Jack Francis Ure 28th April 1995-20th June 2013
A dear and wonderful son, brother, grandson, nephew, cousin and friend to all he came in contact with.
He was a very bright young man with a wicked sense of humour. He was at the centre of numerous escapades both in and out of college, but was always able to extricate himself with his quick wit and winning smile.
Jack was an active learner and fully involved himself in college work and life style. He was also a much loved member of the community, working in the local village shop for the last four years.
No one thought more highly of Jack than he did himself, but with his tongue firmly in his cheek. Never afraid to voice opinion, he loved a debate and would happily take the opposing view to everyone else, just to prove that he could win the argument.
Our favourite ‘Ureism’: ‘I’m kind of a big deal’ is now immortalised in a mural by his friends at the college.

A sport lover, he was a popular captain of the college football team and a talented player. He was however, knowledgeable about pretty much any sport and always willing to talk sport.
He was a popular member of the small Ely sixth form college. He finished his last A level exam on Thursday morning and left the college in high spirits, promising to see everyone at the Summer Ball, where he’d been nominated for a number of awards- none of them for his work!
We would like to take this opportunity to say how proud we are of his friends and acquaintances, thanking them for their support in this difficult time.
We love you Jack, mum, dad, Lucy and all the family.”
