It is with great sadness that I have to inform you of the passing of Jaco. I unfortunately don't have his surname but he has joined us one some 4x4 outings. He and one of his passengers were killed instantly after colliding with the wreckage of two trucks that were in an accident moments earlier. This happened on 20th of August 2012.

Our sincere and heart felt condolences goes out to his family. You are in our thoughts and prayers.

Sad news! :( Our thoughts and prayers are with the family at this difficult time.

(This s almost exactly what happened to our son, almost exactly a year ago - a week's difference. Fortunately he survived the ordeal after 3 months in hospital.)

Also a well known Cruisa Club member, but mostly for his love of the Toyoyta brand and 4x4 activities.

Most sincere condolences.
Jaco use to work at East Rand Toyota until a couple of months ago. He was instrumental in the sponsorship we had last year at AAWDC of the branded golf shirts.
A very pleasant and sincere man.
Condolensces to his parents, his wife and young children.

This is probably the same chap whose funeral was held here in Klerksdorp last week. I believe he had relocated here, his family live here. I did not have the pleasure of meeting him.

Yes Eric you are right he was working on one of the mines. His family are taking it very badly and he was the only son. He will be sadly missed by us all.
