Piha Surf Life Saving Club this morning announced the death of one of its young members, Jess Hosking
It is with great sadness we hear the news that Jess Hosking has passed away in her sleep, while overseas in Paris.She had only been away from home a few months, and in the short time she had spent in Europe, she ensured she fitted in as much as possible. In true Jess style, she was doing what she did best – living life to the fullest and enjoying every minute along the way.
Jess has been an active member of the Piha SLSC, a competitor in surf sports and a lifeguard on A patrol over the past few summers.
Jess was an extremely talented sportswoman and a real asset to our club and surf lifesaving as a whole. Her enthusiasm both on and off the beach was incredible and her ability to brighten up even the most dreary grey Piha day meant patrolling was never dull with Jess around. Surf lifesaving meant so much to her and Jess undoubtedly meant so much to Piha SLSC.
Jess was an integral part of the club’s competition squad, always achieving excellent results, to which the club was very proud. She has left a void amongst the squad that will be impossible to fill. Jess always trained hard and played hard and was an absolute delight at any surf sports carnival.
Details of the funeral are not finalised as yet; however once they are available an additional notice will be sent to the membership. The club would also like to hold a memorial service for Jess at the beach in the near future. Details of this will also follow.
The club wishes to pass on their sincerest condolences to her parents Mark and Sandra, her family and her friends.
May you now rest in peace Jess knowing you have been such a positive influence on everybody who knew you.
