A Titan here in Perth, but more importantly an excellent human. You are sorely missed Jamie.

A nicer man you’ll never meet. Loved and respected by all, the hole Jamie leaves runs deep. The flu like symptoms turned quickly into double pneumonia. He was encouraged to go into a coma and told it would only take about 3 days…advice he readily believed. They never found the bacteria that caused his lungs to fill up, which is remarkable in this modern age. It happened so quickly, most didn’t even know he was in hospital, hence the shock. He is already sorely missed by his devoted staff, family and business network.
