Jason’s story started on a hot August 30th day, 1962. He was the fourth of seven children of Donald and Norma Duggan. Jay grew up in Lively, attending LDSS. He loved tinkering with anything mechanical, keeping his truck in top shape, snowmobiling in winter, watching the Blue Jays, barbequing, spending time at camp and enjoying a rum and coke. He will be deeply missed by his wife, Michelle, stepsons Roan and Martial Bartsch, his sisters Tracy, Andrea and Gillian, his brothers, Shawn and Todd, his mother, Norma and nieces Emily and Holly Dickinson. Jay was predeceased by his father, in February 2023 and by his oldest sister, Lisa in 2005. Jay spent his career welding, working at Stainless Steel Technology for the last 20 years. During the last three years, Jason launched an extraordinary fight against his cancer and repeatedly surprised his doctor with encouraging results from the chemotherapy treatment he received at the Northeast Cancer Centre. Sadly, the last few months were extremely difficult as the cancer spread. Michelle and the family would like to thank Jason’s compassionate physicians, Dr. Ali and Dr. Singh, the tireless nurses at HSN, as well as the wonderful staff at Maison McCulloch Hospice where Jay spent his final days. A Celebration of Jay’s Life will be held at a later date.
