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 4 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.

We are so saddened to hear of the loss of our dear friend Deb. When she lived in Alliston, she set a wonderful model of a Girl Guide leader, forging forever friendships with sister leaders and their daughters. Amie enjoyed many Guide activities, with Deb as her mentor. Deb’s intellect, profound knowledge and acts of kindness made it a privilege to know her. Her love of quilting, knitting and scrapbooking leaves wonderful memories as we would while away the hours, whether it be laughing or shedding the odd tear. Personally, we shared with affection the nickname “Twin” between us, as we shared the same day and year of birth. Heartfelt condolences to Paige and all Deb’s family, her time on earth was exemplary, as she gave so much to so many. Love to you Deb, Heather Doane and Amie Cochrane

Dear Jago Family. I am so sorry for your loss. I had the pleasure of working with Deb during her time as Vice Principal of Bradford High. She supported me through the early years of my teaching career and I will forever be grateful for her strength, kindness and compassion. My deepest condolences. Sarah Armstrong

Dear Jago Family,
Deb touched the lives of many people and we will always remember her care and compassion towards others. She embraced CCI Black and Gold by her leadership and dedication to staff and students. Deb had many talents and would share readily with others - by mastering butter tart recipes or helping out with school activities. She was so proud of her family - her daughter, her dad, her siblings and their families. This was so evident when she shared the latest knitting or sewing project, trips to Lake Huron or family updates. Our family will cherish the memories of Deb and the wonderful person she was.
With love,
Susie, Bill, Evan and Nathan McLeod

I am so sorry to hear about Deb passing. Deb was a great VP at Nantyr Shores Secondary School. I feel blessed to have worked with her. She was kind and compassionate, and she always had time for anyone that passed by her office.
I am so sorry for your loss.
Yours Sincerely,
