“Last night British Columbians learned of the loss of Tim Jones, a trailblazer and passionate volunteer in educating people about outdoor safety.
“Many lives have been saved thanks to Tim. His legacy, dedication and contributions to his community and our entire province cannot be measured.
“I consider myself lucky to have known Tim personally and to have been a friend of his. Anyone who knew him can attest to his warmth as a caring individual who always put others before himself.
“My thoughts and condolences are with Tim’s friends and colleagues at North Vancouver’s BC Ambulance Service and North Shore Rescue, but especially with his wife Lindsay, his son Curtis, and daughter Taylor. Tim will be deeply missed by all who knew him, by people whose lives he touched, and those who are alive today thanks to his kindness and commitment. The entire North Shore community and British Columbia have lost a true hero.”
