Support for Ella Southam

On November 11th 2010, James' life changed forever. Ella Michaela Southam was born. 6 lbs, 2 ozs of pure love and joy. From that moment on, she was his life, his best friend, his greatest motivation.

He watched as she began to grow up into a strong, independent, adventurous, life loving woman. They spent as much time as they could together whether it was making dinner, watching movies, watching her at her Parkour lessons or on the mountain bike trails of North Vancouver.

On May 4th, 2019 his life was tragically cut short.

This fund is being set up by his friends at Western Living, BCBusiness, BCLiving and Vancouver magazines, where James was an account manager, so you can give to the life that James wanted Ella to live. The funds will be used for camps, sports activities, school trips and many more life broadening activities.

James and his family are grateful for any and all contributions made. James's mother, Janis Rousseau, will be administering the funds.
