For a very brief time, Nicholas Greeson was a student in the Funeral Director Program. Nick had been battling cancer for 6 years and was still doing so when he began his time at Humber in 2019. Unfortunately, his time in the program was cut short by his illness and he passed away at the age of twenty-three. Nick had been extremely excited about the program and had made up his mind a couple of years into his cancer treatment, that working with the bereaved was something he was passionate about; he was certain he could make a difference for people going through some of the most difficult times in their lives. Nick had looked death squarely in the eye, facing it with great dignity, reserve and strength. He had immense compassion and genuine empathy for those who suffered and the suffering who were left behind. Nick was a much-loved individual. In turn, Nick loved people, travel, animals, the outdoors, music, making connections and was determined to live life to the fullest no matter what circumstances he was given. This memorial award recognizes individuals in the funeral program who have faced serious health issues with strength and courage and yet who are passionate and determined to help others in some of the darkest moments of their lives.
