The Board of DYP are devastated to announce the passing at the weekend of our fellow Board member, Jake Miller.
We are sure the thoughts of all of the network are with Jake’s family, girlfriend and friends at this difficult time. A statement from his family reads:
“It is with deepest regret that we announce the death of our son, Jake Paul Miller, 24 years old, who was involved in a tragic road traffic collision on the A690 Durham City on Saturday.
“He was a much loved son, brother, boyfriend, grandson, nephew, cousin and friend to all and will be sadly missed.
“We would like to thank everyone for their support at this impossibly difficult time and ask to be left so that we can grieve in peace.”
In light of this tragic news, and as a mark of respect, the next DYP event due to be held on 3 October has been cancelled. We are still hoping to run our annual Christmas Quiz, in Jake’s memory, and details will be emailed out and published on our website in due course.
