Jimmy is entering his final year of Civil Engineering at the University of Toronto with a focus in business and project management. Chess has been a part of his life since fifth grade when he began playing competitively in scholastic tournaments. While his rating may not show it, he has had some success representing Saskatchewan at seven consecutive national championships. Jimmy had the privilege of playing for U of T Team B in the 2016 Pan-American Intercollegiate Chess Championship where he grew his passion for the Hart House Chess Club; a passion which kindled long before he began university when he discovered the club online.
Jimmy will be serving his third term on the Executive as the Treasurer of the club; a position he both enjoys and is very familiar with. He is delighted to have another opportunity to continue investing in the immediate and long-term advancement of the club and looks forward to meeting this year’s members and shaking off some rust over the board.
