“Dear Skeem… It is with great sadness that we inform you of Jannes Eiselen’s passing. Jannes played Kerrin Edwards (Charity’s husband) for a couple of months on Skeem Saam. He was diagnosed with a brain tumour 6 years ago, but remained positive throughout; never giving up. He was always pleasant, polite and professional; always a pleasure to work with. Jannez passed away last week Friday after a long illness, two days after his 36th birthday. He will be missed by all of us here at Skeem Saam.”
