    Story

    Our dearest son Eddie and a wonderful brother to Amelie, has been tragically killed in Moorea, French Polynesia on Sunday 9th of August 2020. He was struck in the water by a speedboat whilst snorkelling checking our anchor..

    Our sailing boat has been our "live aboard home" for the past 18 months, nine of which we have spent in French Polynesia, mainly due Covid travel restrictions. The sailing community has been amazing in supporting us throughout this incredibly traumatic time.

    Eddie had an amazing zest for life, a lovely boy and so bright with talent and kindness,  who loved adventure and the sea. We were blessed with his musical talent, he played expertly the piano, violin and a double bass, never happier than listening to his favourite jazz and Bossa Nova tracks. Mature well over his 14 years, he has made an indelible mark on everyone he has met. In memory of his life and his love for music we are setting up a trust fund which will fund music and school tuition for talented youngsters. Eddie's former headmaster has kindly agreed to be a trustee along Eddie's sister Amelie (also a musician).

    We are immensely grateful for any and all donations made to help us bring Eddie home for burial to his village where he grew up. We have raised more than we needed to cover the costs so all monies over and above what's strictly required to repatriate him home for burial will be donated to Eddie Jarman Young Musicians Trust Fund. The trust will also receive the accident monetary compensation that we may eventually receive.To aid the fund further we will organise various auctions including offering some of his possessions and instruments, as well as making a recording of his favourite piano and violin pieces, which he played.

    The music trust fund will support the specialist music tuition and instrument hire and/or purchase for young and musically talented and dedicated children of modest and disadvantaged means. The funding will support children living in the UK and French Polynesia to spread the love of music in Eddie's name.

      Eddie loved music more than anything, he often said that he could not imagine living without music, either playing it or listening to it. In his memory let other children enjoy music as much as he has in his short but wonderful life.

      We are so overwhelmed by the generosity, kindness and support of everyone, whether or not they knew Eddie. Within minutes of posting the request we already had donations flowing in, we could not imagine that a mere 4 hours later, our target was exceeded! Thank you, so much to all for your immense kindness. Eddie would have loved to see it all and he would be very touched by the goodness of the humanity, something he tried to see in everyone, however well people were trying to hide it!
