"Paper & pen will feel shy in front of the best qualities about Bhaji Jasbinder Singh. Even though bhaji came to our life only few years ago. But every moment we spent with bhaji will be memorial for us. We all enjoyed his good sense of humor. We should try to carry bahji`s noble dream to help needy and less fortunate ones. Be positive always like bhaji! Inderjit S., Kulwinder & Damandeep Bains"

"Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal.

Our Dearest Massarjee,

A humble kind happy dedicated man, so kind so sweet so gentle were just some of the amazing qualities you had. Such a sad loss to lose an indivdual with nothing but love for everyone around him. You are someone we look up to someone we were blessed to have in our lives.
You will always be in our thoughts and never be forgotten.
May you rest in peace Massarjee.


God saw you getting tired
And a cure was not to be
So he put His arms around you
And whispered "Come to me."

With tearful eyes we watched you
As you slowly slipped away
And though we loved you dearly
We couldn't make you stay.

Your golden heart stopped beating
Your tired hands put to rest
God broke our hearts to prove to us
He only takes the BEST.

"Massarji was a great person. An individual who was respected by everyone around him. A man who always had a smile on his face. A person who would always make you laugh no matter the situation. He touched so many peoples lives. He was a person everyone looked up to.  Always cared about other feelings and a person who would never judge anyone. I always remember at all our family parties he and his wife were always the first to start dancing. Always getting everyone in the party mood. He would always have so much fun and be a fun person to be around. He will always be a person no one will ever forget. He was such a loving husband, a devoted father, a wonderful son and brother. He leaves behind a wonderful family and I know you will all be a great source of comfort and support to one another. Massarji we will miss you so much and you will never be forgotten!"

"Jasbinder and I spent alot of time together playing badminton and soccer during his PhD. Those were happy days purifying CT in the Vance lab (and I remember his wedding banquet!), where I knew Jasbinder to be a great friend, scientist, and family man. My deepest condolences to Kaljeet and all the Sanghera family."

"My Big Bro. I was heart broken when I heard the news. I returned to Canada last year in August after 15 years especially to meet my Bhaji. I organised to stay with him, see his lab and my biggest day was Rakhri. I spent ages finding he right Rakhri for him as he was very special and dear to me. When I left  was crying and he has 'Parwinder why are you doing that'. I said 'Bhaji  I don't want to leave you, I feel as if I won't see you again'. He said 'don't be silly I'm organising my daughter's wedding and you shall be back'. But I couldn't help it and cried. My instinct now proves I was right. That's what makes it even hard for me. Those days n moments spent together were very special. He played football with my son and nephews. They loved Bhaji, such a busy person but down to earth. I had to struggle to get the boys to leave. I realised Bhaji joined what's app on 2nd Jan, I text him straight away telling him 'I really miss u'. He didn't ever reply but I do hope he got to read my message. Its taken me a while to post a message but I've only been able to do this now after a friend said to me 'Pam ur bro has gone to another, even better place where he'll be reborn and is needed a lot more there than with us!' I pray and hope he is reborn in Derby close to us. I can't say bye and await to meet Bhaji again soon.....Pam"

"Dearest Mamaji,
Thank you for being the most genuine, loving, wise, generous, honest, and humble person in my life.  It is so hard to believe that you have left us forever, I will try to understand, as you said to me "this is God's way of seeing how close we are to him." You always knew how to make me smile and give me the confidence to face any obstacle in my life. We have lost the heart and soul of our family, only you were able to bring us all together. I can't tell you how much I will miss having you in my life. I know you will always be looking down on us and be here with us in spirit. I will always remember your amazing, uplifting smile. I love you soo much Mamaji."

"I still can not believe that god has taken my older bhaji from me. I have many childhood memories of us, I used to come and stay with you all in London. I still remember being so upset when you moved to Canada. Now bhaji you have gone too far from me, you left me once, now you have left me forever... I can not describe my feelings but all I can say is that I will miss you so so much. You will remain in my heart forever...
Love from your sister, Gurwinder

"You will always be remembered as our humble, kind hearted, noble Chachaji.  You were the rock for our family, always taking care of others, and always keeping the family connected. You worked your whole life to enrich the lives of others, and for that we are forever grateful.  We loved you a lot Chachaji, but god loved you more."

""No farewell words were spoken, no time to say goodbye, you were gone before we knew it and only God knows why".
Jaswinder bharji was our big brother. There are so many fond memories growing up together. Bharji was a beautiful person inside and out. Bharji touched so many lives.
Live by his example - be strong, caring, giving and loving.
He will sorely missed by all. He is forever in our hearts and memories. May he rest peace. Xxx"

"Pa, can't believe you're gone, I feel so sad and sorry thinking about this tragedy. I'm remembering back to when we were young, me still being one of the youngest on Mum's side of the family. I remember we used to all look up to you for guidance and wisdom. In some ways you were like a father figure to all of us when we were growing up. I remember back to when our families owned the clothes factory on Ilford Lane. You used to keep an eye on me and Suka when we used to play outside, making sure we're not getting into any trouble. I also remember when I came to visit you guys in Canada in 1995. You showed us around your research office and we had a good old laugh catching up and making fun of bhabi. It's small details like that coming back to me since I heard the news of your passing.

In hindsight I wish we all had caught up more often, regardless living on different continents.

You were a kind hearted, strong and brave man. I'll miss you very much and I am sure every person that knew you will too."

"Masserji was the type of person that you wanted to be like but never could. I remember when I was a little kid and we would have birthday parties, we would always wait for him to come so he could make a movie of it all. There are so many memories I have of him. He honestly was the sweetest and most caring person I know. I will miss you masserji, RIP."

"Massarji was one of a kind, he will be deeply missed by all who knew him he has left a big void In so many hearts. What moves through us is a silence, a quiet sadness, a longing for one more day, one more word, one more touch. We may not understand why he left this earth so soon, or why he left before we were ready to say good-bye, but little by little, we begin to remember not just that he passed away but that he lived. We will cherish the memories which are too beautiful to forget. Thankyou for being such a wonderful Massarji to us all lots of love Sonia, Pruv, Jaidan, Avi & Ashi xxx"

"Pa was more then a brother, he was always a guider. Always willing to offer wisdom or advise. An individual one could always count on. For me he was a pillar of strength, a mentor, a brother who always stood behind you. There are no words to describe how much he will be missed. He will always be in our hearts and our thoughts. RIP jas.."

"We are all but candles in the wind, yet so few of us will leave anything beyond a small imprint of our existence in this world. Jas veer ji, is leaving a huge legacy of greatness. To have known him was akin to having been touched by an angel. Behind his quiet unassuming persona was a man of true greatness.. Kind, compassionate,honest and selfless in his guidance and service to others, he will remain unforgettable.
His melodious laughter and joie de vivre remain etched in our memories and will serve as  constant reminders to us of the true purpose of our life.
As we say goodbye to his physical form, we salute the scientist, mourn the loss of a great humanist and hope to emulate his compassion and philanthropy. Veer ji, you will be missed but never forgotten."

"Jas Chachaji had the biggest heart and loved all of us so much. He was a rare soul and we all looked up to him.What a hole that has been left!

You were brilliant and had the best spirit. Rest in peace. We will miss you forever."

"Paji, born with a heart of gold and some of the best soccer and crickets skills I have seen growing up. He was my big brother, a mentor and a friend. He would joke with us, discipline us,  even chase us with a cricket bat. He was family who leaves behind memories that are engrained deep. Golden memories we will cherish, but he will be missed every day xxx"

"Jasbinder was a truly good person, and dedicated to his family and friends.  He did not choose the easy path but always struggled to build things and improve them.  I recognized him as a biotech community leader, and enjoyed working with him at Kinetek and again, later when he started Metasignal."

"It is unfortunate God took away such a contributing and loving soul. You are admired and forever in our hearts Jas. You were a strong man, and a loving member of our family. You made every effort to keep our families united and genuinely cared for all of us. I wish you had shared your problems with me so we all could have supported you. But it was in your determined nature to remain calm, smile and carry on with your life. I love you and think about you everyday.

Your sister,

Amarjit Olak"

"Such a great loss. He helped so many people and had a great impact on my and my family life. Rest in Peace dear Jas."

"Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free
I'm following the path God laid for me.
I took His hand when I heard him call;
I turned my back and left it all.
I could not stay another day,
To laugh, to love, to work or play.
Tasks left undone must stay that way;
I found that place at the close of the day.
If my parting has left a void,
Then fill it with remembered joy.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss;
Ah yes, these things, I too will miss.
Be not burdened with times of sorrow
I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
My life's been full, I savored much;
Good friends, good times, a loved ones touch.
Perhaps my time seems all too brief;
Don't lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up your heart and share with me,
God wanted me now, He set me free.

-Janice M. Fair-Salters"

"I lack the ability to say it better than Guru Gobind Singh Ji, when he spoke of his slain father's body:

---

     'He gave his head but never cried in pain...
     A victor's welcome given by the hosts of heaven.'

---

May you enjoy the light of Waheguru."

"What is the cycle of life and death? Where did we come from? Where do we go? What is the purpose of our conscious existence? Questions come gushing forward when a dear one departs.Jas Bhaji's departure (just on the heels of other recent demises) brings the cloudiness of such questions back. However, all it takes is a remembrance of the inspirational qualities of this gentle soul, and the clouds dissipate. While I did not get a chance to spend too much time with Jas Bhaji, our interactions paved a path of mutual respect. His gentle demeanor encapsulated a brilliant man with lot of ambition, a family man with lot of love, and a businessman with lot of empathy. While the scourge of cancer might be laughing at this short-term victory in vanquishing Jas Bhaji's body, I pray for Jas Bhaji's legacy, his cancer research and his dream to live on in having that last laugh of victory. Knowing him, it will not be a laugh to mock, but a smile to acknowledge. Rest in peace, Bhaji. You are in a better place. Hoping for you to be one of the "five people I meet in heaven." Adios for now ...."

"My hero, my noble and humble brother who devoted is life in making others happy. I will miss your awesome smile and laughter that we shared.  You were my Pa, I was blessed that I had you as my brother.  I know you are looking down on us with a big smile, if only I could hug once more and tell you how much our lives will be empty without you."

"Jas was like a brother. He was so wise and so intelligent but also so much fun. My favorite memory is dancing with him at Serena's graduation party. I did not know he had the dance moves !! He was such a caring person and you could see that from the way he loved his family. His passion to make this world a better place was inspirational. I cannot express how much he will be missed. I Know he is in a better place. I will forever remember him.
Jas thank you for being part of my life. Thank you for your smile when I came to see you last week. Thank you for making the world a better place. Love you Jas."
