After Retiring from the employ of NSWPF, Jason ran the successful family business of Seaside First Aid Training at Port Macquarie.

https://www.seasidefirstaidtraining.com.au/


 

Jason is survived by his wife Debbie Bryant; children Joshua Bryant, Danni Mackay & Taylor Bryant; and mother Margo Bryant.

Debbie Bryant is also the name of Ashley Bryant‘s wife.

Jason is the brother of retired member Ashley Bryant (deceased 16 Dec 2013).


 

Tribute: Port Macquarie’s Jason Bryant remembered

The 55-year-old passed away suddenly on January 9.

Mr Bryant was active within the Port Macquarie-Hastings community – including through his employment within the police force, and as a member of the Tacking Point Surf Life Saving Club.

Tacking Point SLSC president Mick Lang said Mr Bryant was an extreme waterman and arguably one of the best Inflatable Rescue Boat drivers on the Mid North Coast.

Mr Bryant put his rescue skills into action when he was involved in a mass rescue on the Hastings River in 1999.

Mr Bryant, who was a Senior Constable at the time, utilised an inshore rescue boat and with a colleague’s assistance, continually entered the most hazardous section of the bar.

They rescued members of the Port Macquarie Sea Rescue group, who had been thrown from their boat.

As a result of his efforts, he received the New South Wales Police Service‘s most coveted honour, the Peter Stuckey Mitchell Award in 2000.

Mr Bryant met his wife Deborah when he was 18-years-old and they were married for 33 years.

The couple had three childrenJoshua, Danielle, and Taylor.

The family enjoyed annual trips to the Gold Coast and spent time at the local beaches and rivers in the Port Macquarie-Hastings.

Mr Bryant served in the NSW Police force for 20 years and he was stationed at Armidale, Byron Bay and Port Macquarie.

After leaving the force, Mr Bryant worked in a number of different roles and also developed his own business Seaside First Aid Training.

Mrs Bryant said her husband loved the ocean but also enjoyed getting out into the bush.

He went camping and on multi day hikes with his family and friends.

Mr Bryant also enjoyed adventure motorbike rides, where he would often stop in the middle of nowhere to take in the scenery and the quiet environment.


 

Jason Bryant

The family invites all those who knew Jason to attend his Celebration of Life, to be held on Sunday 23rd January 2022 from 2 – 6pm at Tacking Point Surf Club, Port Macquarie, NSW.

BRAVERY MEDAL

Senior Constable Jason William BRYANT,
Port Macquarie Police Station, Hay Street, Port Macquarie NSW 2444.


On the afternoon of 24 May 1999, Senior Constable Bryant assisted in the rescue of six people who were stranded after their vessel had overturned in rough seas on the Port Macquarie bar.

Senior Constable Bryant, on hearing that a local rescue vessel had overturned on a sand bar, made the decision to launch another rescue vessel despite dangerous sea conditions.

Once the vessel was launched, Senior Constable Bryant, who was piloting the vessel and accompanied by another police officer, ( Senior Constable Anthony Francis LONG, NSWPF # 21197.  See page 22 in below link ) proceeded out of the river entrance to the bar.

The surf was at a height that prevented him seeing the stranded people. Through contact with Marine Radio Base, he was directed to the disabled vessel, some 300 metres to the north.

En-route, the other officer was injured as the surf and swell pounded him against the interior of the vessel.

Senior Constable Bryant saw the stricken vessel with two people aboard.

On reaching them, Constable Bryant was informed that there were four people in greater danger as they had been swept away in the water.

Senior Constable Bryant and the other officer located these four people and pulled them aboard, one at a time.

On returning to the stricken vessel, the boat had capsized again and the people were clinging to the sides of the overturned vessel.

Senior Constable Bryant could not take the men aboard as it was beyond the capacity of the vessel, but reassured them that he would return.

Returning to the river entrance, another vessel took aboard the four men and Senior Constable Bryant’s injured colleague.

Senior Constable Bryant immediately returned to the overturned vessel, but the men had been swept away.

Senior Constable Bryant spotted the men some 30 metres away.
On reaching the men, and as he attempted to rescue one of them, he had to turn the vessel quickly to avoid an oncoming wave. On the next attempt, he pulled the man to safety and then rescued the other man.

By his actions, Senior Constable Bryant displayed considerable bravery.

Rescue boat found 1400kms away

 

“THE Sea Rescue’s rubber duckie was washed up on North Beach but the fate of Rescue One, worth around $120,000, with all equipment, was still unknown late yesterday.”

That was how the Port Macquarie News reported the May 1999 sea drama that claimed Port Macquarie Sea Rescue’s boat, Rescue One.

On Monday though, 20 months after the boat sank and disappeared, the fate of the six-metre twin hulled Kevlar Cat was finally revealed: on a Queensland beach, some 1400 kms north of where it went down.

The lead-up to the boat’s sinking was one of the most dramatic events ever witnessed on the Hastings, and culminated in bravery awards for eight members of Port Macquarie Sea Rescue and two Port Macquarie policemen.

The drama began on the afternoon of May 24, 1999, when five Sea Rescue members headed across the Hastings River bar in Rescue One in an effort to ferry supplies to two stranded yachts.

Rescue One however lost power in the high seas and overturned, throwing the crew into the water.

Two other Sea Rescue members went to their aid in the group’s rubber duckie but this too was swamped, leaving it up to Senior Constables Tony Long and Jason Bryant who commandeered another rubber duckie and eventually rescued all the crew in a dramatic hour witnessed by hundreds along the shore.

Port Macquarie Sea Rescue’s rubber duckie was eventually washed up but Rescue One was last seen on May 26 1999, 18 miles off the coast south of Forster. Sea Rescue members presumed the boat had eventually been hit and sunk by a ship.

That is until Monday when Bryan Stewart of Oxley Insurance Brokers in Port Macquarie took a call from a Mackay resident who said the hull of a boat – identified as Rescue One by the writing still visible on the side – had been brought in to a Mackay beach by a Queensland survey boat.

The survey boat had been travelling north when the crew noticed the hull of a boat floating out to sea about 110 km south-east of Mackay.

They winched it aboard.

On arriving at their destination near Mackay, they obtained permission to dump it on a harbour wall where it was noticed by a pensioner, keen to salvage what was left.

He then contacted another Mackay resident, who on closer inspection noticed the partial names of “Oxley Insurance Brokers” and “Port Rescue”, the only writing still visible under layers of barnacles.

Using investigative skills that would make any detective proud, the resident rang Telstra to see if there was a listing for an Oxley Insurance Brokers in Port Macquarie and soon found himself talking to Mr Stewart.

“I was just nonplussed when he rang and thought ‘is he for real?’,” said Mr Stewart, who is still amazed the boat has turned up so far away from where it sank.

Mr Stewart is now waiting to hear from the insurance company, which is the boat’s legal owner after paying out on it more than 18 months ago, to see if the pensioner can salvage it.

There is nothing left of the boat above the hull but amazingly the engines are still attached, although the boat itself “smells pretty bad”.

For Port Macquarie Sea Rescue, the boat’s discovery is wonderful news.

“We’re so pleased about it because we had that boat for 13 years and were very attached to it,” said president Ron Isaacs.

“For the people of Port Macquarie it was a lifesaving vessel and to see it maybe rejuvenated makes us very happy.”

Police service top honour

The award, which is for acts of unselfish heroism, is presented to only one serving policeman a year. It was Sen. Const. Bryant’s role in last year’s dramatic Hastings River rescue that gained him the honour, the latest of many he has received.

In fading light and huge seas, Sen. Const Bryant, along with Sen. Const Tony Long, utilised an inshore rescue boat to continually enter the most hazardous section of the bar and rescue members of the Port Macquarie Sea Rescue group who had been thrown from their boat.

He received his citation during the Northern Region and Port Macquarie Local Area Command Medals and Awards Ceremony held at Port Macquarie Police Station.

The Peter Stuckey Mitchell Medal, one of the state’s most prestigious citations and given to only one serving member of the NSW Police Service each year was presented to Sen. Con Bryant by Northern Region Commander Assistant Commissioner Peter Walsh.

Sen. Const. Bryant said he was most honoured to receive the award.

https://www.portnews.com.au/story/982767/police-service-top-honour/


 

Efforts beyond the call of duty are recognised

But to work colleagues and the general community the awards signify just praise for deeds which go far beyond those of the normal course of a job.

More than 100 serving and former NSW Police officers, police administration staff, members of the community and family and friends were at the Port Macquarie Police Station for the awards.

It was the last official award ceremony for Port Macquarie Local Area Commander Superintendent Jim Cranna, who is retiring in January.

This morning at 9.15am EDST, Monday the 18 January 2021. The world became a sadder place and contains a great void in the hearts of many.
It is with the heaviest of hearts that I have to inform all of the passing of:-
Raymond C. ROBINSON
“Robbo”
19/08/1953 – 18/01/2021
Registered No: 16203
Sergeant Retired, New South Wales Police Force
Class No: 138 14/01/1974 – 25/02/1974 Attested Pro/Constable
25/02/1975 Confirmed to Constable
25/02/1979 Promoted to Constable 1st Class
25/02/1983 Promoted to Senior Constable
Promoted to Sergeant 1989
Section 66 Inspector
What can I say Robbo was a close friend to myself and many others and a brother of the Thin Blue Line. He will be sadly missed by one and all even those that did not have the honour of meeting him in person. He was a larger than life character and a mentor to many in Law Enforcement and the Motorcycling world.
Robbo has ridden on ahead to check the roads and rides for those of us that will eventually join him.
R.I.P Brother, Til Valhalla
Funeral arrangements will be posted once they come to hand. Please keep Fay, Ashley and Robbo’s extended family in your thoughts and prayers at this of saddest time.

4 days ago – Family, friends and members of Nambour’s Anytime Fitness are still in shock after the untimely death of gym owner Darrin Voss. Former employee and friend …

 

Condolences to, wife, Tania, and young children Chloe, Zahra and Ashton.


 

9 September 2020
We are deeply saddened by the recent loss of Darrin Voss who tragically lost his battle with cancer last week.
Many of you would know Darrin who was a very active member of our community but more importantly the gorgeous father of Chloe, Zahra and Ashton and husband to Tania.
Chloe Voss has umpired and played for Flinders and SCNA for many years. She has represented SCNA for the past four years at State Age and This year is our 15 Gold Captain.
It so difficult to find the right words but we hope Chloe and her family know that we are here for them in this difficult time.
This week in memory of Darrin we united across all clubs, at the courts, wearing his footy colours.
A memorial service will be held for Darrin at 10:00 this Thursday.
Due to COVID unfortunately numbers are reduced at the venue but for family and friends that would like to celebrate the memory of Darrin you can join via video.

Dear Giants Family,

It is with great sadness that today we mourn the loss of our friend and fellow clubman Darrin VOSS.

This morning he lost his battle with cancer and passed away peacefully at 2.30am.

He came from the CAMPSIE family of Cops which many of us came from.
He was a fighter with a giant heart, great Cop, footy player, friend and family man. He leaves behind a beautiful family and many friends.

He passed away from a rare form of liver cancer which sadly spread.
In this photo he is seen with good friend and clubman Nigel Webber.

We will always remember him and we will play with Vossy in our hearts.

May God bless him, his family and his friends.

Vale Darrin Voss.

Nambour parkrunners I have some sad news to share tonight.
Today our little community lost a rare treasure today.
Darrin Voss who many of you know through Anytime Fitness Nambour lost his short battle with illness and passed away this morning.
What many of you may not know is that without Darrin there would not be a Nambour parkrun.
Darrin had a vision to bring parkrun to Nambour as a healthy and fun way to connect the community.
He originally approached me in March 2015 and together we searched Nambour and surrounds for the perfect course. There was nothing that would really inspire people to come to Nambour to run 5km until 1 day driving back from checking a potential course at Bli Bli I looked up at the towers on Radar Hill Rd and said there is 1 more place I can show you but trust me, parkrun will never agree to letting us have a parkrun there because it’s 100% trails with hills, no toilets or water except in the creek.
I took him out to Parklands and around the Rocky Creek circuit and of course he was hooked. I said again there was no way this would be allowed but he was determined to ask the question.
The answer from parkrun was if you can raise the money Nambour can have a parkrun there.
Straight away Darrin kicked in a generous donation and organised another donation from another local business.
The Sunshine Coast Council contributed the balance and on 21 November 2015 Nambour parkrun was launched.
Thank you Darrin for your vision, your hard work, your enthusiasm, your generosity and all you contributed to our community.
Nambour has lost a very special person today and our thoughts are with your wife Tania and beautiful family.

Darrin was loved by us all and has had a positive influence on everyone he ever met. We lost one of the good guys today, however we’re all blessed for having known him.
RIP mate.

‘Multiple gym owner, law student, ex police officer…and all-round good guy.’
That was how I described Darrin Voss when we chatted on my show nearly four years ago.
Sadly, Darrin died today after a brave battle with cancer.
Devastating news like this stops you in your tracks.
I can only imagine what his family is going through right now.
You were always top shelf in my book Darrin Voss. RIP mate

Darrin, we all have you in our thoughts and our hearts.
Use all your great memories and connections with people to visualise your path forward.
I believe all the universal energy and positive thoughts from the enormous group of family, friends and people you have touched in your life can together be a great healing force that you can use to fight your way back to health.
Stay strong, we love you. Tony & Judy

I appreciate this will come as a complete shock to everyone but our dear friend Darrin Voss (Vossy) was diagnosed with a very rare form of cancer in late May this year and has been in the fight of his life over the past 2 months trying to overcome this terrible condition.

The primary cancer formed in what is known as his billary tree and a secondary tumor has formed on his liver.

The cancer is extremely rare and very aggressive and Darren was immediately put onto a strong course of Chemotherapy.

The tumors have caused significant complications with his digestive system and about 3 weeks ago Darrin underwent major surgery to clear blockages in his bile duct and portal vein in his liver.

While the operation was successful, it put him back a few weeks with his chemo and unfortunately the tumors have continued to grow in this time and his health and strength have continued to deteriorate.

Everyone that knows Darrin will understand he is not one to ask for help, however this is a fight he just can’t handle alone.

Tania, Zahra, Chloe and Ashton have been so resilient, getting on with life best they can and dealing with the daily challenges but now they need our help.

Any donation big or small will help Darrin and Tania and their beautiful family during this difficult time. We all need to rally together and help this family in there moment of need.

Darrin is just an outstanding individual who has succeeded in every endeavor he has turned his hand to. Although he’s been involved in the fitness industry for the past 12 years he spend the 10 prior serving the community in the NSW Police Force both in general duties and later as a detective. Many people would know he’s an avid Souths fan but most wouldn’t know he played over 50 lower grade games with the Rabbitohs in the early 90’s – he just isn’t the type of person to brag about things like that.

Please share with as many of Darrin’s friends as you can reach out to, whether it be people he knew growing up and playing football, when he was in the police force or working in the gym we want to reach as many people as possible so feel free to use Facebook, private messages, messenger, WhatsApp messages or any other platform.

We also understand many of you will want to reach out to Tania and the family, but please for now just give them some space to work through this – please leave your well wishes and messages of support here and the family will make sure Darrin see them.
