With profound sadness we announce Debra Anne Jago passed away peacefully on May 22, 2020 surrounded by family at the young age of 63. For over 5 years she fought unrelentingly against cancer, never wanting to admit it was a stronger foe and beating the odds day in and day out until she had nothing left to fight with. A true inspiration to the entire family, her physicians and care givers. Loving mother of Cathryn Paige Wilkinson and inseparable from pets Edie, Alice and Izzy. She is survived by her father Douglas Jago and was the eldest of 5 siblings including Rebecca, Randall (Angie), Marcia Cooley (Wayne), and Brad (Deborah) and predeceased by her mother Isobel (nee Hannahson). Auntie Deb was always there for Lauren, Jessica, Abby, Rachel and Benjamin. Debra graduated from the University of Guelph with an Honours BComm in Hotel & Food Administration and worked for several hotels & restaurants across Ontario. After the joyful arrival of Cathryn, she returned to school at the Univ. of Toronto to obtain her Bachelors of Education to balance out work and motherhood. Her teaching career was entirely with the Simcoe County District School Board at the secondary level; first starting in Alliston, subsequent moves to Nantyr Shores and Bradford with her last role as Vice Principal at Collingwood Collegiate Institute. An avid reader of all types of books, Debra also enjoyed travelling, theatre, knitting and quilting – always in company of great friends. Like her mother, Debra’s ‘Happy Place’ was the family cottage at Ipperwash Beach, where she would gaze at the lake from the house and look forward to the spectacular evening sunsets.
A private family gathering will take place and a larger Celebration of Life will be organized at a later date. In lieu of flowers Debra has asked that donations to the Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation or Brantford SPCA would be greatly appreciated.

I had the pleasure of working with Deb at both Nantyr Shores Secondary School and Collingwood Collegiate Institute. In her role as vice-principal, Deb helped many students with their challenges. She had a way of making each student feel special, and she frequently received notes and gifts of appreciation from families of students whose lives she touched. To her work colleagues, Deb will be remembered as always having a smile on her face and a good story to tell. She was an excellent vice-principal, a friend to all, and she made the world a better place.

On behalf of all the staff at Collingwood Collegiate Institute, I want to send my sympathies to the family. Many of us here at CCI, including myself, have wonderful memories of working with Deb. She was a great VP and a great colleague. She was supportive and helpful to both students and staff and a part of her lives on in all the people she interacted with so positively over the years. We will be making a donation in her memory as a token of our esteem for Deb. Nancy Sherwin and all the staff at CCI.

Debra was a lady with a soul and a Sol! A loving mom, a devoted daughter, a true big sister, and a caring aunt. She was an educator and administrator-no easy job! She was an avid reader, an animal lover, knitter and quilter. She was creative and loved to create, particularly If she could give away the fruits of her labour to those she cared about. Debra was brave and faced her fate with true grace. She is gone far too young. To Cat and the Jago family, our deepest condolences. Maryanne, Todd and the Mason family.
