I worked with Jo in Dublin and she was an incredibly bright, caring, honest and passionate person. I was truly shocked by the news of her death and my thoughts are with her family & friends at this harrowing time. We will miss you Jo.

I also knew Jo from teacher training and found her to be a very honest and caring person. Her commitment would have taken her to the top and her energy would have kept her there. My thoughts are with her family and friends. Chris xxx

Everyone's comments are true, she was one of the happiest and most energetic, determined and enthusiastic people I've ever met, but at the same time she managed to be kind and caring and soft and sweet. I don't know how she managed to fit it all into such a small parcel. She was so excited about her new job and career. This definitely wasn't supposed to happen to Little Jo. Everything about you will be hugely missed, Jojo, I'm so so sorry. Verity, Lucy, and all Jo's family and friends, I'm thinking of you from far away. Seb Xxx

You were due to be our daughter's form tutor in September. She was so excited to meet you and we were thrilled how "at home" you were on the induction evening. A tragic waste of a young life. Our hearts go out to your family and friends. Family Warren.
