Jake’s Story

Jake d'Alquen

After a short battle with COVID-19, Jake d’Alquen passed away on 17th December 2021 at the age of 34.

Jake was a much loved and well known character from Pickering, North Yorkshire. He was an incredibly talented musician and performer.

Most importantly though, Jake was a dad to two girls, and his partner is also expecting another baby.

Shortly after Jake’s death his friends took the initiative to set up a fundraising page, with the initial goal of raising £2000 to help support Jake’s young family in the aftermath of this tragic event.

Amazingly, the fund has raised over £14,000 at the time of writing, and we are in the process of obtaining financial advice in order to make sure Jake’s family get the most benefit from this fund.

Jake was a central figure in a wide network of musicians and others that work in the live entertainment industries, so we are hoping to be able to run various events in order to continue to support Jake’s family into the future, and do what we can to soften the hardest of blows.

We have therefore set up this website in order to serve as an online home for Jake’s Fund, to keep people informed about upcoming events and fundraising.
