It is with deep regret that the College has heard about the news of Lottie Fullerton’s death. Lottie had recently completed her pre-clinical degree in Medicine and was about to embark on her clinical degree with us. Lottie was killed in an accident on Thursday 10 August towards the end of her trip to Nepal.

Her tragic death has saddened everyone in Jesus College. She exemplified the very best of our student community. Lottie was caring and compassionate, energetic and enthusiastic. She excelled both academically and athletically, and we were looking forward to welcoming her back to College to begin her clinical training. The medical profession has been deprived of a great talent.  We offer our heartfelt condolences to her family and friends.

For those who would like to attend, her funeral will take place at St. Anne's Church, Kew Green (TW9 3AA) at 1.45pm on Monday, September 11th, followed by tea at the Nash Conservatory in Kew Gardens. Her family would welcome everyone that would like to be there to help celebrate Lottie's life.

Should anyone be thinking of buying flowers for the funeral, the family request instead that the money be donated to Medecins Sans Frontieres/ Doctors Without Borders (

On Thursday 28th September, 7pm, in Jesus College Chapel, there will be an open time for students to remember Lottie. If students want to participate, contributing a photo, or reading, or music, or anything like that, please contact Megan the Chaplain by email. There will be the chance to join together afterwards in the bar. If Lottie’s university friends, peers and colleagues simply want to come and listen and think, you are of course very welcome. If college members need accommodation, or some food together in Hall (cafeteria style), then again please contact Megan by email.

On Thursday 11th January, 2.30pm, in Jesus College Chapel, there will be a formal Memorial and Thanksgiving Service for Lottie, celebrating her life as a member of this College and University.

There is a condolence book available in Chapel. Lottie’s friends and acquaintances from across the University are warmly invited to write their reflections in it. Nightlights are also available should friends wish to light a candle while remembering her.
