Family and friends who spoke during the service and outside afterwards praised Hubley’s efforts to make life better for other gay teens.
Jamie’s friend, Luke Spiro, spoke in his eulogy about Hubley’s desire to create a club for gay teens at his high school, and outside the church his family and friends said his work would not go unfinished.
“I think Jamie would be happy to see that things are going to change for kids like him,” said Michaela Dorans, a friend and classmate at A.Y.Jackson High School in Ottawa.
