Many cities would count themselves fortunate to have a citizen such as Jordon Cooper. He has seen – and shared – the city from every angle. From working directly with people facing poverty and homelessness, to afflicting the comfortable from his columnist position at the Star-Phoenix, producing and hosting podcasts, maintaining his long-running blog on Saskatoon’s history and architectural contributions, as well as critiquing political and civic affairs, Jordon has made Saskatoon the focus of his work. In his personal life, we know him as a generous, fair, and conscientious person, who gives freely of himself to others in need.

Jordon has been diagnosed with Stage 4 cancer and intends to fight it aggressively. We have set this up as a way for people to leave funds to help defray the loss of a second income and provide respite for Jordon, his wife Wendy, and their two boys for the duration of Jordon's illness. All donations will go directly to them.

This was set up by Janice Braden (@JL_Braden), Jeff Jackson (@YXEguy), and Hilary Nelson (@theotherHilary). If you'd like to help in other ways, or if you have any questions or concerns, please contact us via Twitter.

We extend heartfelt thanks to everyone who has donated and continues to give. It is with great sadness we acknowledge Jordon's passing on March 26th. As you know, this is not an easy time for the family, and your gifts are welcome. If you wish to help in other ways, Jordon also would have appreciated donations to cancer research.

Thank you for honouring his memory.

Thank you so much to everyone who has donated or plans on giving. We are staggered by the breadth and depth of your generosity. Jordon has put so much of himself into the community and it is amazing to see it returned a thousandfold.

We will be moving funds over to Wendy this week, and plan to keep fundraising. She will need to take periodic leaves from work and the money will go towards needs during this difficult time.

Thank you again for coming together to support Jordon and his family.
