What started out as a normal “Early in the morning with Jerry George” Facebook Live turned out to be the one that will have the most profound meaning.
“So folks, like I said, I have been abandoned by my host, I don’t know where he went, he hasn’t returned but I have come to the end of my story and I have shared some of your thoughts on it…”
“You just never know, you just never know” said Bev St. Clair in response to a comment that someone fell down a flight of stairs and permanently injured themselves.
Those following the Facebook Live program were not aware that popular social commentator and public relations professional Mr Jerry George had given his final ‘hoorah’ putting on a brave face to get the show started this morning.
Persons in the comments section joked that Mr George had fallen asleep. In a Facebook post, his wife Mrs. Valerie Tucker-George broke the story that shocked the country:
“I am still in Shock, came home at about 7:20 am and met my Husband Jerry George on the floor DEAD”.
The timing coincides with the first sign that something was amiss when the guest wondered aloud:
“I don’t know where my host is. He has abandoned me and I need him to come back at this point so we can share some of your comments, hear what you had to say, and how you deal with people that you come across in your daily life…”
Early reports suggest that Mr George suffered from a heart attack and may have experienced some discomfort early in the broadcast.
Breadfruit News is deeply saddened and shocked by the news. We extend our deepest sympathies to the family at this time.
