# I'm very sorry to be the bearer of such terrible news,
But I'm posting this on behalf of my dear friend Prof Kenny Martin. (aka Kerry)
Jessie (Nina), his lovely other half was killed in a car accident this morning. He has asked me to let you all know, and that he'll not be reachable by phone for the present as I'm sure you'll all understand.
By all means gaz me, and I will pass all messages on.
My heart goes out to him, as do my deepest sympathies to him, his and Nina's family.

Edit: Rest assured I will pass on everyone's condolences. Thanks guys.

but i think it'd be good if we all put out hands in our pockets and did a collection for Kerry...! maybe all pop a couple of ££ in an envelope and send it to Gruffy.

However nobody could be unmoved by the terrible sudden nature of the loss, or the great warmth and fondness contained in many of the posts here.

Would any of you feel that perhaps maintaining five minutes of internet silence on the site at the time that the poor girl is laid to rest would be an appropriate mark of respect?

I've had the Prof as a facebook friend for a while now, and I never realised that his much-loved Nina was the beautiful naked dancing Jessie.

When things like this happen (and sadly it's the second time in six months I've heard such devastating news) I feel so useless, as I'm sure we all do.

I wish I knew Nina. I didn't, but I know from Kerry's facebookposts and all the responses above she must have been very special.

Love to Kerry and family - including one probably very confused puppy.

# I can't say I knew her well
But please send my condolences on. Having been "widowed" by a fiancee`, I sympathize greatly. Madeleine L'Engle wrote that losing a loved one is an amputation. It's much worse than losing a parent or sibling -- perhaps only surpassed by losing a child.

Would that there was something magical, healing or even right to say to Prof. Martin and Jessie/Nina's survivors. But I can only commiserate with how unfair it all seems, especially because judging from her profile, she seemed a remarkable woman, free of malice and full of life. And the world will be lesser for not having her continued contributions to it.

And the raccoons will surely notice their loss of her goodwill.

what can I say. Well course no words can describe this and what Dear Prof is going thru. Still here's something from Rossetti

Remember me when I am gone away,
Gone far away into the silent land;
When you can no more hold me by the hand,
Nor I half turn to go yet turning stay...

I once stripped for my 1000th post cos of Jessie. Id be proud to do it again in her honour and remember her. it what she would want. honest

I can't pretend I knew Nina, but from all the messages that have been posted she was clearly a much loved person.

I always think B3TAns share a special sense of humour that can't be found anywhere else on the net or otherwise. It is very sad that one of us has met such a tragic end and heartwarming to see everyone pull together.

# So wrong.
Jessie rates very very highly in Blackmoon's list of lovely people. How this can happen to somebody so young, beautiful, cheerful, friendly and above all so bloody special is just so wrong. I went to Jessie's bash in Derby two or three years ago, (Maybe ten) and this was the only time I met her, but that one evening and next morning I spent with her was enough for me to know she was truly one of a kind. Not a bad word for anybody.

I hadn't eaten much on the day of the bash, and an empty stomach coupled with a few beers made me rather ill. Jessie looked after me, holding my hand- holding me up! Next morning she made me the most wonderful cup of coffee from fresh beans in that awfully noisy machine of hers. I'll always remember that coffee just like I'll always remember Nina. xxx

All the best to Kerry, friends, relatives....

I'm honored that I'm mentioned in there- always have been.

The reason for the multitude of posts is that Jessie was just a wonderful human being. Simple as. She took time to be friendly to everyone. When you had a disagreement on the board, she wouldn't just fly off the handle and throw you abuse, she'd discuss it in a sensible manner.

Also, her spelling, punctuation, capitalization and grammar was perfect. That's a big plus in my book.

# Miss you, Jessie.
I wish I wasn't emerging from semi-retirement under such circumstances, but Jessie will be greatly missed by this Doctor.

She was there when I attended my first ever Bash, which I guess must be about five or six years ago. As you all know, I'm a shy and retiring kinda guy. I wandered into the James Brindley, looking for a bunch of Internet Geeks. They were easy to spot and turned out to be some of the acest people ever. Jess was amongst the first to welcome me to the "real world" B3tards, and introduced me to many people who would become good friends.

The B3ta "digital media arts community" (that's how I describe it to my mum) have been a wonderful bunch, and I've made some firm friends (oo-er)... and I'm happy to remember Jess as one of the very first, representing all that's good about "the internet bringing people together". Sounds like cheesy Microsoft marketing blurb, but it's true.

I've made some great friends online, and Jess is an example of all that's lovely: She was warm, caring, friendly, had a great collection of sexy boots, and will always be remembered by all that knew her.

Miss you Jess, but I know we'll always raise a glass or two wherever your friends get together, and you'll never be forgotten.

# Well that just really sucks.
Sorry to hear this. My thoughts go out to her friends and family.

Although I never met her, I could tell she was always a kind, generous and thoughtful person. She was always kind to me here, welcoming me into this community.

She'll be sorely missed :(
