In Loving Memory of Jen Baker

It is with an extremely heavy heart that we have to announce the passing of our wonderful Operations Manager, Jennifer Baker, who has tragically passed away last week. It is a massive understatement to say that everyone here at Woodward Markwell are absolutely devastated and completely heartbroken. 

Jen joined us straight from school, always a hard worker she rose through the ranks to become part of the management team and an integral part of our business. We are extremely fortunate and privileged to have worked with Jen over the last 15 years.

Managing Director, David McGowan said “The pain is so deep because she was such a lovely person, nothing was ever too much trouble. She was so committed and always worked hard for her team and the business. She would always go far out of her way to assist anyone who needed help or a friendly face. Her loss has not only deeply affected our staff and ex-staff but our clients and insurance partners are also heartbroken. We are not sure how we will cope with the loss of Jen, we don’t think we ever truly will. We will always remember her and will hold the wonderful memories we have close to our hearts forever”.

We send our love and condolences to Jen's family, her partner and his family, her friends and anyone who was blessed to have Jen in their lives. Jen's family understands that friends and colleagues may wish to send flowers but would prefer a donation be made to Great Ormond Street Hospital, who helped Jenny at the start of her life, or the Air Ambulance, who came to help on Friday. 

Two just giving pages have been created for each charity: 

Just Giving - East Anglian Air Ambulance

Just Giving - Great Ormond Street Hospital

We will never forget you Jen, you will be forever missed by us all.
