  • Notes 
    • Jock died in a car accident while driving home for Christmas. He was very active in student life at the University of Ottawa as President of the AGEUO (Association generale des etudiants de l'universite d'Ottawa). The Student Union building at the university is named after him.

      York University wishes to convey its deepest sympathy to the University of Ottawa for the loss of the President of their Student Council, Jock Turcot, who was killed Christmas Day in a highway collision. Mr. Turcot with his dynamic personality and fiery bilingual oratory powers was keenly interested in uniting the French and English forces in the
      Student Body at Ottawa. All those who have known him will realize the significance of this loss, the loss of a potential
      leader of our country. Source: ProTem - Student weekly: York University, January 14th, 1966

      The Jock Turcot University Centre, between Montpetit Hall and the central library, was completed in 1973. Planned for many years, its eventual construction cost over $6 million. Named for Jock Turcot, Students? Federation President and an avid supporter of plans for the centre, it was designed as a gathering place for the entire campus community. Turcot was killed in an automobile accident during Christmas break 1965, the year the first plans for the centre were submitted. Construction costs were partially offset by money contributed to the Jock Turcot Memorial Fund, set up by University of Ottawa students. Source: University of Ottawa website.
