Jett previously shared a heartfelt tribute to his beloved sister Jaimi, who passed away at age 33, last month. 

‘You were there whenever I needed you, you taught me how to cook gourmet food like roast potatoes, chicken and salad, and tacos – the essentials in our household,’ he wrote in the caption of an Instagram post. 

‘You gave me a slight insight into fashion by dressing me in up in dresses and putting makeup on me when I was young. You’d sit behind me while I ate dinner and would pick at anything pimple looking on my back – even if it was just a mole.

‘You were my second mother, you were my biggest sister, you were my friend, and you were a fighter until the very end.’ 

Jett went on to say: ‘Jaimi, I will love you forever and you will always have a place in my heart. I will miss you dearly, but cherish the moments we had together greatly. I love you so much, and I will see you again at some point.’

He also thanked ‘everyone for their overwhelming love and support’. 

The Kenny-Curry family confirmed Jaimi’s death on September 14 in a statement.

‘It is with a very heavy heart that Lisa and I confirm our beautiful daughter Jaimi has lost her battle with a long-term illness and passed away peacefully in hospital this morning in the company of loving family,’ read the statement by Jaimi’s father, Grant.

‘Jaimi will forever be remembered as a caring, bright and loving soul who always put others before herself,’ the statement continued. 

‘Our hearts are broken and the pain is immense but we must move forward cherishing every wonderful moment we got to share with our treasured first child.

‘We thank the incredible team at the Sunshine Coast University Hospital for their tireless commitment to making her better and giving us the extra time we were able to spend with her.

‘It goes without saying that this is a very difficult time for family and friends and we trust we will all be allowed to grieve in privacy.’ 

While the family’s statement did not specify the exact nature of Jaimi’s illness, it’s understood she had long battled an eating disorder.
