‘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,’ Lisa began her post, which was interspersed with pink floral emojis – an ode to Jaimi’s ‘love of flowers’.

Lisa’s update comes 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.’

Lisa concluded: ‘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.’

Sad: '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 said

The Curry-Kenny family had confirmed Jaimi’s death on Monday afternoon, releasing a statement in which they expressed their heartbreak and also asked the public to allow them to ‘grieve in privacy’.

‘It is with a very heavy heart that Lisa and I confirm that 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, which was written by Jaimi’s father, Grant.

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