In 2002, Jack Matheson, Ted's son, and Fred's father, passed away far too early.
Jack had been extremely active in the Prince Albert Community for over 40 years and was in his second term as councillor when he passed.
In addition to running a business, raising a family and being involved in politics, Jack's volunteer work was also endless: Kinsmen, Chamber of Commerce, Downtown Association, Canadian Cancer Society... the list goes on and on.
It was a real honour for the family when the city of Prince Albert decided to recognize Jack's enormous contribution. They decided to name a residential street after him: Jack Matheson Crescent.
Jack Matheson was a Prince Albert man, through and through. He never lived anywhere else, and would tell anyone who listened that his town was the very best.
