The family of a 26-year-old man who was stabbed to death say they are “shattered beyond belief”.

Six years ago he moved to Bondi, fell in love with surfing and worked hard as a crane driver.

“Jordan loved life, was a constant source of laughter, such a loveable character,” Mr Byrne’s family told 7 News in a statement on Monday.

“Jordan was taken from us by a vicious and evil perpetrator, which shattered our family beyond belief.”

The 26-year-old was allegedly stabbed multiple times in the face and stomach in his North Bondi unit.

He was rushed to Sydney’s inner-city St Vincent’s Hospital, but did not survive emergency surgery.

Milo Wild, 27, has been charged with murder. It is believed both men had dated the same woman.

Wild has been refused bail and will remain in custody until his next court date in October.
