It is with deep regret and sadness that we share the news of the sudden passing of our President, Jeff Knapp. He passed away on August 8th.
Jeff became a member of the CCCE in 2016 and joined the Board as the Program Director in 2017 where he was responsible for planning our monthly events; providing networking opportunities and engaging speakers to present to our members. In 2018, Jeff became Membership Director. In 2019, Jeff became President of the CCCE and continued his role in 2020 until his passing.
Jeff valued family; he adored his wife, Nicole, and deeply loved his two daughters, Kaitlyn and Hailey. When his wife became ill, he was by her side daily to help her through her recovery, and he showed his appreciation to the doctors and nurses who cared for her through his many kind actions, including gifts and meals. It was important to him that he looked after those who looked after his wife and his family. Jeff’s family was everything to him and when he spoke of them, you could sense the important role they filled in his life and the depth of his love.
We are in shock that Jeff is no longer with us. Jeff was an easy going person with a great sense of humour, a calm presence, and a positive outlook on life. We offer our condolences and support to his family during this very difficult time. We will miss him dearly.
