Jess Wootten - A Truly Amazing Young Lady

Jessica (Jess) Louise Wootten was born on 6th June 1988 and can only be described as one of the kindest, generous, funny, loving young lady I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. She was cruelly taken from this world on 23rd August 2017. This site is a memorial to her.

FURTHER SEPSIS DEATH AT ROYAL UNITED HOSPITAL IN BATH

 

The Royal United Hospital in Bath is where Jess was treated so you can imagine when I saw the story of 2 year old Marcie Tadman it really hit on an already very raw nerve. Please go to the following links to read her tragic story. May she Rest In Peace and my heart goes out to her family.

13/02/19 Have spent the day raising Sepsis Awareness in Payden's Pharmacy in Westgate. Unfortunately the figure for deaths from Sepsis has risen to 52,000 a year. It is surprising how many people do not actually know about Sepsis and how serious it can be, so I really hope that I have made a difference. I would also like to thank those people who made donations and a total of £37.90 was raised.

My partner Jess was sadly taken from this world on 23rd August 2017, she was 29 years old. As you can imagine I feel like my world has been turned upside down. The days are getting better but there are still times when all I want to do is sit down and cry because I find it hard to accept that she is gone. I have a group of friends who have been so supportive to me through everything that I will never be able to thank them enough. I have created a memorial website purplelove-amemorialtojess.co.uk which tells our story, gives important information about Sepsis and heart conditions, Great Western Air Ambulance and a few other relevant pages. When Jess was being treated in hospital we were talking about different things and I mentioned that I used to ride horses. She said she would really like to see me back on a horse as it was obviously an important part of my life years before. So in her memory I have decided that I will take up that challenge. I haven't actually been on a horse for over 20 years but they are the most beautiful creatures and to be around them again will be good for me. I have found a riding stables near where I live. Nelson Park Riding Centre Ltd has a magnificent indoor arena and I plan to start going and have some half hour sessions just to get me used to being back in the saddle again. This will ultimately lead upto a lesson taking place which will be recorded and photographed. I think this will take approximately 6-9 months but I will be posting regular updates. I am asking for people to sponsor me and all monies raised will be equally split between Sepsis UK and the Great Western Air Ambulance.

23/08/18 This was the final photograph taken of my darling Jess on the morning of 23/08/17. We were in the hospital and she asked me to take this. I cannot believe a year has gone by without you here. You turned my world upside down and you stole my heart. I love you as much now as I did then, maybe even more. You are my soulmate. I will never get over losing you but will remember how happy we were together. I will continue to fight for you. I love you with all my heart as always xxxxxxxxxxxx

30/09/18 We’re supporting Jess this weekend, helping raise awareness of Sepsis - the hidden killer. ‬ ‪Look out for stickers on the boy’s rear wings - let’s go racing! ‬

29/09/18 Qualifying has taken place for the first race tomorrow. Dan Cammish will start 2nd and Matt Neal will start 3rd. As always Team Dynamics Motorsport are superb and the enclosed picture is one of the car's that will have Jess's tribute sticker on tomorrow. The races can be seen live on ITV4 at 11.35am, 14.25pm and 17.15pm

28/09/18 This weekend is the final round of the British Touring Car Championship at Brands Hatch. I have been in contact with Team Dynamics Motorsport tuners of Halfords Yuasa Racing Team and for the second year they will be placing a tribute sticker to my dearest Jess on the cars. The last 3 races take place on Sunday afternoon and I will definately be keeping my fingers crossed that they can bring home some silverware. I cannot thank them enough for kindly doing this and I feel this is a fitting tribute to her. Will post photos over the weekend.

I HAVE MADE A SLIGHT CHANGE TO THE NAME OF THE PAGE. I CANNOT COMMENT ANY FURTHER AT THE MOMENT DUE TO LEGAL REASONS. Every 3.5 seconds, someone in the world dies of sepsis. In the UK alone, 44,000 people lose their lives to sepsis every year. This is more than breast, bowel & prostate cancer combined. Sepsis is indiscriminate in who it attacks and can change peoples lives forever. PLEASE HELP WITH A DONATION NO MATTER HOW SMALL EVERY LITTLE HELPS.

JESS - A LIFE TAKEN TOO SOON

I have made this video as a tribute to my beautiful Jess. She stole my heart and I will always love her. The choice of music just seemed appropriate. Jess you have my heart forever xxxx

Hi, I am trying to raise funds in memory of my beautiful partner Jess who passed away on 23rd August 2017. If you would be able to make a donation no matter how small it would be very much appreciated https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/elayna-reeves. Thank you for your time

We are in the 21st Century, yet people still find it difficult to accept same sex relationships. We don't know who we are going to fall in love with and perhaps ultimately marry but we do expect to be treated with respect.

PLEASE MAKE A DONATION NO MATTER HOW SMALL TO HELP ME RAISE THE AWARENESS OF SEPSIS AND HELP WITH FUNDING FOR THE GREAT WESTERN AIR AMBULANCE WHO RELY ON PUBLIC FUNDING TO KEEP FLYING

Myself and Jess were so happy together

As you are aware this website is a memorial to my beautiful partner Jess who was so cruelly taken from this world on 23rd August 2017.

 

The inquest into Jess's death took place on 4th June 2018 and the Coroner felt it was natural causes.

 

I find this very hard to believe considering after the Post Mortem it was said that she died from Sepsis. Then in January a supplementary report was added saying she had Cardiac Arrythmia and Systemic Infection. Also mentioned by the hospital was Infective Myocarditis, meningitis, tonsilitis, possible epileptic event.

 

I have made a formal complaint with the hospital and am currently working with them to get some questions answered and also maybe get some changes to the way they do things with patients who arrive with many different symptoms. They have been very helpful and I have already had one meeting with them and hope to get together again in the near future.

 

I want to raise the awareness of all the illness's that have been mentioned but at the moment the most important one to deal with is Sepsis. This is taking 44,000 lives a year and this is far too many taken each year by this Silent Killer. Jess would have wanted me to do this in her memory as she would want to make a difference to people's lives.

 

I have set up a Just Giving Crowdfunding page 

https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/elayna-reeves

 

and would like to raise as much money as I can, which will be split equally between Sepsis UK and GWAAC. I may well add some other charities in the future.

 

I also have 2 other pages set up if you would prefer to donate directly to either of the above. The links are as follows:

 

https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/jess-purpledreams (FOR SEPSIS UK)

 

https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/purplelove-jess (FOR GREAT WESTERN AIR AMBULANCE)

 

If you are able to make a donation no matter how small I would be very grateful.

 

Thank you for taking the time to read this.
