SFU Email: csss-president-current@sfu.ca

Bio -

Justin is a (technically 5th year now) Computing Science and Linguistics Joint Major who is sweating a little bit too hard on his courses so he can hopefully get into Graduate School. You may see him often at CSSS and non-CSSS events due to the nature of him tending to stay long hours on campus every day. He identifies as an Arts & Social Sciences Student due to the Linguistics side of his major and his minor in Cognitive Science too. He also lives a mere 15 minute drive or bus ride away from the Burnaby campus. If you ever run into him on campus, you might catch him trying to commit another session of CSIL isolation to push his mental limits to get the copious amounts of work done that he is required to.

SFU Email: csss-vp-current@sfu.ca

Bio -

Jake is a 2nd year CS major who is still hesitant on whether he should pursue a Statistics minor or not. He can be seen helping his friends with assignments while struggling to do his own. When he isn't struggling with easy Leetcode questions or applying to co-op jobs, he enjoys creating hip-hop beats or spending time with his girlfriend. On most days, he stays in the common room until late at night, losing his mind over classes or event planning (like FAS Formal), so don't be surprised if you see him laughing hysterically. Despite this, Jake is surprisingly well-organized, extremely friendly and open to meeting new people, so feel free to say hi!

Check out his beats! (or not haha)
