Jason Matthew Bruce
January 31, 1974 ~ January 18, 2021
Unexpectedly but peacefully, in Ottawa on January 18, 2021, of natural causes, our beloved Jason left us far too soon. We are all heartbroken.
Jason is mourned by his mother, Deborah Hanscom, his stepmother Amrita Bruce, fathers, Allan Bruce and Allan Rock, his extended family of a sister and brothers; Julian Bruce (Serena), Lauren Rock, Andrew Rock (Jane) and Steven Rock (Jenna) and by Wenke Schliemann whom he loved deeply. Jason was a kind, and caring person with a big heart and a friendly smile for everyone.
He confronted his challenges with courage and character. What deepens our sadness at his loss, was the joy he gave to others through his playful nature, his loyal friendship and his trusting way. Jason’s gentle soul was not equipped to confront the harsher challenges of life and he struggled to find a place for himself in this tumultuous world. His death leaves an empty space in our lives and a painful ache in our hearts.
