No flowers please but donations will be gratefully received by the Iain Rennie at Home Hospice, a charity that provides specialist and supportive care in the home to terminally ill patients and their carers.

Paul passed on Wednesday 13th February 2013 from cancer, and his wife would like to share what he wrote for his old company magazine on the importance of happy meals.

The IPA supported Paul’s work in developing the Media Smart educational programme which is run through the Ad Assoc.

Our thoughts are with his family and friends.


One year on from Paul Jackson's death, his widow Robin describes her thoughts and feelings:

It is difficult to imagine that it has been 1 year since Paul left us and on the anniversary, I reread all the kind and thoughtful emails and letters that we received after he sent his 'Happy Meals' letter and after his passing. I am inspired to share with you how much these responses meant to Paul and to me.
He was such an amazing man and made a lasting impact on so many of those with whom he came into contact. Ironically, he never really realised just how much he was liked and respected and the impact he made on others...until, that is, so many people contacted him to share their memories, thank him for his advice and kind support and encouragement or just to say how much he was appreciated and loved – and for that I thank you.
Paul had always wanted to be a professor and his great ambition was to teach and help people to develop and reach their potential – the many messages he and I received in those dark days a year ago showed clearly that he had more than realized this ambition – in his own unique way.
On a personal note, or as Paul would say..."there are 3 things to note here"…I would like to reiterate my heartfelt thanks to everybody for the outpouring of love and affection and beautiful flowers. I have read from your thoughtful messages and the most wonderful personal stories of how my ‘Sweetie’ changed the lives of those he touched…that fills me and moves me deeply. Also, I would like to thank you for the generous donations made to the Iain Rennie at Home Hospice charity. Your gifts have helped ensure that others benefit from their exceptional support, which allowed Paul to live his life, to the end, with great dignity. They were there for us during that most difficult time and continue to provide bereavement support for me.
Reading your messages of sympathy once again has been an emotional but uplifting experience and has brought me immense comfort. So many sentiments were echoed again and again in what you have written and I continue to be so proud of the man he was and the lasting legacy he has left behind.
Not a day passes without him being foremost in my mind – I have so many very happy memories of the time we spent together and I feel so fortunate to have shared a place in his life.
I know that I will not be alone in thinking about Paul and mourning my loss.
With love and gratitude and wishing you “long life’,
