Deputy Director of the Barbados Technical and Vocational Training Institute, Dr. Basil Jemmott has passed away.
A major fund raising effort was underway to fund a medical procedure for Dr. Jemmott that was estimated to cost over five hundred thousand US dollars.
One such fund raising event was scheduled to be held on Saturday at Hotel Pomarine, the location of the Barbados Community College Hospitality Institute where Dr. Jemmott was a long time instructor. He held a doctorate in education.
Mr. Jemmott’s brother Alvin, a former President of the Barbados Hotel and Tourism Association, tells Starcom Network News that Dr. Jemmott passed away about 8pm last night from cardiac failure.
Dr. Basil Jemmott was 58 years old. He’s survived by a wife and two children.
