(CMR) Jill Stewart, wife of Adam Stewart, Sandals Hotel executive chairman, died Saturday, a little over a year after she was diagnosed with cancer.
“It is almost unimaginable that it has come to this. Still, with unbearable grief and a broken heart, I let you know that my wife Jill, the love of my life, my best friend of 28 years, and mother of our three wonderful children passed away peacefully and surrounded by love,” Adam Stewart posted on social media, announcing her death.
Stewart said his wife was brave and generous, and wanted to share her journey with the community. He added that his wife hoped her story would serve to impact and protect others in the pursuit of prevention.
“She remained deeply touched by your words of comfort and she hoped her story would serve to impact and protect others in the pursuit of prevention,” he said.
“She fought harder than anything I have ever seen and never ever gave up. Hers will forever be a story of courage, strength, and grace. We are shattered to begin this new journey without her but the love she left us will be our guide,” he added,
