"It is just unbelievable how many people he touched. For a kid of 27 he had come along way."

Jamie’s parents are not alone in their grief. He touched many in Whistler.

"It didn’t matter what was happening to him he always kept a positive attitude," said roommate Shawn Tiedeman.

"He was happy, always smiling… I feel like I have lost my brother."

Whiski Jack Resorts co-worker Cheryn Pollard teamed up with Jamie’s many friends to host a fundraiser Wednesday at Tapley’s Neighbourhood Pub to help the family pay the bills.

Donations are also being accepted at the Bank of Montreal in the family’s Newfoundland home town of Channel-Port aux Basques.(Transit #1036).

"He was a truly good person who only ever wanted the best for everybody," said Pollard.

"He gave people something to aspire to because not too many people are like that."

A memorial will be held in Whistler October 20, which would have been Jamie’s 28 th birthday. Jamie’s hope was that his ashes would be scattered on Whistler Mountain.
