Senator Ruel Reid
Minister of Education, Youth and Information
As a leader, he inspired people to think about reaching for the greatest heights. He was the kind of leader who inspired one to greatness. I thank him and wish him every success in his future endeavours.

Julian Robinson
Member of Parliament
He served with dignity and grace. He inspired a generation of people across the world to achieve the best that they can and have hope for a better life. We will miss him, and we hope that the good relationships with the United States will continue.

Imani Duncan-Price
Co-executive director, Caribbean Policy Research Institute
I wish him well, and I say it's incumbent on him to keep the fight for democracy in the United States as politics does not only happen in government, but also at the grass roots.

Floyd Green
State minister, Education, Youth and Information
Thank you for inspiring us and for making us believe that anything we put our minds to, we can achieve it. We may not always agree with his policies, but at the end of the day, I see him as the most inspirational leader of the 20th century.

Delano Seiveright
Consultant, Ministry of Tourism
He was a game changer who made people very proud. It was exciting to see him bring back a sense of respect, grace, and honour to the White House, and we are proud of his achievements. He has shown Jamaicans that they can achieve whatever they can conceive.

Dr Dayton Campbell
Member of Parliament
He has proven to the world that there are no limits to what you can achieve. He has also set a good example of how male leaders are to operate by the example he displayed with his wife and children. He can leave the world stage happy that he has inspired a generation.

Matthew Samuda
Senator
Despite all the challenges he faced, he changed the world for the better. His advocacy for human rights cannot be ignored, and I would say good knock at the crease, Mr President.
