It is with great sadness that we announce the accidental passing of Joseph Hackett, also known as “Jersey Joe”. He passed away in St-Anicet on October 12, 2021 at the age of 71. He leaves behind his beloved wife Lise Denis Hackett and will be missed by his sister-in-law Michèle, brother-in-law Bob Von Lang, his nieces Kristina (Mark) and Kimberly (Colin), his 5 great nieces and nephews, and his two beloved cats Dashiel and Salem.

Lise will welcome relatives and friends at J.J. Cardinal, 560 Lakeshore Dr., Dorval on Friday, October 22 from 10 AM to 12 PM and 1 PM to 3 PM for viewing followed by a service at 3 PM.

Joe taught for 35 years and after retiring became a supervising teacher at McGill. Joe loved teaching and he was appreciated by his students and colleagues. JJ was very passionate about music, writing songs, playing guitar, gaming, sports and his love of the ‘Lions’.


In lieu of flowers, please donate to ‘Dans la Rue’ a homeless youth organization.

    I was a student of Joe Hackett between 1975 and 1978 at RHS in Montreal. I never forgot his humor and energy, I still remember his voice! I would like to send my love to his wife Lise ! Joe lives in the hearts of many students!

    Dear Lise,
    I was a gaming friend of Joe’s and intend to see you, amongst perhaps many other faces whose lives were touched. I cannot your heartache and that there will remain many more days of reflecting about his character until we all meet again.
    Greatest sympathies for your loss, and gratitude for supporting him.

    Dear Lise,

    I was shocked to read Dawn McKinnon’s email this morning which announced the very sad and tragic death of Joe, who I remember chatting with at various Library events. I am sure you are devastated and the cause
    of his death is even more tragic. I hope that we can connect somehow. I will always remember you as
    one of my dearest McGill Library colleagues. My thoughts are with you and your family. Sincerely, David McKnight,
    Philadelphia, PA.

    He loved and cared about every student. There are some that teach for a paycheck and there are some that are born to teach. Mr Hackett was born to teach and do it in a way that always kept us engaged. With a corny/sarcastic joke. Sometimes we laughed at him and Sometimes we laughed with him.
    « I won’t pass it if I don’t see him Sir »!
    One lov Mr Hackett, till we meet again, you have a bigger stage to tell your jokes on now.

    LHA for Life
