Jonathan Joyce – 1971 – 2013

17 June 2013

It is with great sadness that we write to advise that Jonathan Joyce, co-founder and Technical Director of Storm ID, died on Saturday, 15 June, after getting in to difficulties whilst swimming off the South Devon coast.

JJ, as he was known to us all, was a keen and able outdoor swimmer. Media reports suggest that after getting in to difficulties, he was brought ashore by a member of the public and then airlifted to hospital in a serious condition where he was later pronounced dead.


His passing has come as a huge shock to all of us at Storm ID and he will be sorely missed. We have lost not only a wonderful and passionate colleague but a dear friend whose life has been tragically cut short. The only comfort that we can take at this sad time is that our lives have been greatly enriched by having had the privilege of knowing him and for having done some incredible work with an extremely gifted and remarkable individual.

Jonathan’s family and friends are at the centre of our thoughts at this difficult time and we ask for your forbearance as we come to terms with this loss.

Thank you

Simon Wall, Paul McGinness and Craig Turpie
