A Sad Farewell

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

It is with sadness that we say a fond farewell to Alex Jupp, who recently passed away.

Alex joined the Academy in 1996 with his wife Norah Smith, and was an enthusiastic and active member until 2011 when ill health made it difficult for him to continue. A true renaissance man, Alex’s background as a teacher, a university lecturer, a corporate executive, an elected alderman, a public school trustee, and an M.P made him an interesting and engaging facilitator for several workshops throughout his time at the Academy.

Our thoughts and support go out to Alex's wife Norah, still a member of our happy band, and to his sister-in-law and brother-in-law - Janet and Peter Broadley - who are also long-time Academicians.
