It is with great sadness that we announce the unexpected passing of Rochelle Koskie, the wife of Ray Koskie, one of the founders of Koskie Minsky LLP. Rochelle was instrumental in the tremendous success of Ray’s legal career and tireless in her efforts to promote our firm and support all of its members. Most recently, she championed the establishment of the Jazz Education and Performance Centre (JPEC), which seeks to promote the preservation, performance and education of Canadian jazz throughout our community. Rochelle was a warm, interested and energetic person and will be greatly missed. Our thoughts go out to Ray and the rest of the Koskie family.
Her family and friends have established the Rochelle Koskie Jazz Student Scholarship Fund in her memory. Those wishing to make a donation can do so through the Benjamin Foundation:
