Stowmarket: Family pay tribute to tragic motorcycle crash victim Jack Cocksedge

THE family of Jack Cocksedge, the 18-year-old who died in a motorbike accident in Stowmarket last Wednesday, have paid tribute to the teenager.

The family said that Jack was a “dearly loved son of Jill and Chris and a very much loved brother of Megan. Jack will be sadly missed by all his family, extended family and many friends”.

An inquest was opened and adjourned yesterday at the Coroners Office, Bury St Edmunds.

The teenager was riding his KTM motorcycle in Gipping Way, Stowmarket, when he collided with ‘street furniture’. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

The funeral service will be held at the West Suffolk Crematorium, this Friday, at 2.15pm.

Tributes have been paid to Jack via Facebook.

Jack, who lived in Bridge Street, Stowmarket, finished his studies at Stowmarket High School in 2010.
