In Memoriam - Jenna Ostberg


Employee Community
Student Community

It is with profound sadness that we share the heartbreaking news of the passing of Jenna Ostberg, a recent graduate from our College Access program. Jenna was 21 years old, and her passing comes as a shock to all of us in the Confederation College community and beyond. Jenna's presence will be dearly missed, and we extend our deepest sympathies to all who knew and loved her.


We will be lowering our flags to half-mast this afternoon in remembrance of Jenna and the light she brought into the lives of those around her.


We want to ensure that our students, faculty, and staff are aware of the support services available to them:


  • Our Crisis Response Navigator is ready to assist anyone in need and can be reached through College Security at 922.
  • On-site counsellors are available for students, along with additional support through each department.
