JURGENS, Robert John
In loving memory of a dear, sweet, kind and loving father and grandfather, Robert, who passed away September 22, 2006.
We'll remember you with a smile today,
For a smile was always on your face.
We'll reflect on all the memories
Of all the happy years.
Recall to mind the way you spoke
And all the things you said.
Your strength, your whistle, the way you sang.
We'll remember the advice you gave us,
The example you set and your eyes that shone with laughter.
As we loved you, so we miss you
And long for you every day.
- Sadly missed by Kevin, Lesley, Sierra, Eric, Mariah and Alexis TRAIN.

JURIST, Michael Evan
Taken from us suddenly and too soon on Monday, July 30, 2007. Born June 22, 1985, Michael Evan JURIST had already realized outstanding academic achievements and made an indelible imprint on the hearts and minds of those he touched. The cherished only child of Vesna NOWELL- JURIST and Paul Michael JURIST and grand_son of Lola LEMAN and Judith SORGEN. He leaves behind many beloved aunts, uncles, cousins and dear Friends. Michael was about to begin a new career at Deutsche Bank, New York following graduation in May from Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service, Georgetown University, Washington, D.C., on the Dean's List with a B. Sc. in Foreign Service, Major International Politics - Foreign Policy. While at Georgetown University, Michael's successes were many including an Advanced Certificate in European Studies, Member, Pi Delta Phi (National French Honor Society), Member Phi Alpha Theta (National History Honor Society) and Chair of Georgetown University Lecture Fund in his last year of his 2003-2007 involvement. It was the latter that piqued his interest in geopolitics and stimulated his astute intellect. It was those times when Michael would talk about some of the speakers - such as Senator Barack Obama, King Abdullah of Jordan, Margaret MacMillan and actor Robin Williams -- encountered through Georgetown and the Lecture Fund that the normally calm composure would slip just for a moment and the passion for thought and burgeoning beliefs would shine through. Michael achieved Advanced Proficiency in French and Intermediate Proficiency in Spanish; the former which he honed during a six month interchange at Institut D'Etudes Politiques, Lyon, France in 2006. His success at Georgetown University was mirrored in his earlier formative years where he excelled at Upper Canada College, Toronto, graduating in top 10 percent of Class, International Baccalaureate Diploma. To focus only on Michael's academic accomplishments would not reveal the fervent essence of his shining spirit; the part of him we mourn the most and the part that leaves the greatest vacuum in the lives of those left behind. Michael's love of tennis and travel were in fierce competition. His tennis skills earned him Accredited Tennis Canada Coach status and led to summers coaching at Tournament Park Tennis Club, Toronto, Matchpoint Academy, Mont Tremblant, and Swarthmore Tennis Camp, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and playing on Georgetown University Club Tennis, a nationally-ranked intercollegiate team. His language proficiency and interest in international affairs spurred his extensive global travel interests, most recently a post graduation family trip to Dubrovnik and Tuscany. Michael's perpetual intellectual curiosity always led to asking why; his sense of adventure always asking why not; and a generosity of spirit that gave effortlessly and with grace to everyone he encountered along the short path that was his life. Michael Evan JURIST was laid to rest in a private family ceremony on Thursday, August 2, 2007. A Memorial Service will be held to remember Michael on Tuesday, August 7, 2007, 6: 00 p.m., Laidlaw Hall, Upper Canada College, 200 Lonsdale Road, Toronto. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Michael Jurist Trust Fund will be accepted at any Scotiabank branch account or email transfer to Jurist. Trust@db.com. The Fund will be used to perpetuate Michael's memory in the field of education. Cheques (in Canadian or U.S. dollar) may also be mailed to Michael Jurist Memorial Trust Fund, c/o Deutsche Bank AG, 199 Bay Street, Commerce Court West, Box 263, Toronto, Ontario, M5L 1E9.

Toronto Student Killed By Lightning In S.C.
By Associated Press and staff, Page S8
Hilton head Island, S.C. -- A Toronto man was struck and killed by lightning on July 30 as he walked on the beach near the Sea Pines resort on Hilton head Island.
Beaufort County Sheriff's Captain Bob Bromage said Michael JURIST, a former student at Upper Canada College who had just graduated from university, was out for a walk with his mother, Vesna JURIST, when a thunderstorm suddenly developed about 5 p.m.
"They started to head back when they saw the storm coming," Joheida Fister of Hilton head Island Fire and Rescue Division told The Beaufort Gazette. "I guess it came too quickly."
The two turned back for their summer home in Sea Pines only to be knocked off their feet by a bolt of lightning. A beach patrol boat that happened to be out searching for a missing swimmer was alerted and radioed for help. Two lifeguards arrived within minutes and performed cardio-pulmonary resuscitation on Mr. JURIST. He was taken to a hospital, where he died. He was 22.
Mrs. JURIST was also hurt but her injuries were not life-threatening.
Mr. JURIST was an only child who graduated from Upper Canada College in 2003 and then enrolled at Georgetown University in Washington. He graduated this spring. A memorial service will be held at Upper Canada College on at 6 p.m. on August 7.

Lightning-strike victim was promising young man
By Siri AGRELL, Page L2
In March, Michael JURIST told a campus paper at Georgetown University that he had been impressed by visiting Nobel Peace Prize winner Mohammad Yunus.
"It was inspiring because he was humble," he said of the economist's address.
This week, Friends of the 22-year-old Toronto man described Mr. JURIST in similar terms following his sudden death. He was struck by lightning last week near his family's vacation home in Hilton Head, S.C.
Accomplished, attractive and intelligent, Mr. JURIST was described most often by those who knew him as being humble, an uncommon virtue in the realm of tony private schools, Ivy League colleges and job offers in New York and London to which Mr. JURIST had propelled himself.
A recent graduate of Georgetown's Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service living in New York, Mr. JURIST was an only child, raised in Toronto by his parents Paul and Vesna. His mother, who was walking with him on the beach, was also hit by the lightning strike but did not suffer serious physical injuries.
"They started to head back when they saw the storm coming," Joheida Fister, a spokeswoman for the Town of Hilton head Island Fire and Rescue Division, told the local media. "I guess it came too quickly."
Mr. JURIST attended Upper Canada College, where he played tennis and was elected by his peers as the head of McHugh House.
At university in Washington, D.C., he volunteered with the Corp, a non-profit campus corporation that provides students with low-cost goods and services, and acted as chairman of Georgetown's lecture fund, where he brought high-profile speakers to campus.
Last October, he was called upon to soothe the student outcry sparked by the impending address of a controversial guest, Chris Simcox, president of the Minutemen Civil Defense Corps, an anti-immigration group.
"I recognize that he's a controversial figure and that some people may have a problem with him. But his group has played a major role in the mainstream," Mr. JURIST told the campus newspaper at the time. "And I hope everyone respects our rights to bring someone who represents another side of the debate."
It was this passionate, measured intelligence that was most remarkable to his Friends and school mates.
"You hear it so often when there's a tragedy like this, that it couldn't have happened to a nicer guy, but there's not too many guys out there that were nicer than him," said Mike ANNECCHINI, a Toronto resident who went to Upper Canada College with Mr. JURIST and described his former classmate as a natural leader.
When Mr. ANNECCHINI lost the position of head of house to Mr. JURIST, he remembers his friend, the immensely popular, athletic student who would ace his Scholastic Assessment Tests and pass up admission to Harvard, telling him bashfully: "You really should have got it."
On Facebook, hundreds of Friends of the Toronto man formed mourning groups and planned gatherings in New York and Washington to pay tribute to his memory.
In Toronto, a memorial will be held at Upper Canada College's Laidlaw Hall tonight at 6 p.m.
John BITOVE, a former neighbour of the JURIST family, said his sons, 19 and 17, are devastated by the loss of their childhood playmate.
"He was a great role model for my two boys," he said. "He was just a very well-mannered, respectful, wonderful child. The model child."
