Jaxon Joseph Memorial Scholarship


Who was Jaxon Joseph

The Jaxon Joseph Memorial Scholarship was created in 2018 by the Podallan Pub in memory of Jaxon Joseph. The intent is to recognize the contributions of a 2nd or 3rd Year U18 Fort McMurray Minor Hockey Player.

Jaxon Christopher Joseph, born in Edmonton, Alberta on September 15, 1997, passed away tragically at the age of 20, while travelling with his Humboldt Broncos family on April 6, 2018.

Jaxon spent his life doing what he loved - playing hockey. Jaxon's big heart, his charming smile, and his warm, loving personality touched many and left lasting impressions. Jaxon loved all dogs, especially his "Sam". His other passions included spending time with his family, summers at the lake and hanging out with the boys.

Jaxon’s Dad said that his son was “never the star, never the grinder, but very flexible…every team he’s played on, he’s always been described as a glue guy.”

The Scholarship will be awarded annually to one or more 2nd or 3rd year Fort McMurray Minor Hockey Players who have demonstrated similar characteristics as Jaxon Joseph; a love of hockey, a love of family and a love of friends. The player who may not be the star on the ice, but is respected and known by his teammates for being the “glue guy.”
