After the news of the tragic passing of Stephen van Wessem, numerous friends and past colleagues have been offering their condolences and kind words. The MD of Jaycar Electronics, Gary Johnston, and all the staff have also passed on their sympathies.

“Stephen joined Jaycar as the CEO in July 2001 at a critical point in the growth of the Jaycar Group.”

“He brought with him a range of diverse management skills that enabled the business and its senior management team to double the turnover and implemented a solid foundation for Jaycar’s continued growth and success.”

“Personally, Stephen broadened the professional approach of individuals and teams within the organisation.”

“All of us who worked with Stephen during this period offer our deepest heartfelt sympathies to his family,” said Johnston.
