Jake is a tour guide for White Island Tours. He was on the island when it erupted, and has sustained burns to 80% of his body.
This normally passionate energetic young man, who has a love for anything ocean, was in his element when this tragedy occurred.
However he now has a long journey to recovery, and anything raised on this page will be used to help the family financially to ensure they can be by his side all the way. And provide anything Jake will need during his recovery.
Jake is currently staying in ICU in Middlemore Hospital and he is surrounded by his family. The family would like to thank you all for the messages, support and good wishes for Jake that they have already recieved.

It’s been 6 months. What a crazy time it has been for everyone 😅 the last few months seem to have flown by but at the same time it feels like it has been a lifetime since my 19th birthday. I have just got home last week from an 8 day stay in hospital following my most recent surgery which involved multiple contracture releases. The surgery went great and the wounds are all healing up nicely. I will be going back in a couple of weeks for a second round of surgery, so fingers crossed that all goes well too. Since being home I’ve been doing what I can with my physiotherapists, mainly lower body and cardio exercises while my hands are out of action. Again a massive thank you to all of you who have continued to send messages of support, you have all helped to give me the motivation I need to keep working hard towards my goals!
