Story

Since I have set up this page in memory of my beautiful partner Jess I have been updated on part of the reason for her passing away so quickly. She was suffering from Sepsis. This is now becoming more of a killer in this country than breast cancer. 44,000 people died from Sepsis last year and yet people seem so unaware how serious this condition is.

I now plan to continue to raise money for the Great Western Air Ambulance and Sepsis UK. I also plan to set up a website in Jess's memory with information about both charities. I will be campaigning to raise the awareness of Sepsis it is something that everyone needs to be aware of.

There is no easy way to put this so am just going to make the following comment. I was very very lucky to have had the opportunity to meet and have a relationship with the beautiful Jess Wootten, pictured on the right. She was a truly amazing young woman, 29 years old, with a heart of gold and I loved her deeply. Sadly she was taken from us on 23rd August 2017 and by way of a tribute to her I am organising a collection for funds to go to South West Ambulance Service and the Great Western Air Ambulance who worked so hard for 50 minutes to try and save her life. They were very supportive to myself after breaking the tragic news to myself.

Investigations are continuing into the cause of her passing and hopefully in time we will get the answers we are so desperate for but this is not going to happen overnight. I feel like my heart has been ripped out but I am glad that I was able to make her happy for the short time we did have together. Jess will always be my partner as I could never love anyone else she was too special to me.

I hope you can help with these fantastic causes I know its what she would have wanted and I thank you for your time and attention in reading this. Most importantly love each other with your hearts and souls because you never know what is around the corner

    Since my last update I have found out that Jess was suffering from Sepsis when she passed away. This is now becoming the highest killer of people in the UK with 44,000 dying in the past year. The awareness has to be raised of this awful illness known as the silent killer. I plan on setting up a website in Jess's memory with as much information about Sepsis as I can and also the Great Western Air Ambulance. People will also be able to access the Just Giving page to make donations. Thank you for your time and please help by donating.

    Please pass the link onto any family or friends as I would really like to get to the target in memory of my beautiful Jess who was so tragically taken from this world in August. We would be so lost without our wonderful emergency services and you never know when you may need their help.

    I didn't know Jess in life and I'm sad that I have only come to know her because of her being taken too early. She was clearly a lovely person and she and you had so much love and life ahead of you

I am Jess's partner and to say the least am devastated at the loss of her at such a young age. The Ambulance Service were absolutely brilliant and did everything they could for 50 minutes to try and save her and I cannot thank them enough. So this donation is in her memory
