Please join me in offering condolences to family and friends of retired staff member James (Jim) McMorran, who passed away on Saturday, Nov. 9, 2019 in Fredericton, NB. He was 76.

Originally from St. Stephen, NB, Jim served with the Canadian Armed Forces for 27 years. Throughout his career, he served with the Canadian Guards and the Royal Canadian Regiment, which included two UN peacekeeping tours in Cyprus. In September 1988, Jim began working as a patrol member with campus security at UNB Fredericton. He retired as traffic supervisor in February 2001 after 12 years of service.

Jim is remembered by former colleagues as always upbeat, with a good sense of humour. He spent much of his spare time playing golf and darts—even travelling across the country to compete in dart tournaments. He was a member of the Masonic Lodge, the Royal Canadian Legion Petawawa Branch #517 and Oromocto Branch #93.

A celebration of life was held at The S.O. Mehan & Son Funeral Home Ltd. in St. Stephen, NB on Thursday, Nov. 14. Condolences can be made online. Flags have been lowered on both the Fredericton and Saint John campuses. Jim will be missed by all who knew him and our thoughts are with his family.


Dr. Paul J. Mazerolle

President and Vice-Chancellor
