Timothy Ross Jewell
June 30, 1964 – August 18, 2019
It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of Timothy Ross Jewell, after a courageous battle with brain cancer. He will be sadly missed by his daughters Christina and Claire and his wife Louisa Jewell, mother Desanka Jewell, sisters Heather (Tom), Angela (Pablo), niece Veronica and nephew Andre and brother Paul, Aunt Yvonne and Uncle John Speck, cousins Mike (Christine) and David, Brandon and Danielle and countless life-long friends who loved him dearly. We know his father, Paul Jewell, was waiting in heaven to welcome Tim to a better place. Tim was a kind and generous soul who always put everyone else’s needs above those of his own. He was very, very good to us all. Tim grew up in Toronto attending high school at St. Georges College and graduated from the University of Waterloo as an Electrical Engineer with a minor in computer science. He was a brilliant programmer, inventor and entrepreneur who founded his company, DataDepositBox where he flourished until the end. His favourite job was acting as Santa Claus for the Red Door Family Homeless shelter Christmas party for 20 years where he personified generosity and graciously spread joy. He was the funniest person we knew and made us laugh every day until our bellies hurt. He loved to play squash, was an avid CrossFit man and loved to dance the night away to house music at “Table 12.” It was a tragic day for the world when we lost our Timmy. He will be sadly missed but will be in our hearts forever.
