Jason Uriah "Jay" Whalen


Jason Uriah "Jay" Whalen

It is with broken hearts and profound sadness that the family of the late Jason Uriah "Jay" Whalen, of Pembrooke, ON, formerly of Canaan, announce his unexpected passing on Friday, November 24, 2023. Born in Kentville, he was a son of Bryce and Sharon (Bezanson) Whalen, of Canaan.

Jay loved Nova Scotia, his kids, and he loved history, especially military history. He’s only ever known the military, and he loved the military. He did three tours Kandahar, Doha and Kabul. He was in the Nova Scotia International Tattoo and became the poster boy for it. He loved anything to do with space and he would talk with friends for hours about planets and stars. He was an open book, and he could strike up a conversation with anyone, anywhere. He might have been the shortest person in the room, but he was certainly the loudest. He would literally give you the shirt off of his back. He had a heart of absolute gold. Most importantly, through all the good and bad times, he was loved by his parents, his children, his friends and extended family.

In addition to his parents, he is survived by his wife, Alisha (Walker), Pembrooke, ON; children, Mac Muirhead, Port Williams; Hannah and Lucas Whalen, Kingston; brother, Michael (Kyla) Whalen, Paradise niece Kadence and nephew Kaleb, several aunts, uncles, cousins and many friends.

Cremation has taken place. A service for Jason will be held at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, December 16, in the White Family Funeral Home, Kentville, with a reception to follow. Donations in memory may be made to Canadian Mental Health. Funeral arrangements have been entrusted to the White Family Funeral Home and Cremation Services, Kentville.
