1938 - 2014

It is with great sadness that family and friends must announce the passing of Dr. Jack Stein in Toronto on December 27, 2014. Jack was the deputy Chief of Staff at Scarborough General Hospital for many years (1995 to 2007) and prior to that he was Chief of Medicine. His positions of leadership reflected his remarkable talent for connecting and communicating with colleagues and patients. He was known by many trainees at the University of Toronto where he was an Assistant Professor of Medicine. He was a clinical teacher affiliated with the Division of Rheumatology at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre. Perhaps the greatest testament to his example of achievement and professionalism is the fact that two of his sons, Michael and Jonathan have become rheumatologists.

We wish his family our condolences and sympathy. Jack was held in high esteem and regarded with great affection by all who knew him, and his passing is a loss to us all.
