Mr O’Neile wrote that Mr Anderson was an enthusiastic skater, footballer and worker who enjoyed drinking Reschs beer in his downtime.

“Jake passed away due to a tragic workplace incident,” he wrote.

“This terrible news has left Jake’s friends and loved ones in utter grief and disbelief.”

‘Due to Jake’s tenacious work ethic, he was recently able to buy his first home for himself, his beautiful partner Jess and her daughter Evie whom he loved very much.

“We would love Jess and Evie to be able to stay in this home for as long as possible and provide financial stability as they navigate the uncertain times ahead.”

Mr O’Niele said the $30,000 he sought for the family would go towards rent, food and monthly bills, as well as providing general financial security.

Despite only launching on Wednesday, the fundraiser has already garnered hundreds of donations and raised more than $25,000.

Family friend Luke O'Niele said the funds raised would help Ms Brooke and her daughter Evie stay in the home
