‘True country kid’: Family remembers Jack

JACK Cameron's family is remembering the 10-year-old as a talented sportsman and true country kid who was adored by his family.

A spokesperson for the family has spoken out about the loss of Jack in a single-vehicle crash on Sunday.

"Jack was a talented sportsman loved to spend time with his parents, Nick and Sarah, and sisters Georgia, Jemma and Meg, on their beef and grain property, Ardno," the spokesperson said.

"He was a true country kid, very capable at everything he turned his hand to, especially around the farm.

"Jack will be particularly remembered by his mates at the Roma State College and his clubmates at the Carnarvon Cubs where he showed talent and determination beyond his years.

"Jack was adored by his family who are completely shattered by his passing."

A spokesperson from the club said, "Jack is being remembered for his ability to carve through any defence and his determined tackling skills."

"He had a bright future ahead of him.

"He was a much-loved member of our club and we are all pulling together at this tragic time to support each other.

"Jack's father, Nick, is our club president who has devoted so much of his time to helping establish our Club.

"Our hearts go out to Nick and Sarah and the girls."

The Cubs have vowed when they hit the paddock again they will #runhardforjack.

The Cameron family say they have been overwhelmed by the support from the local community, family and friends. 

They have set up a fundraising page called Jack's Last Gift where friends can donate to a cause close to their hearts, Epilepsy Queensland, in lieu of flowers and gifts. 

"Epilepsy is a condition that has severely impacted Jack's family in recent years and the Cameron's hope those who want to show their support will do so by visiting Jack's Last Gift and donating a little," the family spokesperson said.
