Jake Ryan didn’t let anything stop him from living his life to the fullest.
Neither a terrorist incident that killed hundreds nor a global pandemic that killed thousands.
“His whole life has been about squeezing every drop out of a lemon,” his brother Mitch Ryan told 7NEWS.
“And there was nothing left in it.
“He squeezed everything.
“He did everything he wanted.”
Mitch was in the Kuta nightclub district with Jake when the 2002 Bali bombings killed 202 people, including some of their friends.
A few weeks ago Jake visited the Memorial in London ahead of the event’s 18th anniversary on October 12th.
“What a sobering day today when we see the names of so many people who are no longer allowed to be with us,” he said on September 25th on Facebook.
Jake traveled across Europe while working remotely, despite the COVID-19 pandemic.
“The world stopped because of the pandemic and no one could travel,” said Mitch Ryan.
“And Jake did it.
“Nothing would ever stop him from anything.”
Jake made it to Noto, Sicily, Italy before paying another tribute to the victims on October 12, the anniversary of the attack, whom he escaped with foot and splinter wounds.
“18 years ago – one life ago – seems like yesterday,” Jake said in the post.
“You think back and I just think how lucky we were to get home.
“Our love, prayers, thoughts and support with you and your families today.
“Being on the journey I’m on right now is a perfect reminder of how lucky I am.”
He was jogging in Noto on Tuesday morning when he was fatally hit by a train.
“He was out for a run,” said Mitch.
“He did what he loved, stayed fit, ran around and traveled the world.”
Italian media reports suggest that Jake had headphones with him during practice, which could have prevented him from hearing the train.
He was hit along a railway line between the towns of Avola and Noto.
The 39-year-old Ryan, who made headlines when he yelled at one of the Bali bombers in court, was honored.
He was a prominent figure in the Gold Coast Australian football community.
“We are deeply sad to hear that Jake Ryan has passed away,” wrote his former club Southport Sharks on Facebook.
“We’d like to express our condolences to Jake’s family and friends.”
The Surfers Paradise Demons have described him as a “great club man”.
Ryan coached the Academy at the Gold Coast Suns AFL Club between 2012 and 2016.
