Mike Jaega


Words can not explain how devastated I am  to lose my wonderful son in law, I no I’m a richer person for having the privilege of knowing him if only for a short while, even though I with my amazing daughter Gemma, Mikes father in law David and Mikes two special goddaughters Chloe and Alex’s where with him when he passed I will always remember the lovely, caring, honest person that he was with a great sense of humour which I’m sure got him into trouble over the years ,I will forever hold you in my heart and don’t worry we’ll take care of your most precious thing and the person that made your life complete your beautiful wife Gemma. Always in our hearts, Rest in peace Mike xx - Sherley Sturgess

My brother Mike was a very special man, who - despite, or because of, his own chronic pain - was immensely compassionate towards others. He was determined to use his experience positively through his work with DEBRA, to bring deeper understanding of the condition at every level, not just physically.  Our family are utterly devastated, but so proud of all he achieved. Intelligent, thoughtful and of course, his dry sense of humour is legendarily, he was a teacher for us all. I will miss him greatly as a brother, but also as a close friend. He lives on in the hearts and minds of all whose lives he touched - Trish Jaega

You were my baby Mike. I carried you in my womb next to my heart and when you were born I knew you were there for a special reason and that reason was DEBRA!  We worked as a team and we took on the World. You carried on through all your pain with an amazing sense of humour, a determination, compassion and love, determined that your life would not have been in vain and it wasn't.  I am so privileged to have been chosen as your Mum and am so very proud of you. You have left a massive hole in my heart and I know that the next time I hold you close to me you will be at peace and free from EB.  I love you to the moon and back and to eternity Mike.

My Wife Maria and I wish to extend our condolences to Mike's  Family. Mike was a great man. Great men do great things, this was the measure of Mike. He was a great Man and a great Human Being. His passing is a big loss to the World wide EB community. May He Rest in Peace. ❤ - Val & Maria Fynes & Family. Founder Member of Debra Ireland and Member of the Board of Directors of Debra Ireland
