Obituary of Jason Philip Duke
It is with great sorrow we announce the passing of Jason Duke, father, husband, son, brother, son in law, brother in law, nephew and cousin to our families and friends. He is remembered by all, as a loving compassionate and principled person who enjoyed and lived life to the fullest. If he was your friend, he was your friend for life and was always there for you in time of need. He was a devoted father contributing to his children’s passions through coaching, mentorship and never ending support.
Jason grew up in the Cathedral area of Regina, SK. Growing up Jason was involved in numerous community and club sport organizations and always enjoyed the numerous trips to his relatives up North where he was taught life on the farm, hunting, trapping and fishing. His faith always played an important role growing up and he became active within his parish and was a proud member of the Knights of Columbus. All of these played an important role in being the person he became.
Jason became an entrepreneur at a young age in the painting industry and was always proud of being the third generation of painting professionals. After a few years in the painting industry and through persistent hard work and determination, Jason became one of the nine original CertaPro Painters franchise owners. He left an unforgettable legacy with his extended CertaPro family all over
Jason also loved his politics. He was always involved with his support of the conservative movement. From door knocking to fundraising, he was always a rock solid supporter.
Jason lived by the core values of integrity, respect, responsibility, and leadership which was evident in both his personal and professional life. Jason consistently delivered extraordinary experiences to many people around the world and valued Steve Farber’s quote, “Do What You Love in the Service of People Who Love What You Do”.
Jason is survived by his loving wife of 22 years, Tammy; children Matthew and Julia; parents Philip and Mae; sisters Tracey (Dwayne), Nicole (Michael), Alyssa (Jason); father in-law Dennis; sisters in law Tracy and Teresa (Ryan); nieces and nephews Briana and Hilary (Tracey), Anya and Eero (Nicole), Marcus and Nathan (Alyssa), Mac and Riley (Tracy), Cole and Luke (Teresa). Jason was predeceased by his mother in-law Shirley Monuik.
