On September 27, 2017 representatives from at least 16 different community groups got together at the Golf Course to thank Jacquie Jessup and  husband Bart for their amazing diverse volunteerism while living on this special island for 17 years. Their strong presence on so many boards and agencies created a wealth of stories for us all to enjoy as we learned about these many pursuits!  They will be irreplaceable.

The Gabriola Ecumenical Society is one of those groups that valued Jacquie as a Board member, Program Planning Committee and a volunteer extraordinaire  since it’s inception in 2004. She played many roles and was always a willing and enthusiastic participant in whatever she was doing.  Jacquie and Bart are moving to White Rock to be closer to their daughter and upcoming grandchild!  They will be sorely missed by all!
