Plucky cancer fighter dies in Lambton crash
By Jennifer O'BRIEN, Free Press Reporter
He was going to play in the National Hockey League one day. His heart set on that goal, 11-year-old Jalen DAY beat a rare cancer that struck him at goalie camp in 2003.
But yesterday, members of Sarnia's hockey community were devastated to learn the boy known as Smiley -- the boy they had grown to admire -- was killed in a car crash Sunday.
"This is like the cruelest possible plot twist in a movie," said Paul BURGESS, leader of a weekly goalie clinic who shared laughs with Jalen on the ice Saturday.
"You're waiting for the beautiful ending to happen and, all of a sudden, something totally unexpected ruins everything," BURGESS said.
Jalen, who lived in Watford with his family, was one of three area children killed in crashes Sunday.
About 9: 30 a.m., two young sisters, Eva, 4, and Mary FROESE, 9, died on the way to church after a van driven by their mother went out of control on a steep hill near Port Burwell.
The girls' mother, Sara FROESE, three teenage sisters and a male relative suffered non-life-threatening injuries, police said yesterday.
"It's so sad. It's just a freak, sad thing," said Elgin Ontario Provincial Police Const. Jennifer WILKS.
In Lambton County, Jalen's father, David, remained in hospital yesterday with injuries suffered in the crash that killed his son.
The vehicle carrying them collided with another on Petrolia Line around 7: 45 p.m. Sunday. A woman and her six-year-old son from the other vehicle were treated in hospital.
Jalen, sidelined for a year by cancer treatments, had been back to hockey for several months, first at the summer goalie camp, then playing peewee in Watford and attending BURGESS's clinics at the Sarnia Sports and Entertainment Centre.
Everything was going just as Jalen planned, BURGESS said.
"After he found out he had cancer (in August 2003), he told me, 'I'm going to beat cancer because I'm going to play in the National Hockey League someday,' BURGESS said.
"And when he first came back, his skating was suffering because the tumour had affected his right leg. But by Saturday morning, I had put him with the best skaters -- that's how far he had come.
Sarnia Sting goalie coach Larry LUCAS met Jalen at the 2003 goalie camp, where the young boy learned he had a rare form of cancer called rhabdomyosarcoma.
"Everybody is in utter shock," LUCAS said yesterday. "To see him beat cancer and then get a phone call at 7: 30 (a.m.) saying he got killed... I'm really struggling with this."
Jalen was considered a local success story after his rough battle with the brutal cancer that causes tumours to attack muscle cells. The cancer strikes about 60 children around the world each year.
In November 2003, while Jalen was in radiation therapy, the Sting put on a benefit hockey game before a packed arena, raising $25,000 for his family.
London Knights assistant coach Jeff PERRY, then with the Sting, helped organize the game between the Ontario Hockey League team and National Hockey League players.
Jalen dropped the puck.
Yesterday, a "devastated and numb" PERRY recalled the day.
"It was great," he said. "The highlight was Jalen sitting beside me in the dressing room... he looked over at me and said he didn't want the day to end."
Students and staff at Brooke Central school in Alvinston were grieving Jalen's death yesterday.
Principal Ann LARSEN said she couldn't comment personally, but read from a news release.
"Jalen... was always willing to share and express his humour and good sportsmanship with others," the release said.
"His recent success in overcoming cancer was wellknown in the community and his determination to overcome adversity was an inspiration."

And Paul.
Forever loved and remembered
By Brother Brian, Kathy and J.C.
To my brother Jay,
It is hard to believe that it has been ten years since I last saw you and heard your voice. Even though you aren't here with me physically, I know you are with me in memories and in spirit. So on this day I remember you for all that you were and wanted to be. You are my guardian angel and I know in my heart you would be very proud of me and everything I have accomplished.
Jay, you are forever loved and remembered.
I miss you and love you with all my heart.
Love your sister Natasha (OULLETTE.)

Bernard Whittaker BURGESS
By John ROY, Friday, September 9, 2005, Page A18
Husband, dad, grandfather. Born January 7, 1921, in Ottawa. Died July 29 in Brockville, Ontario, of Parkinson's disease, aged My first encounter with Bernie BURGESS was when I drove his daughter Mary home from a class we shared at John Abbott College in Montreal. Mary and I were in the car, "parking" in the driveway, when my future father-in-law came around the corner of the house. Although he had a big grin on his face, he was brandishing a rather mean-looking rake.
In spite of that awkward introduction to the BURGESS family, I was invited up to their cottage, and that's when I started to really get to know the man.
He was an engineer, through and through, and brought his engineer's brain to every task. Under his gentle tutelage, we coaxed back to life many washing machines, clothes dryers, water pumps, bilge pumps and septic pumps. No machine was relinquished until it had consumed three times its weight in spare parts.
He taught me that if a thing was worth building, it was worth overbuilding.
Construction codes were for the faint of heart. Surely, if the code called for a one-by-three beam, then a two-by-four would be better, and a two-by-six best of all.
He helped me re-wire the house Mary and I bought -- to his standard, of course. I have sufficient outlets and power to run a small factory in my basement if I want. We have all been blessed with decks, furniture, even complete additions that meet the Bernie-built standard. If the measure of a man is the amount of board feet of lumber, barrels of nails, pounds of rebar and bags of cement made into useful projects, then truly he was a giant among men.
Although I've had a few laughs at his expense, that's okay, because he would have been the first to laugh. He loved to be teased and to tease.
Throughout our married life, he was always a quiet presence, helping in unseen ways. As a young married couple with no credit, we got a rough ride from the bank when we went looking for a mortgage. Bernie commiserated, and soon after, as if by magic, we got our mortgage and a note of apology from the then-chief executive officer of the Bank of Montreal.
I know that he worked this magic for others as well -- in his capacity as mayor of Senneville, Quebec, through his career at the Pulp and Paper Research Institute of Canada, on the many industry and government committees he chaired or advised, through his work with the St. Vincent De Paul's Hospital in Brockville, Ontario, Kingston General Hospital Foundation, and his beloved alma mater, Queen's University. We have all felt the protective comfort of his embrace.
I'll try to make everything I do worthy of being "Bernie Built," that is, carefully overplanned, lovingly overbuilt and with just enough material left over for the start of the next project.
I'll miss his quiet, gentle counsel. I'm so glad he didn't chase me away with the rake.
John ROY is Bernie BURGESS's son-in-law.
