GWU Alumnus and Canadian MP Jim Hillyer passes away

by Admin on March 23, 2016

It is with deep sadness that we learned this morning of the passing of Jim Hillyer, a GWU alumnus who many of us knew and loved.  Jim tirelessly served to move the cause of liberty and we’re grateful for all the good he was able to accomplish in his brief sojourn in this life.  Jim was dutifully serving in his second term as a member of the Canadian Parliament and was also a devoted husband and father.  Our hearts go out to his wife Livi, their four children, as well as his extended family and many friends in both Canada and the U.S.  Jim was a committed supporter of the school and a good friend with whom we had remained in close contact.  He will be deeply missed.

Please view the kind and touching tribute held by the Canadian Parliament.
