CJAM Mourning the Loss of Todd Fraba

CJAM is mourning the loss of Todd Fraba, who passed away on May 27th, 2024.

At CJAM, Todd Fraba hosted The Topic is Jazz. Fraba was involved at the station from about 2009 until 2021. In addition to hosting a jazz program, Todd served as Treasurer on CJAM’s Board of Directors. He was one of the most dedicated volunteers at CJAM and we can’t thank him enough for all of his contributions to our organization. Todd loved music so much that his involvement beyond CJAM included introducing an act at the Detroit Jazz Festival bringing Mel Tormé to Windsor’s Cleary Auditorium to being on ‘Centre Stage’ on CBC Channel 9.

CJAM sends out love and condolences to all his family and friends. To honor Todd, please take flowers to someone you love. If you so desire, donations to a charity of your choice would be appreciated by the family. Celebration of Life on Wednesday, June 5, 2024, from 2:00 p.m.-7:00 p.m. at Signature Tribute Event Centre, 3310 Dougall Ave. (519-969-5841). Share photos, and memories or donate familiesfirst.ca
