Jenn Hill

by 112

It’s with tremendous sadness that we have to announce that our Deputy Editor, Jenn Hill died yesterday after her long battle with lung cancer, at St Gemma’s Hospice, Leeds. She was 37.

Although expected after her decision to step down as Deputy Editor just over a month ago the news is still shocking to all of us at Singletrack and Grit.cx. All our thoughts are now with her husband Tom and all her family and friends.

    As a 38 year old myself, it reminds me to make the most of every moment.

    It is a comfort that she has left us such an excellent body of work to re- read, and remind ourselves why we all love getting out on our bikes

  53. rip Jenn – and thank you for the words and inspiration. I hope your family and friends can take some small comfort from the impact you had on so many xx

  54. Said hi to Jenn and Steve Worland at the Bristol Handmade bike thingy a couple of years ago.
    I was so excited to just say hello!
    Both very friendly, it’s so sad that they are both now gone, way too soon.
    Condolences to family and friends.
    38, what sort of age is that?

  59. Awful news. It is devastating when it happens to anyone, but 38 is too damn young.
    I never met Jenn but it is starkly obvious from the posts from Singletrack and the responses in the comments and forum that she was very well loved. That’s something to be proud of.

  75. What a lovely but heart-rending photo to remember Jenn by. RIP, and best wishes to all who knew and loved her.

    That was Jenn through and through, endlessly positive, supportive and giving.

  77. Such sad, and terrible news. So young. May she rest in peace.

  78. Jenn was fab.
    I only met her a few times – always on bikes or in bike shops – and I haven’t seen her for a long time, but she was one of those people who leaves an impression.
    It’s hard to think of anyone who loves riding bikes more than Jenn did.

  79. Such sad news. My thoughts go out to all her family, her friends, and to all those at STW.

    A terrible loss, one who will never be forgotten…
