Jeff Cannon '89 was a dedicated, ambitious, outgoing and fun loving person, respected and admired by his peers. While at Bishop's Jeff was actively involved in student life, his community and an integral member of the golf team. Upon graduation Jeff lived out his dream of becoming a touring golf professional. He was killed tragically in July 1992 in a car accident while returning home from a Canadian Tour Golf Tournament.

Since 1992 the Jeff Cannon Memorial Golf Tournaments have raised money to support students at Bishop’s University. The Jeff Cannon Memorial Fund contributes to the success of our golf program, two $1,000 entering scholarships, as well as an annual $1,000 award at Convocation (The Jeff Cannon Memorial Award). In September 2005, a Short Iron Range Facility will be completed at the Old Lennoxville Course. This facility was constructed to further the development of amateur golfers, something Jeff would have been proud of, and serve as a lasting memory of Jeff Cannon. It will be inaugurated at the Homecoming tournament.
