JASON, Yael Sara Dalit
It is with deep sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Yael on Thursday, July 17, 2014 at the far too young age of 32 years. Yael passed away peacefully in her home. Yael was the beloved daughter of Paul and Yvonne, much-loved sister of Mikhela (Jesse Alboim) and Guy (Lindsay Antenucci), cherished granddaughter of Eve, and adored long-time partner of Scott Broadbent. Yael was a beautiful and creative young woman, both inside and out, who, despite all her health issues, from a very young age, had many wonderful achievements and made such a difference in the community, including being the driving force and inspiration behind The Snowflake Ball, to raise money and awareness for Crohn's, colitis, and colorectal cancer. Yaelly, you will be missed desperately, and although you may be gone, you will live forever in our hearts. Please come and celebrate Yael's life and legacy. To pay respects, Visitation is being held at the Pinecrest Visitation Centre, 2500 Baseline Road, Ottawa, on Wednesday, July 23, 2014 from 7 - 9 p.m. and the Funeral will take place on Thursday, July 24, 2014 at 2:00 p.m., at Pinecrest Remembrance Chapel, 2500 Baseline Road, Ottawa.

In memoriam, donations may be made to the Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO) Inflammatory Bowel Disease Centre (with donation payable to "CHEO Foundation - IBD Fund" in memory of Yael Jason).
