What is your earliest memory of Kingston?

1/3



I remember coming to Kingston in 1989 as a grade-two student on a school trip from St Elizabeth to visit Jamaica House and King's House. I also visited Coney Park and Coconut Park at the time.
What's been your most memorable meal in Kingston?




I remember visiting Cuddy'z and eating an excellent spicy curried goat and rice and peas. It was darn good.
Where would you suggest as points of interest for a first-time visitor to Kingston?




I would recommend Emancipation Park, the Bob Marley Museum and the Blue Mountains as must-visit places. If the person is into sports, then I'd suggest the National Arena and Sabina Park, places where a number of our international sporting achievements in athletics, football cricket and netball were made.
What would you do if you were mayor of Kingston for a day?




I would definitely look into improving the city's drainage problems, garbage collection, and arrive at a reasonable compromise with merchants and vendors downtown as to suitable areas for them to ply their trade. I would also hand the keys of the city to one of our deserving sporting stars, perhaps Warren Weir, who won bronze at the Olympics last year and silver in the 200 metres at the World Championships this year.
What is your beverage of choice?




An ice-cold Guinness or Dragon.
Share the title of the last book you read.




Beyond a Boundary, a memoir on cricket written by C L R James. It gives the history as well as the socio-poltical impact of the game in the Caribbean, on and off the field.
What cologne are you splashing?




I'm currently wearing Spirit Millionaire. Since I'm not one yet, I may as well try to smell like one!
What was the last piece of music you listened to that most impressed you?




I'm currently listening to Drake's new album Nothing Was The Same. It's pretty impressive.
Share some places in your black book.




I recently visited Lyon, France for the World Paralympic Athletics Championship. The city is developed yet fairly laid-back, multiracial, and has beautiful attraction spots. The ladies there were gorgeous; I would definitely go back. London, England is always a good visit and Orlando, Florida also stands out, because of Universal Studios.
Who is your sportscaster idol?




Lindy Delapenha, Simon Crosskill, Patrick Anderson are among the ones I've admired locally. Internationally, I'm a huge fan of Bryant Gumbel of HBO Sports.
You have a personal history in sport that dates before your time as an anchor on TVJ? Catch us up to speed.




I did track and field in high school at Munro College and at college at the University of the West Indies. I won a bronze and gold medal at Champs in 1997 and 1998 in the class two sprints. I competed against Michael Frater in high school and Asafa Powell in college. Clearly they were ahead of me on the track; they went on to do very well. I was beset by hamstring injuries a lot, though, which really hampered my athletics progress.
Pelé or Beckham?




Pelé! He is a legend and someone I began to learn about from primary school. Although he retired in the early 1970s, he is still the standard by which footballers who came after, and up to today, are measured.
Who is your inspiration?




My parents were my inspiration. My mom passed in 2009 and my father in 2012. These days, my nephew, Omaine, who recently entered the Jamaica Defence Force after leaving the University of West Indies, and my three-year-old daughter Naje, who keeps me in check to get that cheque.
When last did you have a good laugh?




Watching an episode of My Wife and Kids on TVJ had me in stitches last week. I like to tell jokes too, so I guess I find something to crack me up most days.
And a good cry?




I cry for my parents every day. It's not something I imagined four years ago.
What's next for Jeremain?




Trying to make significant strides in sports journalism and getting that second degree in law or project management.
What is your philosophy?




Belief kills and belief cures. Always believe in yourself first, and never give up on your dreams.
