I have had the privilege of working with Jack Saddleback, 26, for the past five years, since he first became a volunteer for the University of Saskatchewan Students' Union. 

Since then, Saddleback has spent two years as the Pride Centre coordinator, a year as vice president of student affairs, and one year as president.

In my capacity as general manager of the University of Saskatchewan Students' Union, I have watched Jack grow and develop into a remarkable advocate for undergraduate students, for transgendered people, for those struggling with mental health issues, and for victims of sexual assault. 

Jack has done all of this while sitting as a member of the University of Saskatchewan's Board of Governors, working with University Students Council and other student leaders across campus and while being called upon to present at conferences, accept speaking engagements, and work with innumerable grassroots organizations.
