ST. GEORGE'S, GRENADA, FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 7, 2014 - GIS: Our hearts are heavy today, as the Government and People of Grenada, Carriacou and Petite Martinique mourn the passing of our beloved Senator Jester Emmons.
Senator Emmons passed away peacefully last night at the St. Augustine hospital on mainland Grenada. He was 45.
Prime Minister Dr. The Right Honourable Keith Mitchell has reached out to the family of brother Jester Emmons to convey his most profound condolences.
Deputy Prime Minister and the Minister responsible for Carriacou and Petite Martinique Affairs, Honourable Elvin Nimrod, has also been in contact with the family and friends of the late Senator Emmons.
Emmons, representing the constituency of Carriacou and Petite Martinique, was a bright young star in the Senate, having been appointed to serve in the then new Government by Prime Minister Dr. Keith Mitchell, upon assuming office in February 2013.
Our deepest sympathies are with his family and friends.
May the soul of our dearly departed brother, Jester Emmons, rest in peace.
