Condolences are pouring in on social media for CEO and founder of John John Music Group Shelly-Ann Curran, who disclosed that her son had passed away.
The no-nonsense artiste manager and booking agent shared with her social media following on Friday (July 24) that her son died just one month shy of his 18th birthday.
Curran further shared that doctors had previously told her that due to her son’s medical condition he would not have made it past the age of 10 and that despite his passing she was glad that he had “beaten the odds”.
“18 years well fought my son! I need you to sleep now peacefully you fought the hardest fight and will never forget your determination to be with us for 18years !!!! I’m still numb and selfishly crying but I know you deserve to rest,” said Curran on Instagram, where she shared a photo of herself smiling next to her son.
The mother of four also tweeted about her son’s passing sharing with her followers that her heart was “shattered”.
“Justus… I was not ready but I only want you in the best comfortable peaceful place. My heart is shattered. Making you happy was my job,” added Curran in a tweet.
Several of Curran’s colleagues in the entertainment and media industry shared kind words of support including artiste Demarco, Ce’Cile and Tifa.
Others that reached out to the grieving mom, included the Head of Marketing at Bob Marley Group of Companies Sabrina Webster, the country’s leading lifestyle editor Novia McDonald-Whyte and attorney-at-law Yaneek Page .
