A long-time resident of Barrie, Ontario, Jamie Massie began his love affair with hockey like many Canadian boys. He played organized hockey in his local system until he moved to Ridley. He played on the football and hockey teams and was also the stroke of our heavy four. He went on to captain the hockey team at Northwood University before returning after graduation to his hometown. His passion for hockey very much intact, he became Chairman and majority owner of the Jr. B Barrie Colts in 1991. Jamie then lead the expansion of the Ontario Hockey League to Barrie building the state-of-the-art, Barrie Molson Centre where the now OHL Colts became Ontario Champions and Memorial Cup finalists. Jamie has spent his career working to strengthen Barrie through business, philanthropy and sport, and the list of accolades bestowed on him for his commitment to his community is stunning.
