Jack O'Hara Endowed Bursary

Jack O'Hara began his career as an RCMP Officer and after 25 years of service, he retired as a Staff Sergeant. He then worked in private security and safety before joining the faculty of the School of Law and Justice in August 1986. Jack was the Program Coordinator for the Loss Prevention Management Program. Following his retirement in 1992, Jack remained dedicated to his students by establishing the Jack O'Hara award, given annually to the "most deserving" student in the Security and Risk Management program. Upon his death in April 2009, this bursary was allowed to continue as Jack bequeathed in his Will this gift as a lasting legacy left to the students of the School of Law and Justice.

Awarded to a domestic full-time student registered in the Protective Security Investigations Program who demonstrate financial need.
