In Memory of Michael Jessen

It is with profound sadness that his family announces the sudden and unexpected passing of local environmentalist and loving father and husband, Michael Jessen. The above quote is from a letter to the editor he wrote just a few weeks ago and it perfectly encapsulates the way Michael lived his life. Michael’s passion for the environment was a mainstay throughout his life and those who knew him well will remember the energy and vigour with which he could speak on that and all other topics close to his heart.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Osprey’s Environment Fund. Click here for more details.

"I believe that we humans are beings created for ethical action, beings meant to step into the stream of human life and create causes, create effects, to be, to know, to love, and to do right in the human world."
Michael Jessen
