In Memory of

Jonathan “Jack” Alexander Jevons



In the wake of Covid-19 pandemic, a Celebration of Life will be planned in the coming months. Jack's family encourages his loved ones and friends to watch this website for more information on a date and time when we can come together. Everyone is encouraged to show their support to Jack's family by leaving written tributes and condolences for the family below in the tribute section of this webpage.

Jonathan “Jack” Alexander Jevons.

10 Dec 1984 – 31 March 2020 in his 36th year.

Loving father of Virginia Ryan Marlene Kurmann (Switzerland) and remembered fondly by her mother Natascha. Beloved son of Mary Jane Culgin and Sean Ronan, David and Susan Jevons. Loved brother of Ben Jevons and his partner D’Arcy Hutchings. Lifelong friend of Jamie Weaver.  Loved by stepbrother Justin Ronan and his wife Kristine and stepsisters, Seanesta Ronan, Valerie Miller and Andrea Miller. Cherished grandson of the late Aileen and Jack Culgin, and the late Joan Heslip. Loved nephew of Barbara and the late Ted Culgin, Debbie and Chris Darling, Jennifer and Allan Burton and Charles Jevons. Jack will be deeply missed by his cousins, the Ronan family and many friends.

Our Jackie, a soul who’s flame burned hot, an adventurous courageous spirit, powerful intellect with the spirit of a thoroughbred. Those who knew Jack knew his sensitive side, his beauty, his terrific sense of humour, his challenges and they loved him.

We use the metaphor of flame to reconcile our emotions of a life cut short, nonetheless a life lived as fully as a person might. Jack had found a calling which buoyed his soul and he was happy. Teaching English to children in Morocco and quickly finding purpose and fulfillment there.

As the world today strives to cope with COVID 19, our wee family are faced with the knowledge this is what took Jack from us. We tried to bring Jack home; however, he was too ill to travel.

Our family’s grief is daunting, foreign, our hearts ache, we all hoped and prayed for a different outcome. In our grief we know we are not alone, the heart of the world is aching, we are in these troubled times together. Humanity shines forth from every corner of our tiny planet, hope is eternal.

We are grateful to The IBIS Budget Hotel for their support, especially Rashid who helped Jack so much in the last two weeks.

A celebration of life will be held at a later date.

On behalf of Jack the family suggests donations to: Sleeping Children Around the World, Canadian Mental Health Association, Simcoe Muskoka Children’s Aid or a cause you believe in. Arrangements entrusted to Rod Abrams Funeral Home, Tottenham. 905-936-3477.

    I was so saddened to hear the news about Jack. I remember when I used to work for you on the 4th line. Jack and Ben were just wee guys. They used to love to play in the backyard or outfront of the shop. You could always hear them laughing. Hold on to the memories and cherish them. Lots of love Tara

    I am so sorry to learn of Jack’s passing. Whenever I look back onto the days of my childhood, my friendship with Jack has always been (and will always be) an important part in this early chapter of my life. We had a lot of fun together.

    Dear Mary Jane & Dave.
    Our memories of Jack have created a sadness and void that words to comfort will fail to conquer. Jack is gone but what remains are vivid memories of times spent together as families.
    The love you created for your family gave us the kind, the gentle, the caring and compassionate spirit of Jack, and the loyal, the thoughtful, the sweet and easy nature of Ben.
    As parents, we recognize our children all to soon become adults, and their choices become their own. What we hope is that of all the things we’ve taught them, it is the importance value of how we treat others. When I see Ben, and when I remember Jack, I think as parents, how could you be more proud?
    Ben, we think if you everyday and miss you much and look forward to a time soon when we can all gather as friends and family to remember Jack.
    With love.
