Jamie’s family have issued a tribute following his death:

“Jamie was a very much loved son to Melvyn and Caryl, brother to Marty and a much loved grandson. Jamie lived local in the village for 23 years going to the local schools. He went to uni and got a first class honours degree in film studies and English. Jamie was working in the local Cineworld gaining experience as he wanted to work in media/film making.

“He was unique and individual and was writing a horror movie hoping to get it filmed later in life. He had a love for music, playing the sax and the keyboard. He was an active member of the Rising Phoenix Paranormal society. He was a very sensitive, loving son, thinking of his family all the time. He had many friends who are devastated at his passing.”
