The Association of Ontario Land Surveyors is sad to notify you of the death of Past President Jack Young OLS# 1446
Jack passed peacefully in Markham-Stouffville Hospital on Saturday, December 2nd, 2017 surrounded by his family. Survived by his wife, Sandy, his children Heather, Nancy, Bruce, Christie and grandchildren.
Jack was commissioned as an Ontario Land Surveyor, Canada Lands Surveyor and Professional Engineer. As well as private practice work in both surveying and engineering, he taught at Laurentian University and University of Toronto.
Throughout his professional life he was heavily involved in the Association of Ontario Land Surveyors as Councillor and President (1988) along with serving on numerous Committees. He was well known for his wise and sage advice, having helped many individual surveyors throughout his career.
Jack was key to the creation and management of the Association Senate. In recent years he acted as Parliamentarian during our Annual General Meetings and as Master of Ceremonies during the Veterans Dinner.
A private family service will be held in Markham on Tuesday, December 5th, 2017.
In lieu of flowers, the family has asked that donations be made in Jack's memory to the Educational Foundation of the Association of Ontario Land Surveyors, Rotary Gravenhurst or Laurentian University.
