The Redeemer University College community is in shock as it mourns the sudden passing of John Krueger on Friday, March 23. John had worked in Redeemer’s Student Life department since 1990, providing academic support and career counselling to thousands of students over the years. John was 58 years old and leaves behind his wife, Martha, a son Nathan, and a daughter Rachel. This is a devastating loss for John’s family, his colleagues — especially in Student Life — and the many students with whom he interacted and for whom he provided support on so many levels. John was a staff member and vocational counselor at Redeemer University College for 23 years. He found great satisfaction in helping students with their studies, career planning, and personal problems. John embraced life and learning with passion. He loved nature, music, books, writing, physical activity, and valued the joy and risk of nurturing relationships. He will be deeply missed by all who loved and knew him. As a grieving university community, we share in the suffering of John’s family and friends. This is also a reminder of our participation in the suffering of our Lord for us — but with the confident hope of the resurrection. We ask all friends of John and Redeemer to remember John’s family and friends through this difficult time.
