Fundraising campaign started for widow of food delivery rider who died in accident along Gambas Ave

A charity platform, Ray of Hope, has started a fundraising campaign for the widow of the 24-year-old food delivery rider Jason Tan who was killed in an accident in Gambas Avenue, while out fulfilling orders on Sunday morning.

Food delivery rider who died in accident along Gambas Ave just got married 5 weeks ago, has a baby on the way

 

The fundraising campaign was started on 12 April, two days after his death, and reportedly had received about $7,000 from about 150 donors the first day it started.

According to the campaign’s page, it hopes to raise $200,000 to support Tan’s wife, who is three months pregnant.

Members of the charity platform had spoken to the deceased’s brother, Jeremy Tan, who said while there will be some insurance payout, however, the family is unsure of how much the amount will be.

The deceased and his wife, who is also 24 years old, had known each other since they were classmates in primary school and were together for about six years.

They had just gotten married earlier this year, on 5 March 2022.

The father-to-be was reportedly hoping to earn an incentive offered to riders and needed to fulfill just 13 more orders to obtain it.

On the day of the incident, despite being urged by his wife not to go to work that day since it was late when he woke up at 9am instead of at 7am, the victim insisted on going to work as he wanted to earn more money because he had a baby coming soon.

Meanwhile, another motorcyclist, a 20-year-old man, who was involved in the accident was taken to hospital. The van driver, a 36-year-old man, was arrested for careless driving causing death.
