I taught Jack for a short period of time when he was in Year 11. He was a quiet and well mannered student and a pleasure to teach. My thoughts and condolences go out to his family and friends during this difficult time.

Jack was a nice lad. I didn't know him very well but we got along and I considered him a friend. He will be greatly missed and my thoughts are with his family and friends during this difficult time.

Even if you didn't know Jack, you know from hearing anyone who talks about him what a great friend he was: people have talked to us about how funny, kind, supportive, interested, thoughtful, generous he was and how incredibly hard it is to imagine not having him around. In his time with us in 6th form I saw a young man with a quirky and dry sense of humour and a smile that stuck with you afterwards, someone who you always saw with friends and very often - as the photos show - laughing. Whatever he said he seemed to have thought carefully about - he was unfailingly polite, whatever you spoke to him about, and always thoughtful in his responses. There are just no words to say how sorry we are for the pain of his loss to all who knew and who loved him.

When speaking about Jack I really wouldn't know where to start, there is just so much too say about him. I have been good friends with him for about 3 years and every day of those 3 years he was happy and smiling and having a laugh. All Jack did was spread positivity. You could be in the worst of moods before speaking to Jack and only minutes later he was happy and completely forget about your worries. He was such as kind, caring, happy person. It's horrible that he is gone so soon but every minute of his life was lived in happiness. I'm never going to forget what happened but I'm also going to always remember the good times we had, the memories made and what a all round amazing person he was. Jack was all the things that make a good person. Jack had such a big impact on so many lives and made so many people happy and positive. Jack may be physically gone but he will always live on in our hearts. My thoughts and condolences are with his family and friends.

Jack was the kindest most sweetest person you could ever meet. He never had anything negative to say about anything or anyone. He had the most beautiful soul and smile and always brought a smile to peoples faces. He made you laugh when you were feeling down. He will never be forgotten.

Seeing you grow up is one of the best parts of my job. I taught a shy, nervous Jack in year 7 at Mount Grace, and then had him in my classes again from year 9 to A level. I saw him come out of his shell, become more comfortable with himself and start to share his dry wit. He was stoic and good humoured in the face of all my nagging, and kind and supportive to his peers. I know he had a tight friendship group and I can’t imagine how you are hurting now. I hope that in time you can see how much you enriched Jack’s life, as well as him yours. It is an unspeakable sadness that Jack is gone. I will remember him fondly.

Jack was one of the most genuine, caring and uplifting people I have ever had the privilege of being around. He was always outgoing, and would strive to make others around him happy no matter what, meaning it was difficult to feel down whenever Jack was talking to you. He will live on forever in the hearts of everyone around him, and my thoughts go out to his family and friends.

I did not have the privilege of teaching Jack during his time at HAJC6 but he was clearly a much loved student and supportive friend . My thoughts go out to his family and friends at this difficult time.

We have lost a great student, good friend, an ever present smile and a caring soul. We will miss you and remember you as one of our very best.

Although I did not have the privilege of having Jack in my Geography class, I felt like I knew him well from how passionately his mum spoke about him and his achievements. He is so loved and I know that he will be greatly missed by everyone. My thoughts go to his friends and family at this time.

I wasn’t very close with jack but I sat with him in science and he always knew how to make me and others laugh and always kept a positive mindset everytime i spoke to him. He always was a helping hand when I struggled with my work. It is a huge shame such a bright lad has a gone but his memory will always live on. My thoughts are with his friends and family x

I did not have the pleasure of getting to know Jack on a personal level but I've witnessed so much love and affection shown by his friends, the families and staff and I can honestly say I'm lost for words. He clearly had a gift for making others feel unconditionally loved and accepted when in his presence.

Jack was truly an incredible human being. Every single day he brought many smiles to many people's faces. I've never been in the vicinity of Jack and had a bad time, he brought positivity wherever he went. He was the funniest guy I knew, I'll remember every inside joke we had. His humour was unmatched. Jack liked everyone and everyone liked Jack, simply because of what a genuinely great guy he was. He was so so so kind-hearted and well-meaning, I don't feel a bad thought about anyone had ever entered his head. I believe we should all be better people in Jacks's name and spread the positivity that he did throughout his life. Jack was an amazing person who will be missed by everyone who knew him. He'll be so sorely missed but we can't forget the happy memories and jokes with Jack that most of us had. My thoughts are with his family and all of his other friends. I know he is in a better place now, and although his life was taken so tragically early, he did what he wanted to every single day: he made people smile, laugh, and have a generally good time.

I have been Jacks tutor since September last year. Although I only knew him for a short amount of time, I felt close to Jack and have been extremely shaken and upset by his untimely passing. Jack and I had a conversation about him joining my course next year, I think he would have fitted in well and he would have been most welcome. I found Jack to be a very funny, polite, generous and a well-liked young man. Although I might have “tactically ignored” his at times dry and irreverent sense of humour, this was certainly something I shared with him and I could have imagined myself wanting to be his friend if we had been the same age. His humorous and unique take on the world was always appreciated within our small group. I feel terribly sad about this whole tragic incident both for Jack, his family and the group of close friends he leaves behind, many of which have shared some beautiful words and thoughts on this page. I believe this is testament to Jacks likeable and approachable personality. It was also poignant witnessing the amount of staff and students that arrived to say our last goodbyes during the recent funeral procession. Jack was a positive and fun force within our tutor group and he will be greatly missed. My thoughts and prays go out to his family and friends at this extremely difficult time and hope they are able to take some solace in the fact that in his short years, Jack made a significant impact on many people’s hearts.

I remember Jack's smile and kindness towards other students. A sad loss to his family, friends and the HAJC6 community. May Jack live on in the memories of all of his loved ones.
