The Companies Office of Jamaica (COJ) closed its offices in New Kingston this morning following the sudden death of one of its directors.

The COJ says normal operations will resume tomorrow.

Employees of the company appeared grief stricken earlier this morning, with tears rolling down the faces of many staff members after director Hugh Jones collapsed on the job.

Quick responses from emergency medical teams to save Jones' life were in vain as he appeared to have suffered a massive heart attack.

One employee of the company was overheard saying that Jones had just greeted her heartily before entering his office.

Another employee said Jones always had a pleasant disposition on the job.
