“In searching for a private swimming instructor, one name was recommended again and again: Jade Scognamillo. Knowledgeable, enthusiastic and professional is what describes Jade. Whether you are training for a triathlon, marathon or just want to improve your technique, Jade uniquely combines her athletic knowledge with technology to ensure your training is successful.”

Rob Simeon

Head coach of Vaughan Aquatic Club writes about Jade and her grant of citizenship.

“Jade is an athlete who is disciplined, motivated, focused and hardworking, which was demonstrated when she completed her amazing Lake Erie crossing last year. She gained the admiration, recognition and respect from all of her team members as well as members of other teams in the swimming community. Despite all of the time Jade devoted to her swimming, she still manages to maintain a well-balanced lifestyle both academically and socially. We are confident that Jade will be successful in her quest to swim across Lake Ontario in July and become the youngest female swimmer to achieve this goal.”

George Jacobson

Part of the Jade Swim4Life team and family friend writes about Jade’s grant of citizenship.

“As a Canadian, I am proud our country is allowing this special early award of citizenship to Jade. We should be thrilled that it is so important to Jade and her family that she do this fundraising swim to support the Sick Kids Hospital as a Canadian. She and her family are an asset to our country and I couldn’t be happier that they have chosen Canada to call home.”
