“For two decades, Erin Jane has been a friendly and familiar personality on Australian television and for much of that time she has brightened our mornings with her buoyant personality and megawatt smile,” an emotional Sarah Harris said yesterday.

“Erin was just a great person inside and out, and if not for television, Erin Jane might have made a sports career.

“There is no doubt that Erin Jane was an excellent student and definitely a gold medal winner for her three daughters.

“We will miss your sunshine at Erin Jane’s studio and all of us here are sending lots of love and strength to her family.”

“Love you dear Ez always a fun party eating red frogs and drinking warm milk,” wrote another, while another added, “AJ was one of a kind. Caring, thoughtful, loved her family, and her girls were her world. As part of her advertising world…we will never be the same again. Red frogs, apolitical [sic] the right conversations, the funny stories we all shared (goes on tour, stays on tour). Love you EJ… see you in heaven. We will all get there one day. I’m just so sad that you had to leave so soon.”

“Please join me in lighting a candle for EJ today. Her light can never be replaced, but it will always be remembered. Sending all my love from Queensland,” wrote another.
