She spoke about the experience on The Mighty Redcar and was even filmed telling Boris Johnson’s father, Stanley Johnson, ‘I have a tattoo of your son on my leg.’ 

She reportedly came to The Mighty Redcar team’s attention through an article she wrote for the Huffington Post: ‘Criminals Do Not Define My Home Town,’ referring to Redcar. 

Director of The Mighty Redcar, Dan Dewsbury paid tribute on Twitter: ‘RIP Jade Smith – you were passionate, brilliant and talented. It’s terribly sad that, at the end, you felt so alone.’

Following the show she went to live in Greece where she lived and worked for a few months as a nanny and English teacher, before returning to her native Redcar. 

A former pupil of Redcar’s Rye Hills School and Prior Pursglove College in Guisborough, Jade worked in adult social care and was a popular Rainbows and Brownies leader.

In an impassioned article on conservativehome.com she claimed Redcar had been left down my the Labour Party. 

‘I am proud to call Redcar my hometown. However, things in this town aren’t always easy; we are told from a young age that if we are to succeed we have to leave. But what sort of town are we leaving behind if all our youngest and our brightest flock the nest at 18, and only come back for Christmas? We need to fight for our town and against the harsh reality of decades of local Labour rule. 

‘The only barrier to success for young people in Redcar is the fact that Labour brings us all down to the lowest common denominator. We once had a grammar school – Labour closed it. We once had a sixth form – Labour closed it. As a result, we have no grammar schools, no sixth forms, and very few positive local role models who have made it through an academic route,’ she added.

‘In a world where politics is all-consuming, a reminder that there are some things that are much more important and that there is always help available. Jade Smith was a remarkable person and she will be very much missed,’ Simon Clarke, Exchequer Secretary to the Treasury and MP for Middlesbrough South and East Cleveland tweeted.  

Darren Grimes, a conservative commentator & Brexit activist from County Durham said on Twitter: ‘This is desperately sad. Jade was always eager to help out BeLeave and get involved in the referendum how she could as a powerful North East voice.’  

Steve and Andrea Turner referred to Jade as their ‘political daughter’, said: ‘Jade was a beautiful person with a big heart, but we all knew she was a troubled soul. 

‘In many ways, she could be wise beyond her years but in others, her immaturity and naivety came across too often, which meant she could struggle to build relationships with friends and family.

‘Even those she fell out with, though, will recognise that there was so much more to her and she will be missed.

‘But to those of us that ‘got her’ she’ll always be one of a kind,’ they added.  

‘When she got laughing, she had one of those laughs that was contagious. Words can’t describe how devastated I am to lose her,’ Jade’s best friend, Paige Beadle said.
