On Monday, January 27, 2020, passed away peacefully, surrounded by his loving family at the Ottawa General Hospital. He will be sadly missed by his children, Renée (Tyler Danjaw) and Stephen (Zhan Zou). Proud grandfather of Julian and will be remembered by his former wife Marlene (Nowell).

Jacques’s positive outlook on life remains an inspiration to all who knew him. He loved his family, enjoyed travel, the arts, classical music and food. Was an avid reader, conversationalist and a connoisseur of wine.

Heartfelt thanks to the doctors, nurses and care workers at the Bruyère and General Hospital for their exceptional and compassionate care.
