Nathan Sykes Pens Touching Tribute After Loss of 7-Year-Old Cousin Jessica

Nathan Sykes is mourning the loss of his little cousin Jessica, who sadly passed away on Valentine’s Day.

The singer and member of boy band The Wanted took to Instagram on Friday (February 23) to share the sad news with fans.

“My little cousin Jessica chose Valentines Day as her day to say goodbye and now every year on February 14th when we honour love, we will think of all of the love that we were honoured to have been given by her,” he captioned a sweet slideshow of the duo.

“I can’t begin to explain how inspiring, how strong, how funny and how kind Jessica was, and I’m so grateful that she gave me the pleasure of being part of her incredible seven years,” he continued. “I’m so proud to be able to call her my cousin and see her as a little sister and I will thank her every day for every memory and for changing the way I look at the world.”

“After heart surgery when she was only 18 months old and going on to beat cancer twice, I have never known someone with so much dignity and never heard one complaint and I will never know a story so inspiring,” Nathan added. “She has touched the lives of so many people and will continue to do so through the help of her family.”

“I’d thank everyone for everything they have done for Jess but if I’m honest it should be us thanking her for everything that she has done for us,” he finished. “I have never known pain like losing you Jess, but it brings me comfort in knowing that you are not in pain anymore. I will love you always.”

We’re sending all of our love and good thoughts to Nathan and his family during this very difficult time.
