Mark Jeffrey played for UNB for four years and returned later to coach the team he played for. He was a friend to everyone he met. Tragically, Mark died, on vacation in Montreal, in the Summer of 1991.

To remember and honor Mark as a person, a player and coach and his contributions made to the University Community - UNB retired his #17 sweater the following season and established a memorial scholarship in his name to be awarded to a member of the UNB Varsity Reds' (formally UNB Red Devils) Ice Hockey team.
