Jason LabrieJason Labrie


Jason Labrie, Clackamas Community College Class of 2006, was lost at sea on May 13, 2021. As a program partner and mentor to many Water and Environmental Technology (WET) students, Jason was a profound presence at CCC and throughout the county. The deep connections that he made with the WET program instilled a continuous support system to provide students with internships in a field he dearly loved.

In addition to earning an AAS degree in WET at CCC, Jason also earned a BS in Biology at Seattle Pacific University and was a non-degree graduate student at Oregon State University's College of Oceanic & Atmospheric Sciences. He is remembered in the community for his positivity and hard work at Clackamas River Water and the City of Wilsonville as well as his involvement with the American Water Works Association (AWWA) and the Oregon Chapter of the American Backflow Prevention Association (ABPA).

In recognition of his incredible service and his support of CCC students, Jason’s friends and loved ones have established the Jason Labrie Memorial Scholarship to provide support to students seeking an AAS in Water & Environmental Technology. Their goal is to create an endowed fund in order to continuously aid students over time. You can help reach this goal by making your contribution today.
