A teenager known for his kindness and athleticism allegedly killed by his father is being mourned by friends and classmates.
Sir John A. MacDonald Grade 8 student Jason Louie, 13, and his nine-year-old sister Jane were allegedly slain by their father in their Panorama Hills Place NW home on Friday night.
Their mother is recovering from her injuries.
Friends and classmates, old and new, gathered on a R.I.P. Facebook memorial page to share memories of their friend who was taken far too soon, according to close friend Wajimaa Amirii.
“He was a great guy, he always made everyone smile and he would always encourage us to do our best. He was nice to everyone and I can’t think of one person who dislikes him,” Amirii told Metro.
“We wish he didn’t have to go now because he was too young. I still can’t believe it,” he added.
Other friends remembered Louie for being good at sports and shared fond memories, including Quinn Thurbide who remembered sliding with his friend on the ice at Cardel Arena.
“So Jason starts sliding on the ice with his shoes on and there we are bumming around while our friends are looking down at us and laughing,” he said.
Students at Louie’s school are organizing a memorial assembly, according to the students.
James Bing Jun Louie has been charged with two counts of second-degree murder and attempted murder.
