The Trinidad and Tobago Coalition of Services Industries extends its deep and sincere condolences to the family of Sheldon John, former National Extempo Champion.
Mr John was a shining light in the creative industries whose wit and affable personality made him an automatic winner even before he set foot on stage. He performed at TTCSI events and was a tremendous hit.
Clearly a bright and thoughtful person, like a true extempo champion, he was able to take complex topics and synthesise them into interesting and understandable lines that often left his audiences in stitches. Unfortunately, Mr. John’s best was probably yet to come.
We therefore join with the national community in mourning Mr John’s death but take this opportunity to celebrate the contribution which he has made to the development of National Culture.
