui a passé sa vie à aider les autres. Son courage, son leadership et son bénévolat exemplaire sont une inspiration pour nous tous. Il a œuvré comme bénévole à l’hôpital pendant 20 ans, où il accompagnait les patients de l’urgence, ce qu’il faisait avec compassion. Il était l’un des citoyens en patrouille de la police du Grand Sudbury et il était fier de jouer le rôle de l’inspecteur Mooseau lors d’événements dans la communauté. Ce qui le passionnait le plus était son travail au sein de la Croix-Rouge. Ses valises étaient toujours prêtes en vue des déploiements à l’extérieur. Durant ses derniers jours, il gérait l’accueil à Timmins pour les sinistrés de Kashechewan. Jason avait un grand cœur et il était fier de son travail. Il était certifié en premiers soins et avait un entraînement comme bénévole en recherche et sauvetage. En 2012, il a reçu le prix du gouverneur général pour sa bravoure. Il s’est aussi mérité grand nombre de distinctions pour son bénévolat soutenu. Pour sa famille et plusieurs membres de sa communauté, Jason est un héros. Il était proche de sa mère et l’aidait beaucoup; il aimait bavarder avec elle ou jouer aux cartes ou à des jeux vidéo. Il communiquait régulièrement avec ses proches. Il était un partisan des Maple Leaf, il aimait voyager et il aimait la vie, malgré les défis qu’elle lui présentait. Il savait voir l’humour dans les événements et il aimait rire et agacer. Repose en paix, Jason, ton travail sur terre est terminé. Nous nous ennuierons de toi mais nous serons consolés à l’idée que tu veilles sur nous.
Une célébration de la vie de Jason aura lieu à la chapelle du salon funéraire Lougheed de Hanmer/Capreol, au 4605, promenade Michelle, à Hanmer, Ontario le samedi 18 mai de 13h à 16h, avec témoignages à 15h. Ceux qui veulent honorer sa mémoire et poursuivre son œuvre humanitaire peuvent le faire en faisant une offrande, plutôt que des fleurs, à la succursale de Sudbury de la Croix Rouge.
