The Java St. Andrew Society (JSAS) was founded in 1919. The Society aims to celebrate Scotland and all things Scottish here in Jakarta. From smaller gatherings for a wee swallie to ceremonious extravaganzas such as the annual JSAS Charity Ball we bring opportunities for everyone to raise their glasses and toast Bonnie Scotland. With a skirl o' the pipes and a swish o' the kilt we urge you to dree oot the inch as ye hae done the span.
TRAGIC NEWS - THE LOSS OF A DEAR FRIEND
Dear Members of JSAS,
It is with a heavy heart and and with great sadness that we need to notify you of the most devastating of news. Our dear friend and current Chieftain of the society, Mark Bennet tragically died on Friday night. Mark's passing is a deep shock to us all and our immediate thoughts and prayers are with his wife Gill, daughter Millicent and wee boy William. They are a beautiful family who have touched the hearts of many during their time with us in Jakarta. Gill and the children are currently being supported by family in New South Wales, Australia and it is the intention for Mark to be returned to them as soon as possible. On behalf of JSAS and our whole community, we will of course ensure that we provide as much support to Gill and Mark's family and will provide details of funeral arrangements as things progress.
May Mark now Rest In Peace and all our love and prayers are with Gill, Millie, William and all the Bennet family,
The Java St Andrew Society
