Megan Gale ‘moving on’ from beloved brother Jason Gale’s death

The Gale family is “moving on” after the tragic death of supermodel Megan’s estranged brother Jason.

Mr Gale, 49, was found dead in bushland south-east of Perth last month after a week long police search.

He was last seen on the morning of July 14 buying petrol and water in Pingelly, in WA’s Wheatbelt region, about 150 southeast of Perth.

Police say they are not treating his death as suspicious and will prepare a report for the Coroner.

Mr Gale is said to have been haunted by witnessing the death of his colleague Robert Cunico in 2018.

Mr Cunico was working as a supervisor for Civmec Construction and Engineering at the Water Corporation wastewater treatment plant at Woodman Point when the joint on an aerator pipe failed and struck him.

Mr Gale’s famous supermodel sister Megan now lives in Melbourne but other family members, including their brother are still based in Perth. The Gale siblings grew up in the Kwinana area.

Megan Gale’s partner Shaun Hampson said the tragedy had rocked the family.

“That happening at any time isn’t a great feeling but at a time like this, but you know the family has dealt with it in their own way and so now it’s about moving on,” he said.

Gale attended her brother’s funeral in Perth last week.

“Megan went on her own, we didn’t think it was wise to take the kids over at a time like this so she went over,” Hampson said.

“She had the full two weeks quarantine in the hotel in Perth, she did the whole shebang, which is hard when you’re grieving as well.”
