“HSN 50/50 $506,358 September Jackpot Won by Jay & Julie Jessop”


SUDBURY, ON – Health Sciences North (HSN) Foundation, NEO Kids Foundation, Northern Cancer Foundation, and the HSN Volunteer Association are excited to announce that September’s HSN 50/50 Cash Lottery for the North jackpot of $506,358 has been won by Jay Jessop of Sudbury (ticket #P – 7198215).


“The call came completely out of the blue – it was just a normal work day until a few hours ago,” said Jay, “When I saw the call coming from HSN, I assumed it was follow up from a proceedure I had done over the summer. Needless to say this is much more shocking and more positive news. We still can’t believe it.


When asked how they plan to spend their winnings, Jay and Julie had some ideas. Their daughter is doing her Master’s Degree and is an aspiring veteranarian, so paying for school is a definite, and Jay has been in the market for a new truck.


“It’s just so exciting. This feels so surreal,” said Julie, “Winning the jackpot is going to be life-changing for our family. I don’t think it will ever sink in.”


“Winning over $506,000 is bound to generate some excitement, but we always have a laugh when the response is ‘is this a prank?’ That was the case with Jay, too but it’s no joke,” said Anthony Keating, President and Chief Development Officer of Foundations and Volunteer Groups at HSN. “It’s too soon into October to be thinking ‘Trick or Treat’. But in fact, it’s a treat for the winner and a treat for HSN. The higher the jackpot gets, the bigger a difference we can make in healthcare in the northeast.”
