Media Release: Celebration of Life and Fundraiser to Honour Sudbury Musician Supports HSN’s Nephrology Department

Sudbury – Health Sciences North (HSN) Foundation is pleased to announce that $3,411 was raised on April 15, 2018 at The Big Life of Jean Marc (JM) Vaillancourt fundraiser event in celebration of his life. Proceeds will support the Nephrology Department at HSN.

“When JM passed, the music community lost a valued member. We lost a son, brother, partner, friend, poppa, and first and foremost, a dad,” says Elaine Witzke, former wife of JM. “We are grateful to the members of the community that came out and supported a cause that had become such a large part of his life. We thank all the committee members that had a part in making this event such a success and the musicians who participated.”

Guests who attended the event enjoyed musical tributes from musicians who touched Vaillancourt’s life. JM had an inspiring passion for music and was a member of several local bands.

“JM always lived life large. He is fondly remembered for his vivacious luster for life, people and music. He was the epitome of the word determined and he is dearly missed. Keep on jamming at the Pearly Gates JM,” says Vic Theriault, close friend and event organizer.

“The amount of support the event received in honour of JM is incredibly touching,” says Mary Lou Hussak, President & CEO, HSN Foundation. “A big thank you goes out to everyone who came out that evening and to the committee that took the time to organize such a wonderful fundraiser.”
