Jonathan SWALLOW
By Chris MALETTE Tuesday, October 7, 2003 - Page A24
Teacher, educational software consultant, ski and soccer coach, and dad. Born in Glenn Ridge, N.J., on April 20, 1958. Died April 27 in Stirling, Ontario, of sudden heart failure, aged 45.
Kids who love a cold day on a fast ski hill, somewhat sedentary soccer moms and dads who liked to break an occasional sweat and, strangely, frogs everywhere will miss Jonathan SWALLOW. Jonathan was 45 when, in the prime of an athletic and active life, his heart -- harbouring a hidden, undiagnosed ailment that affected the rhythm of the organ -- betrayed an otherwise vibrant man in his prime.
Born in suburban New Jersey and educated at Syracuse University, Jonathan came to Canada in the 1980s to undertake graduate studies at McMaster University where he met the woman who would become his wife, Mary Ellen THOMPSON/THOMSON/TOMPSON/TOMSON. He went on to achieve his PhD at the University of Toronto.
In his professional career, Jonathan was lauded by scholars for his cutting-edge work in interactive learning software. At Waterloo, he collaborated with professor Norm SCOTT and the Centre for Learning and Teaching Through Technology -- or LT3 -- to create a program that allows biology students to dissect frogs in a virtual environment, on computer, without harming a single amphibian.
After moving to Stirling, north of Belleville, Ontario, and beginning a family there, Jonathan made fast and strong Friends in the local amateur theatre community. He helped get couch-potato parents off the sofa for an adult soccer league and coached in the Stirling and District Minor Soccer League. But Jonathan truly came to the fore on the ski slopes of Ontario.
Batawa Ski Club holds many memories of Jonathan. During the winter he was either on the road, at a ski race, over by the fireplace talking earnestly with a parent, sitting at a table with his family and Friends or on the hill having a great time with his racers.
At a moving and funny, yet surreal, memorial service for Jonathan at the tatty but active ski club in May, one of Jonathan's closest Friends and fellow Batawa racing coach, Jeff DURISH, remembered Jonathan's dual sense of duty and of fun: "The Rookie program, for children not old enough to travel with a league team, had fallen on hard times and nobody had run it for a number of years. Jonathan phoned me and talked me into helping him revive the program. Helping Jonathan was one of the best decisions that I have ever made. I always meant to thank him for it, now I wish I had."
Jonathan would always show up to practice with a backpack full of beanbags, ropes and bungee cords, his arms full of bamboo poles and his head full of crazy ideas. All the other coaches would scratch their heads and marvel at the weird and wonderful drills he came up with -- four kids hanging onto a bamboo pole doing 360s down the hill, racers hanging onto long ropes as they carved big turns around beanbags. Those crazy beanbags were always strewn across the hill.
Of course there were always the weird songs and dances to go along with the drills. It was effective, it was amazing, it was silly, it was fun, it was wonderful and full of joy -- it was Jonathan.
"Jonathan was an exceptional coach because he was a great teacher, an inventor and a child at heart," said brother-in-law Rob TERRY.
Jonathan leaves wife Mary Ellen, daughter Jenny Lee and son Joseph, as well as scores of grateful soccer kids, skiers and leopard frogs everywhere who croak their thanks for a life well lived.
Chris MALETTE is a ski dad who shared a mug or two of hot chocolate with Jonathan SWALLOW.
