JACKMAN, Gerard (Jody)

It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Jody in his 61st year on Saturday, August 29, 2020 at St. Joseph’s Hospital, surrounded by family and loved ones. Predeceased by his parents Gerald (Toby) and Frances Jackman. He is survived by his loving wife Wendy. Loved brother of Stephen (Gail), Gerald (Marlene), Michael, and Mary Ellen (Michael Andrego). Dear uncle of Justin (Marle), Wesley (Maureen), Courtney, (Dan Cannon),Jack, Kyle (Brittney), Zachary, and Dylan. Jody will also be missed by his many extended family members and friends. Jody retired from Stelco after many years of service. Due to the Pandemic, services will be for family only. Cremation. We would like to thank the staff of the ICU at St. Joe’s for keeping Jody comfortable and pain free throughout his stay there. Also, we would like to thank the surgeons who worked so hard to save him even though it was an impossible task. And a extra Special Thanks to the Nephrology Team of St Joseph’s.

Oh Uncle Jody ~ I don’t even know where to start... What moves through us is a silence, a sadness, a longing for one more day, word, touch, but little by little we begin to remember not that you are gone but that you lived! And that your life gave us memories too beautiful to forget!
Life definitely threw you your fair share of curve balls, but you always came out swinging. I don’t know anyone tougher than you, with a heart of gold. I always knew that our family get togethers would bring laughs & a good time if you were there! I’m going to miss your hugs, your infectious smile & laughter & the way you always cared about & cheered us on with whatever was going on in our lives. I feel blessed to have so many amazing memories with you ~ as your favourite niece & goddaughter 😉 ~ I will cherish them always & let them live on. I hope you knew how much I adored you.
I’m sad you didn’t get to meet Jack, but he’ll hear all about you. I hope with you watching over him as he grows, that he’ll have the strength, courage & heart to tackle anything life throws at him, the way you did.
God broke our hearts to prove to us, He only takes the best. Your life was a blessing, your memory a treasure. You are loved beyond words & missed beyond measure. I’ll hold you close within my heart & there you will remain.. to walk with me throughout my life, until we meet again.
I love & miss you Uncle Jody. Hope you’re living your best after-life. Give hugs to Nana & Papa xo
❤️ Courtney
