Volleyball Canada mourns the loss of Jonathon Walsh

April 30th, 2010

Volleyball Canada is deeply saddened after learning of the death of Jonathon Walsh at the age of 32. Jon passed away well before his time on the 27th of April 2010 in Lausanne, Switzerland late in the evening after a much anticipated few days of snowboarding and beach volleyball with good friends.

From Red Deer, Alberta, Jon played 3 years with Red Deer College before transferring to the University of Calgary where he played 2 years for the Dino's. Jon also played many years overseas in Germany, Portugal, Belgium and the Netherlands. In 2001, Jon joined Bring It Promotions as a Player Agent, working with many Canadian athletes over the years providing them professional playing opportunities around the world.

A facebook page is set up in his memory at http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=116652998356414&v=info.

Volleyball Canada would like to express our deepest sympathy to his family, friends, and loved ones.
