Imran Jaffer was known for his unwavering love for his family and friends, strong leadership, and his uncanny ability to bring a positive perspective to every person in any situation. He lit every room he entered with his beautiful smile and infectious laughter and radiated energy that brought happiness all around. His zest for life endeared him to all who were fortunate enough to have met him.
As a respected leader, loyal friend and beloved classmate, Imran touched many lives during his time at Bayview Glen and Western University. Imran chose Western for its highly regarded Business and Urban Development programs. He was an incredibly well-rounded student, advancing his academic studies while balancing his volunteer work with MEDLIFE in London and the Aga Khan Volunteer Corps in Toronto as well as his participation in Western’s intramural soccer teams and his active participation in the Cancer Awareness Society for fundraising.
