The family of a man who was fatally stabbed in Welwyn Garden City have paid tribute to the ‘sunshine of their lives’.

Jamil Sarki, 23, from London died on Thursday, January 18, after he was stabbed in Ludwick Way.

Jamil leaves behind his mother and her partner, his father and his younger sister.

In a statement they said: “Jamil was the sunshine of our lives.

“He brought us so much joy and we’re absolutely devastated that he has been taken from us.”

Jamil was a keen football fan and in his spare time he enjoyed going to the gym and playing on the PlayStation.

A graduate of De Montfort University in Leicester, Jamil achieved a 2:1 in Mechanical Engineering and his family could not have been prouder.

They said: “He was such a good, family-oriented boy and always helped his mum.

“He worked hard for his degree and we were all delighted with his achievement.”

They continued: “Jamil was quiet and quite shy – he would do anything for anyone.

“We cannot understand how a boy of such potential is dead. It is such a waste.”

“We aren’t sure how we will move on without him but we will keep his memory alive.

“We will miss him dearly and never stop loving him.”
