This memorial fund has been set up by the family to help CRY (Cardiac Risk in the Young) reduce the frequency of young sudden cardiac death through supporting CRY’s screening programme.
The aim is to fund the screening of young people within the local community.
Alexander Edward Jones was born 27 September 1988 on the Isle of Anglesey on the beautiful, rugged north west coast of Wales.
In his teen years his keen interest in motor racing saw him race in TKM karts, winning the prestigious British ‘O’ plate in 2006 before competing in British Formula Ford 2009-2011 and subsequently moving to the USA to test and race in Indy Lights.
On his return to the UK in 2012 he took up competitive cycling, racing on road, cycle cross and time trials. Throughout these years during any spare time, Alex had loved to go down to the beach and sit on the rocks sketching the local landscape which he would later paint.
On 30 March 2019 at the age of 30 Alex suffered a cardiac arrest and died whilst out cycling in the Welsh hills that he loved.
He was in the process of setting up his website on which to display and sell his paintings. On his behalf we are continuing this work and offering limited edition high quality prints of his paintings – proceeds to CRY screening programmes.
