A fundraiser has been organized in support of the Mary Lake Marina and the Heemskerk family in light of the recent and unexpected passing of Jack Heemskerk, 61, owner and operator of Mary Lake Marina.
Contributions will help ensure the continued success of Mary Lake Marina/Boat & Watercraft Rentals, and alleviate some of the challenges the Heemskerk family will face as they navigate their first season in business without Jack, the backbone of the business. Mary Lake Marina is an integral part of the Mary Lake community, and the only marina on the lake, and friend, client as well as marina neighbour Emily Todd has started a gofundme fundraiser to help the family carry the business.
“Your support will enable the Heemskerks to hire any necessary staff they may require to keep their businesses operating without Jack, complete some of the work that Jack was responsible for, and show your support and appreciation for Jack’s contributions to the community, neighbors and friends,” notes Todd in the gofundme page.
