Cremation of UKs Heaviest Man Not Possible Due to Wide Frame

The mother of the heaviest man in Britain has spoken out about her fears that her son may not be cremated due to his weight. He was 700 pounds.

Organ failure took the life of 33-year-old Jason Holton of Camberley, England, last Saturday, days before his 34th birthday.

His distressed mother, Leisa, is now trying to locate a crematorium that will accommodate her son’s remains because of his size. She said that a burial would be financially prohibitive due to the size of her son’s body, which would need two burial plots rather than one. She said that one funeral home was able to supply an oversized casket for him and believes they have a plan for his transportation.

After Carl Thompson passed away in 2015 at 910 pounds, Jason Holton assumed the title of heaviest man in the UK. Thompson’s favorite takeout joint had just fulfilled his order for ice cream and apple crumble when he was discovered dead at the age of 33.

Jason started bingeing when he was a teenager and blamed his weight increase on school bullying and mental health issues.  He said that the loss of his father at the young age of three had left a mark on him.

He told a talk show host that perhaps if his father were around, there would have been strict rules about what he ate.

Even after starting renal dialysis and an intravenous infusion, his organs persisted in failing, according to his mother.  He died on May 4th, after doctors had informed him he would die within a week, she said.

His death was caused by obesity and organ failure, according to the coroner’s findings.  His condition was a ticking time bomb, and he was hoping for a prescription for the slimming injections of Wegovy so he wouldn’t die. He was considered too overweight for a gastric band when he was at his heaviest, which led him to proclaim himself Britain’s fattest man.

In gastric band surgery, a thin, flexible band is surgically placed around the top part of the stomach to limit the quantity of food that may enter. When worn, the band forms a little pouch in the upper belly that, when filled, gives patients a feeling of fullness. As a result of gradually cutting down on food intake, obese patients can shed unwanted pounds.
