Jamie Dornan's father passed away at 73 after contracting COVID-19

Jamie Dornan's father, Dr Jim Dornan, has died at the age of 73 after contracting COVID-19. Jim, who was an obstetrician and gynecologist, passed away on March 15, Jamie's rep has confirmed. The Northern Ireland Pancreatic Center (NIPANC), for which Jim had served as president, shared a photo to Instagram of the father and son, adding a message of support. According to the message, Jim was in the United Arab Emirates at the time of his death. Jim's first wife, Lorna, who is Jamie's mom, died in 1998 after battling pancreatic cancer. In a previous post on March 13, NIPANC confirmed that Jim had contracted COVID-19 and offered wishes for "a speedy recovery and return to your loving family." That post referenced a social media message from Jamie's sister Jessica that announced their father's diagnosis but has apparently been deleted. Jamie told the BBC in a 2018 interview that nothing has had a "bigger impact in my life than the death of my mother."
