Jamaicans were shocked by the news of the death of veteran broadcaster Francois St Juste this morning.
St Just, a regular morning guest on the radio for decades, died this morning (29 August) at the University of the West Indies Hospital.
According to RJRGLEANER Communications Group, which has worked with St Juste for more than four decades, the radio show’s presenter has been battling illness of late.
“RIP Francois. I didn’t expect this to happen today,” RJR colleague Dionne Jackson Miller said on Twitter.
“My deepest sympathies go out to the François family and the RJR family. This is a sad day,” said politician and Olympian Juliette Cuthbert Flynn.
Damion Mitchell, former integration editor at The Gleaner, added: “Very saddened to hear the horrific news of the passing of broadcaster Francois St Juste. His voice made a difference. Truly the voice of FAME. Heartfelt condolences.”
St. Juste has aired most of his time with RJR on FAME and Radio Jamaica 94FM, and has been the manager of the group’s radio brands for a time.
