The SPEAKER (09:31): It's with much sadness that I inform the House of the sudden passing last Friday of Jason Godschalx, known to most as JJ. A highly regarded and long-serving member of the Department of Parliamentary Services, Jason commenced work at Old Parliament House as a 16-year-old apprentice painter in 1985. JJ dedicated his adult life to the maintenance of this building. He took great pride in his work and was very much looking forward to the opening of this 46th Parliament. A bright and affable member of the fabrics team—and I can personally attest to this—JJ was known and liked by so many people who work in this building. He'll be sadly missed. I extend our sincere condolences to his family, friends and colleagues. On indulgence, I call the member for Rankin, who knew him as well.
