Even as the demise of 2008 Digicel Mounting Stars contestant Tiffany Thompson has shaken the creative group to the core, her mom, Carolyn Thompson, is striving to place on a courageous encounter. She remembers her only daughter as somebody who cared for folks extra than she did for herself.

She described Tiffany, who graduated from The College of the West Indies, Mona campus in November 2020, as a multitalented, entertaining-loving particular person whose favorite place was Blue Lagoon. “Tiffany could sing, she could sew, and she could even draw. She took my machine and carried it to Kingston and employed to make costumes and clothes for herself,” Mrs Thompson recalled.

But the really gifted Tiffany had also been diagnosed with hypertension at age fifteen. “She did not like to just take the treatment. I would persuade her to stroll, but she was not up to it some of the time. She had been back home with us considering that final 12 months March for the reason that of the COVID, ending up her diploma. Then she started out functioning at a call centre, but I realised about a thirty day period prior to her passing that Tiffany was vomiting in the mornings. And she would say it is phlegm on her upper body. She was sensation ill and under no circumstances stated a word to us and would still go to perform,” Thompson, who shared that her partner needs weekly dialysis, said.

She observed that he isn’t having his daughter’s demise “too good”, incorporating that pneumonia and kidney failure contributed to Tiffany’s demise. “When we took her to Annotto Bay healthcare facility, the medical professional stated she was important. They required to transfer her to KPH, but they did not have any house and the very same detail at St Ann’s Bay. So she ended up at Port Antonio healthcare facility. We ended up striving to get a catheter for her, and my son had found somewhere, but then Tiffany had a seizure, and that was it,” she stated quietly.

Adhering to her March 29 passing, the family members is organizing a cremation at a date to be finalised.

Tiffany was a member of the Peter Ashbourne-led Classical and Jazz Ensemble (CAJE) at UWI, and the team is mourning her passing. “It is with profound shock and regret that the CAJE family members notes the passing of Tiffany Thompson. Tiffany was a phenomenal singing talent, a uniquely warm-hearted songbird who inevitably turned an essential and irreplaceable aspect of every team that she graced with her presence,” a statement stated.

She was hailed for her effortless and unforgettable soprano voice and her “irresistible, infectious charm”.

Tiffany, according to CAJE, was a trouper: “She was the just one who would sew costumes make props program, immediate, and execute skits and even perform at front-of-residence. In quick, Tiffany could generally be relied on to help plug the holes in the generation and all of this cheerfully performed without the need of a one criticism – a actual trooper of a trouper.”
