Lightning-strike victim was promising young man
By Siri AGRELL, Page L2
In March, Michael JURIST told a campus paper at Georgetown University that he had been impressed by visiting Nobel Peace Prize winner Mohammad Yunus.
"It was inspiring because he was humble," he said of the economist's address.
This week, Friends of the 22-year-old Toronto man described Mr. JURIST in similar terms following his sudden death. He was struck by lightning last week near his family's vacation home in Hilton Head, S.C.
Accomplished, attractive and intelligent, Mr. JURIST was described most often by those who knew him as being humble, an uncommon virtue in the realm of tony private schools, Ivy League colleges and job offers in New York and London to which Mr. JURIST had propelled himself.
A recent graduate of Georgetown's Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service living in New York, Mr. JURIST was an only child, raised in Toronto by his parents Paul and Vesna. His mother, who was walking with him on the beach, was also hit by the lightning strike but did not suffer serious physical injuries.
"They started to head back when they saw the storm coming," Joheida Fister, a spokeswoman for the Town of Hilton head Island Fire and Rescue Division, told the local media. "I guess it came too quickly."
Mr. JURIST attended Upper Canada College, where he played tennis and was elected by his peers as the head of McHugh House.
At university in Washington, D.C., he volunteered with the Corp, a non-profit campus corporation that provides students with low-cost goods and services, and acted as chairman of Georgetown's lecture fund, where he brought high-profile speakers to campus.
Last October, he was called upon to soothe the student outcry sparked by the impending address of a controversial guest, Chris Simcox, president of the Minutemen Civil Defense Corps, an anti-immigration group.
"I recognize that he's a controversial figure and that some people may have a problem with him. But his group has played a major role in the mainstream," Mr. JURIST told the campus newspaper at the time. "And I hope everyone respects our rights to bring someone who represents another side of the debate."
It was this passionate, measured intelligence that was most remarkable to his Friends and school mates.
"You hear it so often when there's a tragedy like this, that it couldn't have happened to a nicer guy, but there's not too many guys out there that were nicer than him," said Mike ANNECCHINI, a Toronto resident who went to Upper Canada College with Mr. JURIST and described his former classmate as a natural leader.
When Mr. ANNECCHINI lost the position of head of house to Mr. JURIST, he remembers his friend, the immensely popular, athletic student who would ace his Scholastic Assessment Tests and pass up admission to Harvard, telling him bashfully: "You really should have got it."
On Facebook, hundreds of Friends of the Toronto man formed mourning groups and planned gatherings in New York and Washington to pay tribute to his memory.
In Toronto, a memorial will be held at Upper Canada College's Laidlaw Hall tonight at 6 p.m.
John BITOVE, a former neighbour of the JURIST family, said his sons, 19 and 17, are devastated by the loss of their childhood playmate.
"He was a great role model for my two boys," he said. "He was just a very well-mannered, respectful, wonderful child. The model child."
