Kingston, 18 April 2021 - The Minister of Culture, Gender, Entertainment and Sport, the Honourable Olivia Grange, has said she is deeply saddened by the sudden death of former Reggae Boy, Tremaine Stewart.
Stewart, who represented Jamaica in 2012, died after collapsing while playing football this morning.
Minister Grange said:
”My spirit fell when I received the news about Tremaine this morning. We have lost yet another of our sportsmen whose contribution added much.
Tremaine did well from early, representing his school, Eltham High, in the Manning Cup competition, and later all of three clubs: August Town, Portmore United and Waterhouse. Death came following his recent signing with another club, Dunbeholden.
I am proud of the fact that Tremaine was a product of Gordon Pen, Spanish Town, which is in my constituency of Central St. Catherine.
The citizens were so proud of him and the young people saw him as an inspiration. I am so sorry that he won’t be around to see the completion of the Gordon Pen Sports and Entertainment Complex, now being built, and the critical role he would play in the transformation of the surrounding communities through this facility.
My heart goes out to his family, his friends and associates and to the entire football fraternity.
Rest in peace Tremaine.”
