 Jon Harstone Death, Cause Of Death – After a wonderful and full life Jon Harstone passed away on January 1st, 2022 in Toronto at the age of 71. Jon is one of three children born to Jack and Carla Harstone and predeceases his three siblings Joyce, Alex, and Greg. In 1969 Jon moved to Toronto to attend University where he met his first wife, Penelope Winter with whom they share four loving children Colin, Suzanne, Neil, and Rachel who will miss him dearly. Toronto is also the city where he met Deborah Aaron his second love who for most of the last two decades of his life shared his love of cycling, traveling, and food.

Jon spent his entire life working and advocating for affordable access to housing for those who needed it. In his early career he worked at the Co-op Housing Federation of Toronto and was a founding member of Homestarts, where he was involved in the development of 29 housing co-ops in and around Toronto. In 1992 he started working at Colandco Co-operative Housing Land Trust which owned the lands that 13 housing co-ops were situated on. In 1999 he founded St. Clare’s Multifaith Housing Society, which by the end of his career had built or renovated over 400 affordable units in Toronto.

We are saddened to hear of the loss of Jon Harstone, who was deeply involved in the co-operative housing movement since the 1970s, and was instrumental in the founding of @stclare_housing. Jon Harstone’s beautiful legacy will always be remembered #coophousing #torontohousing #CHFT #Toronto #Ontario #Canada.
