I had the great pleasure of working with Bob Jarosh at Nova Chemicals. Bob was one of the smartest and kindest people I have ever known. He had a wonderful sense of humour and always has a hilarious joke on the tip of his tongue. I will miss him.
My sincere condolences to Bob’s family.

Bob was probably the funniest person I have ever met. I was blessed to work on his team at Nova Chemicals - what a smart man. Whenever 4 am would hit on the night shift we would listen to the 'rage cage' metal radio station for a laugh. I will never forget him. My condolences to his family and friends.

Sincerely,
