Yesterday Brown was showered with gifts from several companies showing their appreciation for his bravery and selfless act to save Renaldo Reynolds who was being swept a way by the strong current.
Catherine Goodall, Manager-Beverage Marketing at LASCO Manufacturing Ltd said, when Brown recovers from his injuries, he will be eligible for a post in the promotions department.
Major Basil Jarrett, civil military cooperation and media affairs officer at the Jamaica Defence Force (JDF), said Brown’s courage was beyond question.
“As an organisation that values courage in its members, I was personally very impressed by Mr Brown’s disregard for his own life as he attempted to save that young man. It is the type of selfless heroism that impresses us here at the JDF,” said Jarrett, noting that there may be a place at the institution for him if his criminal background overseas checks out.
However, while Brown might have an interest in joining the JDF he is not sure if that would be his best option.
“It (JDF) would actually interest me but I would have to be super fit for that, and right now, me nuh fit,” he said.
Apart from being offered a job by LASCO, he was also given groceries and a Samsung Galaxy J2 cellular phone from FLOW.
While Manager at Lasco Goodall does not suspect her job offer will be permanent she believes it could be something in the interim as it will suit his “charismatic personality.”
“We need a lot more young men like that. That youngster (Reynolds) probably had no chance if he didn’t do that. That story really hit a spot. It showed that there are still heroes in the world among us,” said Jardim, Chief executive officer, Rainforest Seafoods.
Jardim also revealed that he has asked his human resource officer to look for an available position for Brown.
