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. JohnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s best was probably yet to come.
We therefore join with the national community in mourning Mr JohnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s death but take this opportunity to celebrate the contribution which he has made to the development of National Culture.
