Respect the family

Cheerful employee

He, unfortunately, suffered acute liver failure and a cardiac arrest the following day. He was pronounced dead on Sunday 31st December 2017 at approximately 7:15 pm with just a few hours to the New Year.”  Media Stream, the owners of 2FM disclosed.

They went on to describe Jeremy as an outstanding, caring, considerate and cheerful employee.
