Jehangir was a curious, creative and inspirational philosophy student who dedicated his time and work to the idea of ‘opening up’ and understanding chronic illness, finding strength in adversity and establishing creative and inclusive communities of understanding and support.
Born April 9, 1985, in Toronto he died June 28, 2013, in Toronto, due to complications from cystic fibrosis, aged 28.
He was unfailing in seeking to find true meaning in every encounter and relationship and he fostered a strong and deeply memorable sense of shared community among cystic fibrosis patients, families, caregivers and clinicians.
This page is dedicated to his memory. We encourage you to learn about Jehangir and the Annual Lecture series which has been established in his honor.
