Obituary of John Baglieri

We are saddened by the death of John Baglieri who passed away at the age of 35 on Thursday, March 8, 2018, after fighting a courageous two-year battle with cancer.

Jay leaves behind his beloved wife Shu and two-year-old daughter Amanda, who were the centre of his universe. Jay will be deeply missed by his parents John and Martha, brother Marshall, sisters Jessica and Amanda and grandmothers Marion Fullerton and Tony Baglieri, many aunts, uncles and cousins and his CTV Saskatoon family.

Jay began his professional career as an investigative journalist with CTV News - Prince Albert, Saskatchewan. After two years he was promoted to CTV Saskatoon. He loved his work with CTV and worked for three more years in Saskatoon until he became ill. One of the most painful things about his illness was having to leave a career that he absolutely loved. It was his passion and it showed in his work.

Known for his sense of humour, intellect and love for adventure Jay developed deep friendships wherever he went and many have come forward to let the family know how he personally touched their lives. He was a well-respected journalist and was always determined to report the truth with compassion and knowledge.
