David had a passion for athletes who competed at the top of their game while honouring Jesus Christ in all things. He was a strong advocate for using lessons in sport as a springboard for meaningful discussions about faith and life.
“Dave was an example of Christian character to the entire Redeemer community both on and off the field. He dedicated himself to developing Redeemer student athletes, preparing them to follow Christ as they pursued excellence in sport and in their careers. We are honoured to celebrate his life and share his legacy through the scholarship."
David Zietsma, interim president
