Two Canadian victims mourned after Las Vegas attack

 

Jordan McIldoon, 23, left, of Maple Ridge, B.C., and Jessica Klymchuk, right, of Valleyview, Alta., were among the 58 people who died in the horrific attack that also left more than 500 others injured, including an unknown number of Canadians, in Las Vegas Sunday night.

Two Canadian families are grieving today.

In a Sunday night attack on the Route 91 Harvest music festival in Nevada, B.C. native Jordan McIldoon and Albertan Jessica Klymchuk lost their lives. Klymchuk’s death was confirmed by her home province’s premier Rachel Notley; McIldoon’s, by a relative.

Klymchuk was the mother of four children and was in Nevada with her fiancé when she was killed. Friend Candace Nicole described her as a “gorgeous human being,” and said Klymchuk’s kids were her entire life.

“She had the biggest heart and she always wore the sweetest smile. Her kids were her entire life and her family and friends meant the world,” Nicole said.

McIldoon would have turned 24 on Friday, and was only a month shy of finishing his training as a heavy-duty mechanic. In a Facebook posting, Heather Gooze of Las Vegas said she was outside the festival grounds on Sunday.

“I am with a young man who died in my arms! RIP Jordan McIldoon from British Columbia,” Gooze wrote. May their souls rest in perfect peace
