Courchesne-van Gool , Jonathan

April 28, 1994 — Dec. 4, 2020

It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Jonathan James Kelly Courchesne-van Gool  (JJ) of Pincher Creek and Fort Macleod on Friday, Dec. 4, 2020, at the age of 26 years due to heart and diabetes complications.

JJ was born April 28, 1994 in Pincher Creek to Patricia van Gool.

As a young man he grew up loving his Ford trucks, rodeoing, camping, fishing, and his army cadet Corp 2309, where he excelled and would go on to travel to Whitehorse and Vernon to teach marksmanship every summer.

Left to mourn his passing is his mother Patricia van Gool (Tracy Fraser); his dad Serge Courchesne; his sisters Stephanie Courchesne (Adam Lakatos) and Kiy-Anna Courchesne (Steven Mitchell), his brother Junior Courchesne; his grandmother Darlene van Gool; his best friend/brother Chandler Graf; and many aunts, uncles, cousins and large extended family.

JJ was predeceased  by his best friend and poppa Kelly van Gool; his grandparents Aderlad and Rita Courchesne; great grandparents Hazel and Jim Stapleton and Gerald and Johanna van Gool (Opa and Oma).

A celebration of JJ’s life will be held once COVID restrictions have ended.

In lieu of flowers donations can be made to Heart and Stroke Foundation or Diabetes Canada.
