JY refers to Jen Young. Jen was a CrossFitter in Burlington, ON at CrossFit Altitude. A special person, who truly loved the CrossFit community with all her heart. She would geek out on analytic numbers, she loved cats, wrote WODPress for Sweat RX Magazine, after she was diagnosed with cervical cancer she created a foundation called Love the Snatch, which included a Masters Competition that carried on for years after her death.

On Sunday, May 17th, 2015 Jen lost her battle with cervical cancer at the age of 31. For some of us, we were lucky enough to know JY and to call her our friend. Her passing hit the Canada East CrossFit community hard. She was a bright light, she was a true weekend warrior CrossFitter, and competed in many local competitions. A hashtag was created after Jen’s passing #JenisCanadaEast, the first event at the 2015 East Regional was Randy, a snatch event, to honor JY all the Canadian women competing wore Love the Snatch shirts. Jen’s favorite number was Pi, the JY Pi WOD was created after her passing, and we have celebrated her with it every year since.
