NMMA MOURNS THE LOSS OF ROSS JARDINE, NMMA CANADA HALL OF FAME RECIPIENT

Ross Jardine

 

May 30, 2016

NMMA is sad to share the news that Ross Campion Jardine, former General Manager of Campion Marine and NMMA Canada Hall of Fame recipient, has passed away.

Ross dedicated his career to helping grow recreational boating while creating a thriving business in Canada and internationally. His dedication to recreational boating and leadership over the years had a significant, positive impact on the marine industry.

At Campion Marine, Ross was instrumental in charting the course for Campion to grow internationally and to eventually become Canada’s largest independently owned fiberglass powerboat builder. Ross, along with his son, Rex Jardine, introduced numerous boat lines and models to the world of powerboating. The Chase line of Campion high performance boats was essential to the introduction of the APEX Hull – now used on almost every Campion model.

On behalf of NMMA, we offer our deepest sympathies to the family on their loss.

Even in the event of an onboard power failure, a Ritchie Navigation SuperSport Helmsman SS-1002 magnetic compass still works. Plus, when the vessel is moving slowly in fog or while trolling, it can do something a GPS can’t: show the actual heading in real time. As a back-up to modern electronics, it’s a vital navigational tool that belongs on every commercial and recreational boat.
