Jeff Yurek is For the People.

Member of Provincial Parliament for Elgin-Middlesex-London, Jeff Yurek, is a proud life-long resident of St. Thomas, Ontario. 

Having grown-up with the family business, Yurek Pharmacy Ltd., which was started by his father Ed in 1963, Jeff’s natural ability and desire to help others directed him to follow in his father’s footsteps. Having graduated from the Pharmacy Program at the University of Toronto in 1995, Jeff also held a position as a teaching associate with the University of Toronto’s Structured Practical Experience Program for the School of Pharmacy. Jeff and Peter purchased the family business and together have continued to build on the Yurek reputation and expanded the operations to include home healthcare, mobility, bulk pharma packaging, and distribution. 

Jeff has always recognized the value and importance of supporting one’s community. Despite the busy schedule that comes with growing a small business, Jeff has been actively involved with a number of local charitable and not-for-profit organizations such as: The Knights of Columbus; Rotary Club; Alzheimer’s Society, and the St. Thomas & District Chamber of Commerce.
