It is with deep sadness and profound respect that EWB recognizes the passing of Caroline Kosmas.  Caroline was an inspirational chapter member, passionate community leader, medecine graduate, friend to countless, and wife of Andrew Jansen (one of the founding members of the EWB USask chapter.)  Overflowing with hope, laughter, and ambition, she was an inspiration for all of us.

Caroline helped plan the very first Scala Gala (the chapter's first fundraising banquet), helped organize our first Western Regional Retreat, and carried countless boxes of BBQ supplies into the Engineering Building.  EWB is just one of many organizations that Caroline transformed; she was a creator and leader of women's programming at SWITCH, and a dedicated medical volunteer at the Saskatoon community clinics.  Most recently, she and Andrew were preparing to go to Zambia to launch a social entrepreneurial initiative.
 
Our hearts, thoughts, and prayers are with Andrew and the Kosmos and Jansen families.  Caroline was forever building communities and deep friendships around her; she will be sadly missed and forever loved.  She leaves a tremendous legacy of inspiration, service, and commitment in all the chapter members that knew her.
 
Caroline's friends and family have created a foundation in her memory. Inspired by the values she lived her life by, the funds will be donated to the kinds of social causes into which Caroline has poured so much of her time, energy, and love.
