Simon’s fiancé Jessie Ho has spoken out. She paid a heartbreaking tribute to her fiancé.
According to The Daily Mail Online, the British ex-pat said Simon was “one of a kind.”
She paid tribute and said: “Simon is the love of my life and I am the luckiest woman alive to have met him.
“He was generous and selfless. He loved me, his family and his friends so fiercely.
“He is my soulmate, and was a wonderful son, brother, uncle and friend.”
The pair had been keen scuba-divers, hikers and campers. Simon left behind family in Cornwall.
Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the couple’s marriage was postponed in 2020. According to The Daily Mail Australia, the pair would have been wed in only a few weeks.
