In a gut-wrenching Instagram post on Tuesday morning, former competitive swimmer Lisa spoke of her ‘unbearable’ grief at losing her eldest child. 

‘Our hearts are completely broken. Our beautiful daughter Jaimi has lost her battle with a long-term illness and passed away peacefully in hospital yesterday morning with her loving family by her side,’ she began her post, which was interspersed with pink floral emojis – an ode to Jaimi’s ‘love of flowers’.

Lisa’s update came just hours after her ex-husband, former Ironman Grant Kenny, announced that their ‘caring, bright and loving’ eldest child had died at Sunshine Coast University Hospital.

The family hasn’t revealed the exact cause of death.

Lisa continued: ‘So loved. So beautiful. So kind to everyone… So painful. I can barely breathe.

‘Jaimi will forever be remembered as a caring, bright and loving soul who always put others before herself. Her love of flowers, cooking, art, decorating, photography, babies, the beach, and helping others will always be remembered.

‘Our hearts are broken and the pain is unbearable but we cherish every wonderful moment we got to share with our treasured and so loved first child.’

Lisa thanked ‘the paramedics, support staff and the incredible team’ at the Sunshine Coast University Hospital for the ‘extra time we were able to spend with Jaimi’.

She added: ‘It goes without saying that this is a very difficult time for our family and all who knew and loved Jaimi so very much.

‘Rest in peace, my beautiful baby. I will miss you every sunrise, I will miss you when the sun is shining and the birds are singing. I will miss you when the clouds are dark and stormy and when the rainbow appears. I will miss you when I close my eyes. I will miss you when I open my eyes. I will miss our long hugs and long chats. I will miss watching, feeling and knowing your love for your sister and brother, your little nephew, Cleo, your Ma and dad.

‘I just can’t believe you’re not here anymore. I sit and just shake my head. It doesn’t seem real or right. You will forever be with me in my heart, Jaimi. I love you so much.’

Lisa’s husband, Elvis Presley impersonator Mark Tabone, also addressed the tragedy in an Instagram post on Tuesday.

‘As the tears flow and the heart aches, I write this as a tribute to beautiful young lady, who’s life ended way too soon,’ he wrote.

‘As your mother and father weep your loss, I too feel lost and heavy hearted. Nobody should ever lose their child. 

‘You always put everybody else first. You were gifted with many talents, amazing cook, arts and crafts, writing, and your love and creativity with flowers.’

Lisa and Grant separated in 2009 after 23 years of marriage, before finalising their divorce in 2017.

In May 2018, the three-time Olympian married Elvis Presley impersonator Mark Tabone at their Sunshine Coast hinterland property.

In 2013, Grant, 57, welcomed a daughter named Trixie Belle with radio presenter Fifi Box, from whom he had split several months earlier. 

Fifi, who had a close friendship with Jaimi, did not acknowledge Grant was the father of her daughter until 2016.
