A few words about Jamie 

Jamie was born on January 24th 1975, the eldest of 4 children. His first school was Great Houghton Prep School, where he spent a really happy 8 years making many long lasting friends. His younger siblings all followed him there, which helped to create a real bond between them. It was there that he discovered the joy of competing – on the tennis court, athletic track and on the rugby field.

At 13 he moved to Oakham School, again a very happy period, increasing his circle of friends and continuing with his love of sport. A very fast sprinter, he achieved success on the athletic track and as winger on the rugby field representing the school. At 16 he succeeded in gaining a place in the East Midlands rugby team. After leaving Oakham he went to Southampton University, where he did a degree course in business studies.

Once he left University, it was obvious to us all that he was a born entrepreneur, always full of amazing ideas and schemes. It was his enthusiasm to try new things and seek out new challenges that led to Jamie having such a varied working life, and in whatever he did, it was Jamie’s ease in the company of others and fantastic people skills which rose to the fore. 

Family was massively important to Jamie, and he lit up so many family occasions with his humour and charm. From skiing holidays and summer breaks to Christmases in Crondall and Devon, he led from the front, the eldest, embracing all his siblings as his own. Indeed hugs were a big factor of life with Jamie, and such a reflection of his warmth and affection.

On those family occasions, food was always a big deal – barbeques, roasts and Christmas dinners, and Jamie was a keen chef. He would always bring new ideas to the kitchen and it was no accident that many of the jobs he turned his hand to in a professional capacity were related to food – running a fine dining club in Northampton, working in the kitchens at the Royal Oak down in Bigbury, and marketing the Favourite Monkey bar snacks.

Jamie had this natural ability to make everyone he met feel special – he had time to chat to everyone he came across, therefore we will all remember him as the kindest, friendliest and most generous person ever – someone with a wicked sense of humour, who touched us all in different ways, enriched all our lives and we all feel so sad to have lost his ‘joie de vivre’. That’s why this foundation is so important, it represents all the values Jamie held so dear, and for those of us he’s left behind it will help to keep our many happy memories of Jamie alive.
