Jon-Selby Zachariah Trupp

November 24, 1986 - June 23, 2017


Jon-Selby Zachariah Trupp, died unexpectedly on June 23rd, 2017, in his Vancouver home. Jon-Selby was 30 years old. Truly one-of-a-kind, his zest for life was unparalleled and his dedication to all that he loved was both admirable and enviable.


Jon-Selby will be eternally missed by his Fiance and devoted Soul Mate of 10 years, Kasandra Beecroft, of Vancouver; Parents, Don and Teri Trupp of Nelson; Sister, Cerise Dio-enne, of Nelson; Aunt, Heather Rennison (Brian) of Drayton Valley; Uncle Leonard Arcovio (Laura) of Calgary; Uncle John Arcovio (Janet) of Nelson; Uncle Joe Arcovio, of Nelson; Uncle Mario Arcovio, of Nelson; Cousins Nick Rennison (Lisa), Chris Rennison (Cheryl), Astra Hoffert (Chris), and Hugh MacDonald, all of Drayton Valley; Cousins Dan Arcovio (Mathea), of Nelson, Stefano Arcovio (Allison), of Calgary, Selena Arcovio, of Edmonton, and Carlo Arcovio, of Calgary; Robert and Katherine Beecroft, of Victoria; Kendra Beecroft, of Vancouver; and so many very special friends from Vancouver, Victoria, and points beyond.


Jon-Selby was born November 24th, 1986 at the Victoria General Hospital and grew up in Drayton Valley where his artistic vision was constantly encouraged, especially by his father. Jon-Selby moved to Victoria in 2004 with his parents and found his way into Vancouver Island’s electronic music scene, with DJ residency’s at Evolution and Prism Nightclubs. Jon’s approach to sound and music was unconventional, to say the least, and his knowledge and spherical understanding was inherently unique.


When Jon met Kasandra he truly blossomed, she was the spark that lit the fire within him. Jon was steadfastly devoted to Kasandra and their enduring love inspired Jon in profound ways. They began a new chapter together in Vancouver where Jon discovered his love for gastronomy: the practice or, art of choosing, cooking, and eating great food. Jon-Selby recently attended the VCC Culinary School, where he graduated at the top of his class. Jon- Selby easily mastered the kitchen and, his knowledge was vast; outstanding. Classmates called him “Selby-Pedia” in deference to his vast store of information. Jon-Selby Zachariah Trupp lived and loved to epic proportions and, his intelligence and creativity knew no-bounds. Indeed, he was transcendent, had an insatiable lust for life and, his ‘joi de vive ‘ will be forever missed.


A Memorial Service was held in Nelson, British Columbia, followed by interment of his cremains in Nelson Memorial Park For further information, please contact: Thompson’s Funeral Home, (250)352-3613.  Online condolences may be expressed at www.thompsonfs.ca

*A private celebration of Kasandra and Jon’s life together will be held in Vancouver on September 16th, 2017, ‘The day they were meant to be Married’

Please know that I hold you all in my heart with profound compassion for this time of loss. Jon-Selby was indeed a precious soul and I am so happy to have been a part of his life. It has been a pleasure reading his friend’s sharing on Facebook about their experiences with him. He lived fully, was an inspiration to many, and and loved deeply.
