January 19, 1971 – December 10, 2022
It is with immense sorrow that we announce the sudden and devastating passing of Jason Cain on December 10th 2022 at the age of 51 due to unexpected health complications.
Jason was born in Revelstoke BC before moving to Kamloops at the age of 2. As a child he loved to roam the woods with his dog. At the age of 9 his younger brother Jeremy was born. Unable to say brother he began calling Jason “Bubb”, which became a lifelong family nickname. Jason went on to attend Arthur Stevenson Elementary and graduated from Norkam high school.
Even as a young man he was driven and hardworking, starting his work life at Mr. Mike’s restaurant as a cook, and later an associate at Woolco. He was also involved in the community from a young age coaching his brother’s youth softball teams and volunteering at the SPCA, the beginning of his life-long love of animals.
After starting his family, Jason moved to Edson, Alberta to begin his career with Loblaws. He spent many years in Edson managing the local store while watching his children grow. He later moved to High Level, Alberta but it was always his dream to return home to Kamloops and he did so in 2015 after purchasing Cain’s Independent Grocery store.
He was a proud advocate for the North Shore community, joining the North Shore Business Improvement Association and working to support initiatives and opportunities for community improvement. He hosted events for children and families at the store and took part in various community wide events and youth sponsorships. He was passionate about giving back to his community and offering employment opportunities to those with disabilities. He enjoyed partnerships with the Open-Door Group and Kamloops Food Bank, to name a few.
In his personal life, Jason always had an interest in comic books and science fiction. He was an avid collector of all things batman and was always on the look-out for the newest addition. Jason was also a huge sports fan and closely followed his teams: the Miami Dolphins, Pittsburgh Penguins, and Toronto Blue Jays. He shared a love of cars and racing that was passed down to him from his dad, and always enjoyed driving something fast, most recently his red convertible.
Jason leaves behind his wife Christine, daughter Courtney, son Brandon, stepdaughter Niki, mother Patricia, brother Jeremy (Michelle), nephew Logan, and his adopted brother Dan. He is predeceased by his father Michael.
Jason was an unbelievably supportive, kind, generous, and humble person. He showed an incredible dedication to his family, and was a wonderful father, husband, son, brother, and uncle. He was always there for anyone who needed him and made a positive impact on the lives of all who knew him. His absence will be immeasurable, but we are grateful for the time we had with him, and the many memories that will sustain us in the years to come. Although we will remain, our hearts will forever be with him. Goodbye to our beloved Jason, may you be at peace.
An informal celebration of life will be held at the North Kamloops Holiday Inn,
December 29th, 2022 between 1-4pm.
The community is welcome to drop in during that timeframe to visit and share your memories of Jason.

I was just talking to him. It seems unreal.

Thinking of the Cain’s today. Jason was a very honest and frank communicator to me through the years I knew him. He will be missed for those attributes.
