Anita Lynn Jessop (née Fournier)

June 15, 1953 – June 16, 2017

It is with a heavy heart that we mark the passing of one of our own, Anita Jessop. Anita was a dedicated, long-serving staff member within UVic's Division of Continuing Studies and worked for the university for over two decades.


Anita passed away peacefully at 6:00 pm on Friday, June 16, 2017 at the Royal Jubilee Hospice, after a lengthy illness. She was born on June 15, 1953 in Hamilton, Ontario, where she married Alan Jessop and travelled to Victoria, BC to unfold their lives. She was the proud mother of Adam and Emily, proud grandmother of Jaxon and Owen, and will be very missed but never forgotten.

Anita will be lovingly remembered by her family in Hamilton, her father Armond, sister Janet, and brothers John, Mark and Michael. 


For those who knew Anita and would like to leave a message, the family has said "please feel free to share your memories, feelings and photos, as we are all heartbroken and already miss her madly." Please visit Anita's Tribute Page.

If you would like to make a donation, Anita’s charities of choice are Victoria Hospice and the Canadian Cancer Society.
