Captain Jenn Casey
Memorial Journalism Bursary

The University of King’s College, Halifax, recently announced the Captain Jenn Casey Memorial Journalism Bursary.

All of Canada mourned Jenn’s passing in the tragic Snowbirds accident on May 17 at Kamloops, BC during Operation Inspiration.

To honour her memory, the bursary will help ease the burden of university costs for a journalism student at King’s. Jenn graduated from King’s in 2011 with a Bachelor of Journalism degree. Prior to becoming Public Affairs Officer for the Snowbirds, Jenn worked as a journalist, as well as a producer of news radio, having worked in Ontario as well as her native Nova Scotia. Jenn was 35 years old.

The bursary will be awarded annually to a student in the School of Journalism who demonstrates, as Jenn so nobly did during her lifetime, “community spirit and involvement.”

Donations can be made online.
