After retiring as a player, he was a Defensive Line and Strength Conditioning coach at Northern Michigan University for six years and has been a guest coach at the University of Saskatchewan in Saskatoon.
He was honoured by being inducted in the Northern Michigan University Hall of Fame in 1998 and the U.P. Sports Hall of Fame in 2005. Jurasin was inducted into the Canadian Football Hall of Fame in 2006.
In addition to his playing accomplishments, one of Jurasin's enduring legacies is the red and black Rising Sun bandana he always wore under his helmet. A green and white version of the bandana became a popular CFL merchandise item, sold to Roughriders fans long after Jurasin's departure from the team, and even to the present day.
