Obituary: Family Go Fund Me Setup

Durham Laporte’s sister, Justine, and Jayde have set up a fundraiser. On behalf of Jill Ferguson, Justine is organizing this fundraiser. 

The sisters have notified everyone about the cause stating, “we have updated the goal amount because we reached our first one. Thank you so much for your kind love and support as we try to navigate this world without Durham and figure out how we will honor him. The love and support from everyone have been holding us up as we go through this trauma. Thank you so much for being there for us. We are so grateful.”


According to them, they want the fund to spread kindness, help people and continue to make people feel seen and heard because that’s what Durham did. Laporte made everyone feel like the most important person in the room.

Durham Laporte: Wikipedia And Parents Ethnicity

Durham Laporte does not have a Wikipedia page, but different pages chose the comedian to write about him. Laporte was invested in comics since his teen years, and he always wanted to make people laugh in high school.

He said, “I was one of those guys who always liked talking in front of the whole school for events,” he says. “And I’ve always thought I was funny, and sometimes it feels like I am funny, although with stand up sometimes you’ll have a night where you feel like you’re not funny at all.”

Durham has two older sisters- Justine Laporte and Jayda Laporte. Durham died on January 2, 2022, just shy of his 26th birthday. He worked at many camps while growing up and always spread laughter.

Before passing away, Durham opened his own comedy space in Halifax. The sisters, on his behalf, have collected funds to assist one of those camps with a new stage, sound systems, and several other pieces of equipment. 

They further want to give some of the funds to the comedy space their brother opened so they can have an annual comedy show in his name. Along with Justine and Jayda, Durham has a great group of comedian friends who will continue to support his club.
