Rest In Peace Cor­nelius

The Star (St. Lucia) - - LOCAL -

When SHE Caribbean pub­lisher Mae Wayne landed the job of pro­duc­ing Hot Cou­ture—an es­teemed and in­no­va­tive fash­ion show that set the bar for all sim­i­lar Caribbean events—scores of beau­ti­ful, hard­work­ing young men and women grabbed the op­por­tu­nity to be a part of it. The an­nual show was mar­keted with a male and fe­male “Face of Hot Cou­ture” and in 2015 it was a young male model named Cor­nelius George who landed the cov­eted hon­our.

Cor­nelius brought fun and en­ergy to the late night re­hearsals for three years and demon­strated the in­valu­able qual­i­ties of ded­i­ca­tion and con­sis­tency. And not only in mat­ters con­nected with his mod­el­ing ca­reer. Cor­nelius was an in­ven­tive en­tre­pre­neur and was as­sid­u­ous in de­vel­op­ing his skills as a pho­tog­ra­pher and in the cre­ation of on­line content.

At just 29, he had crossed the lives of many in­di­vid­u­als and was an in­spi­ra­tion to oth­ers, re­gard­less of age. He was es­pe­cially ad­mired for his honed mus­cu­la­ture and for the gen­er­ous help he gave oth­ers who wished to em­u­late the re­sults of his rig­or­ous work­outs.

We at STAR Pub­lish­ing would like to ex­tend con­do­lences to the many friends and fam­ily of this won­der­ful, ir­re­place­able young man who passed away this week. He will also be missed by his Hot Cou­ture friends as well as the Leg­ends Car­ni­val Band with which he was as­so­ci­ated.
