Posted on 2014-03-06 14:36:35

Simon Fraser University Athletics has announced that former Clan football players Tim Jones and James Jardine are will be inducted into their class of 2014 Hall of Fame.

The late Jones will be the second inductee into the Terry Fox Honourary Inductee category, and the first nominee following Fox himself.

Jones became the volunteer team leader of the North Shore Rescue, a mountain search and rescue team based out of Vancouver, BC. He raised over one million dollars to fund his rescue team's work, and introduced helicopter based long line rescue protocols to the program. Jones also served as the Paramedic in Charge with the BC Ambulance Service outside of his volunteer endeavours, saving countless lives between the two over 30 years of service. He tragically lost his life on January 19, 2014, but will be remembered by all the communities touched by his contributions throughout his lifetime.

Also getting the call to the Hall as an athlete is James Jardine.

Jardine was a charter member of the SFU football team, recruited by the Clan’s Founding Athletic Director and first head football coach Lorne Davies. He was originally recruited as the team’s quarterback but switched to the running back position after his freshman season, leading the team’s offence throughout his career. After graduation Jardine became a BC Provincial Court Judge.

The 2014 inductees will be honoured at a luncheon on Monday, March 31 at the Diamond Alumni Centre on the SFU campus from 11:30 am to 2 pm.
