Andy Jackson passed away suddenly on 14th October. Devoted husband to Jackie, inspirational dad to Ellie and Fred, loving brother to Sue, uncle, great uncle, and wonderful friend and colleague to so many people. He is gone far too soon. A talented underwater cameraman, Andy’s films captivated millions of people through much-loved shows like BBC Springwatch and Blue Planet II. His work has helped increase protection for threatened marine habitats and animals. Prior to his wildlife filmmaking career, Andy was a pioneer of North Sea shipwrecks, discovering and charting their locations, often returning with barnacle-encrusted artefacts. Throughout his life, Andy has always loved intrepid adventure, the natural world, and creating beautiful things – from treehouses to boats to homes to highly-specialised filming equipment. Always ready to lend a hand, his generous spirit has built great friendships from the Highlands to the South Coast to his native Yorkshire. We are devastated to lose Andy, our hero, such a bright light in our lives, and invite his family and friends to join us at a service to commemorate his magnificent achievements in life and the brilliance of his soul.
