    ‘Being on the trip I’m on at the moment is a perfect reminder of how lucky I am. Why you have to have a crack everyday, do as much as you can, and live as much of a life as you can for the ones who lost theirs.’

    Mr Ryan shared the heartfelt post alongside a photo of the rubble of the bombings, which killed 202 people and injured a further 209.

    He worked in advertising at the Gold Coast Bulletin between 2014 and 2017, but more recently took up a job in Europe for Move.com.

    Tributes flowed for the avid footballer who coached the youth squad at Southport Sharks. 

    ‘Sad day today as we lost one of the best! RIP great man Jake Ryan, never met a bloke to live life harder or better than him,’ one friend wrote on social media. 

    ‘Can’t believe it. You were living each day to the full and with such a grateful heart. Rest In Peace,’ said another. 

    ‘Love ya legend. Unbelievable energy and fun. Devastated,’ a third wrote.

    Mr Ryan was just 21 when survived the Bali Bombings while on holiday on the Indonesian party island with his brother Mitch. 

    ‘I know what pain really is after that. I was ready to pass out but was so scared of never waking up again,’ he told the Border Mail. 

    ‘I saw some very ordinary things, people missing limbs trying to escape, being burnt to death etc. I think when I went back to the front of the club to look for my brother (Mitch), there was no road or pavement. I was literally standing on dead bodies. They were also burning hot as the fire was raging. That stays with me definitely.’

    ‘I remember before going in to the op theatre in Bali and thinking if this is it?,’ he said.

    ‘Thinking of my family, my gran, my dogs, my mates, I’d tried my hardest with my footy, I thought about my funeral, what songs they would play, who would carry me out, how many would be there.’  

    Doctors were forced to chop off his right heel as it was ‘just flapping’.
