In Remembrance of our Loving Teddy Tucker
The Jamaica Inn Family continues to celebrate the life and legacy of our dearly beloved Herbert Tucker affectionately known as ‘Teddy” who was taken away from us on the early morning of March 2, 2020. Teddy has been the rock and foundation at the Inn for the past 62 years. In honour of Teddy, Jamaica Inn in tandem with The Jamaica Inn Foundation will be starting the Teddy Tucker Scholarship Fund, a non-profit fund dedicated to helping Jamaican families provide the necessary skills, training and education for their children who wish to pursue a career in the Tourism and Hospitality Industry.
The goal for the scholarship is $10,000 USD per year and the board will be choosing four (4) students annually to receive $2500 USD each. For every guest donation the JI Foundation pledges to match the same to reach our goal. Guests are welcome to send donations to our GoFundMe account here: gf.me/u/w6mcds. The Jamaica Inn Family wishes to express heartfelt sympathies to the Tucker family and friends. Teddy was not just a colleague, he was a brother, friend, uncle and father figure to many. He was family, our family. We will always remember him through the lives he has touched all over the world so positively.
