Just one month before James’s nineteenth birthday we have heard sad news that he is no longer with us. James was a great table tennis player, and an even better person. He always had a smile on his face, and worked hard within the table tennis community. He was a Canadian Champion, a dedicated player, and a talented umpire. James always brought his bright personality to matches, worked hard to learn everything he could about the sport, and made many friends at tournaments and games. Our condolences go out to the family and friends of James Yu, he was an incredible person and he will be greatly missed.
