David Coulthard spoke movingly of his family's loss:
We are here to remember my sister, the Lynsay who would always find a way of making fun and a way of shocking. I’ll remember her of course as my wee sister, born on April Fools Day but was no fool and was far from it. Being Easter my father would call her ‘super chic’ and that’s what I called her as well because she was ‘super.’
“She was absolutely beautiful and in love with Will. My family want to pay tribute all the support we have had from people here and from all over"
Lynsay Jackson died suddenly at home at Templand, Crossmichael, near Castle Douglas where she lived with her husband and baby daughter. She was described by her family as a wife, a mother, and free-spirited fun-loving girl.
The sister of Formula One racing star David Coulthard has been found dead at her home in Crossmichael, South West Scotland.
Police and ambulance crews were called to the home of 35 year-old Lynsay Jackson this morning.
Mrs Jackson ran the David Coulthard Museum in Twynholm. She is survived by her husband, Will, and eight month old daughter Emilie.
“It’s a terrible shock for everyone. She was so well-known as are the family. It’s a really sad day for everyone.”
