Jack Alexander Kevin MacMillan (October 11, 2000 – January 29, 2013)
Twelve year old Jack is described by his family as “a beautiful, gentle, loving, caring young man. He was passionate about sports. He played soccer and cricket from a young age. He played tennis each week and was due to start drumming lessons the day after his passing. He was an avid reader, whether a book, his kindle, kids national geographic, or even the newspaper (sports section in particular.) He was a great mate, friendly and easily made friends. While he loved his PlayStation and Nerf gun wars, he was conscious of having a healthy balance of being outdoors. Jack was a wonderful big brother to his 3 sisters, a beautiful role model. They have lost their guide, entertainer, future protector and dearest friend.”
Jack tragically lost his life while he was practicing breath-holding in the shallow end of his family’s swimming pool. His mother was close by, as she never left he or his sisters unattended while swimming – yet another tragic example of how SWB claims it’s victims quickly and silently, with no warning to the victim or those around them.
