It is with great sadness and shock that we announce the death of Jeff Workman – Resource Gift Solutions Ltd.
Jeff had not been ill and was very much in the prime of his life. Many of you will have known Jeff as he had been in the industry for over 20 years – starting as Trade Sales Manager with Brunel Promotions in Bristol.
After a year out for a sabbatical where he travelled throughout Asia and Australasia he founded Resource Gift Solutions in his home town of Bath in 2007.
Sara Fleming was his business partner and work colleague for the 20 years he had been in the industry, and she said; “He will leave a huge gap in our lives. The overriding character of Jeff was that he was a man of absolute honesty and integrity. Very humble and caring of his friends and family but also a much wider care and concern for humanity at large and the world in which we live. He gave to many charities and was also involved with Lend with Care which is a finance initiative to help companies in developing countries to work their way out of poverty. He was also very active with Amnesty International and a committed member of the Green Party. He was a great humanitarian, always striving for fairness and equality for all.”
Sara continued; “Our aim with work was very much to add enjoyment to our lives and those of our colleagues. Jeff studied History through the Open University and went on this year to do a masters – he absolutely loved it and it gave him a wide and varied outlook on life which led to many debates in the office. To say he will be missed is a huge understatement… It has been very comforting to us and his family to receive the many thoughts and condolences. We have lost a great friend.”
