In memory of Jack Bradley

Remembering Jack

Jack Bradley dedicated over 15 years of his life to making a difference at the Kirby Institute. He sadly passed away on 8 January 2019 after a period of illness.

Jack loved his work on HIV prevention and research. He was well known in the gay community and the HIV sector, having worked as a qualitative and quantitative interviewer on the HIM (Health in Men) Study, PH (Positive Health) Study, TOM (Three or More) Study, PASH (Pleasure and Sexual Health) Study, and the Online Seroconversion Study. As a man living with HIV, Jack brought a meaningful and deeper understanding to his engagements with people living with HIV. He was a generous and compassionate man, who offered support, guidance and friendship to everyone he encountered.

Jack led a brilliant and full life. We will remember him as an intelligent, witty, passionate and caring man who was always there for a friendly chat. His loss is being felt throughout the Kirby Institute, and beyond.
