A ‘FIT and healthy’ young man died suddenly without warning after taking a nap.

Jono Stead, 27, from Driffield, East Riding of Yorkshire, lost his life on December 14, 2022, because of an undiagnosed heart condition.

The sport-loving accountant had recently started his own business and was due to get married before the sudden tragedy.

His parents Dave and Karen and sister Becky are now telling his story to raise awareness of hidden heart conditions.

Dave said: “Jono had always seemed so fit and healthy and was no different on that day. 

“He had spoken to his mum in the afternoon and finished by saying he was going to catch up on a couple of hours sleep. 

“Tragically only 45 minutes later his heart, suddenly and with no warning, stopped beating.

“We are so blessed to have had such a wonderful son and brother for Bex and proud of everything he achieved in only 27 years. 

“So, as a family we have pledged to continue his drive and enthusiasm for life by raising money to hold screening events for 14- to 35-year-olds in the local Driffield area.”
