Breaking news of QLD swimmer Lisa Curry has released a heartbreaking statement about the death of her daughter Jaimi, who lost her battle with an unspecified illness on Monday at the age of 33.
This is ‘unbearable’ pain in a gut-wrenching Instagram post on Tuesday Lisa expressed!
‘Our hearts are completely broken. Our beautiful daughter Jaimi has lost her battle with a long-term illness and passed away peacefully in hospital yesterday morning with her loving family by her side,’ Lisa began her post, which was interspersed with pink floral emojis – an ode to Jaimi’s ‘love of flowers’.
Lisa’s update comes just hours after her ex-husband, former Ironman Grant Kenny, announced that their ‘caring, bright and loving’ eldest child had died at Sunshine Coast University Hospital. The family hasn’t revealed the exact cause of death.
Lisa continued: ‘So loved. So beautiful. So kind to everyone… So painful. I can barely breathe.
‘Jaimi will forever be remembered as a caring, bright and loving soul who always put others before herself. Her love of flowers, cooking, art, decorating, photography, babies, the beach, and helping others will always be remembered.
‘Our hearts are broken and the pain is unbearable but we cherish every wonderful moment we got to share with our treasured and so loved first child.’
Lisa and Grant separated in 2009 after 23 years of marriage, before finalising their divorce in 2017.
In May 2018, the three-time Olympian married Elvis Presley impersonator Mark Tabone at their Sunshine Coast hinterland property.
In 2013, Grant, 57, welcomed a daughter named Trixie Belle with radio presenter Fifi Box, from whom he had split several months earlier.
Our hearts go out to both Lisa and Grant and extended family.
