(Last Updated On: November 6, 2021)

The family of a man who died following a collision on the A38 in Plymouth last month have paid tribute to him.

Jacob Burnitt, 22, died following the collision in Plymouth on 26 October.

Jacob’s family said “Jacob was a much loved son, brother, and friend who grew up in Plympton and lived in Saint Budeaux.

“Jacob was a wonderful person who brought so much joy to our lives. He was always kind, always generous and the life of every party. He always knew how to make you smile. He lit up every room he was in, full of laughter, wit and mischief.

“We could not be prouder of him. He will be forever in the hearts of those who knew him.

“As a family we ask for privacy and empathy as we process this devastating loss.

“For this reason we kindly ask the media to refrain from publishing photographs of Jacob.”
