It is with deep sadness that I learned of the unexpected passing of James Moss-Solomon, businessman extraordinaire and a true son of Jamaica.

Jimmy’s contribution to the Jamaican business landscape spanned several decades, some of them the most unpredictable in Jamaica’s history. His continued success is testament to his exceptional business acumen and understanding of the local and global marketplace, as well as his passion for excellence. Jamaica has benefitted significantly from his leadership, innovativeness and visionary thinking.

A dedicated philanthropist, Jimmy served on boards of management across several disciplines, giving his time, knowledge and wide-ranging expertise to the administration of academia, industry and commercial activities.

Above all, Jimmy was a decent human being, well- known for his affability and warmth for those with whom he interacted in both his professional and personal pursuits.

I extend my sincere condolences to the family members, friends and associates who mourn him.

May his soul rest in peace.
