Considering all we have discovered about Jim Perrin’s past relationships, it is interesting to note, after our sister died of cancer within nine months of her diagnosis, how quickly he was able to gain the support and loving sympathy of at least six other partners — up to the present — two within the year of Jac’s death. He claimed that he was himself now dying of the disease: they could hardly have missed this tragic coincidence… His account of the illness, ref. Jim Perrin diagnosed with Terminal Lung Cancer? and his patient suffering and acceptance as he dealt so bravely with his failing health! — together with his ‘history’ of past distress, the ‘lack of any real love or understanding’ — was to make him the irresistible subject for the ministrations of the sensitive women he seems to have opportunistically targeted (they were never without property or means) and with whom, in succession, he began A New Life.

We have written of our sister’s meeting with Jim Perrin in late 2002 and of how he went to live with her — ‘a safe house’ — in 2003. She had no idea of his pressing necessity to leave Llanrhaeadr ym Mochnant or that his main intention was to outmanoeuvre the Child Support Agency. Jac was completely unaware of that aspect of his life and he made sure that it was so: it would be many months before she learned the truth; and even then, only partially.
In several posts we have mentioned Jim Perrin’s slippery evasion of this agency and we fear that inadvertently the impression might have been given that our sister was party to his actions. So the questions might be: Knowing that he had a small baby, why did she appear so accepting of his parental neglect? Why had she involved herself with one apparently so heartless, and disrespectful of another woman — the mother of that child? The answer is that Jac had not been told and she had no idea at all. She was not aware of the truth. Continue reading
It has been said (by someone who knows Jim Perrin well) that we are, with our posts, ‘getting under his skin’ — and, that ‘he is a disconcerted man’.
Asked whether we should not be concerned that by writing them we might be drawing more attention to his earlier book West, we have thought of it and given it careful consideration: however, we realise that anyone who reads the book we so deplore, and the chapter in The Climbing Essays, (the first book in which he wrote his lies about ‘Jacquetta’), is likely to become aware of jacssisters.org. We have been told this by many who have actually found our site after reading his books…
Therefore more people will be able to read for themselves the story of our sister’s short relationship with Jim Perrin — the man she grew to fear — and of the extra issues that, with the help of others, have come to light and which we have raised since our first postings. Those who might research him, and who discover jacssisters — both now or in the future — will learn more about him than ever he would wish or could imagine. Continue reading
