The political, business and academic communities were well represented as hundreds packed the Portmore New Testament Church of God at Bayside, Portmore, St Catherine on Saturday for the thanksgiving service for the life of Leon Thomas Jr, the son of Portmore Mayor, Leon Thomas Snr.

Thomas Jr, who died on June 4 after a brief illness, was hailed as a "model citizen" by Opposition Leader and President of the People's National Party (PNP), Dr Peter Phillips, who paid tribute on behalf of the party.

The young Thomas was a member of the PNPYO, the party's main youth organisation. He was also a past student of Calabar High School, the Portmore Community College and Excelsior Community College, where he earned a bachelor's degree in marketing.
