Jett Kenny seeks the comfort of friends in Brisbane after the death of his sister Jaimi

Lisa Curry and Grant Kenny’s son, Jett Kenny, has sought the comfort of friends after the death of his sister Jaimi on Monday.

Posting to Instagram Stories on Wednesday, the 26-year-old model shared footage of himself drinking cocktails and eating pizza with pals at a trendy Brisbane restaurant.

One photo shows Jett smiling as he sits behind a table overlooking the water, while joined by his friend Jamo Porter.

The surf lifesaver’s outing comes after he admitted on Tuesday that he hadn’t always ‘been the best brother’ to Jaimi, who battled an eating disorder for years.

Also in attendance was Jamo’s partner, Karis Ramsay, who uploaded a photo of Jett and Jamo enjoying a lighthearted conversation. 

‘Happy anniversary,’ Karis wrote next to the image, suggesting that that the purpose of the outing was to celebrate her and Jamo’s relationship milestone. 

Sitting in front of Jett and his pal were plates of chips, a burger, several large pizzas and two cold beverages.

Paying tribute to Jaimi on Instagram on Tuesday, Jett shared a throwback photo of the pair posing for a selfie, alongside a heartbreaking caption. 

‘I may not have been the best brother to you all the time, I know you thought you weren’t being the big sister I needed all the time, but I do know we loved one another unconditionally all the time,’ he wrote.

‘I will love you forever. Rest In Peace my beautiful big sister, the world lost one of its treasures yesterday but heaven gained one. You will be dearly missed by all whose lives you touched.’

‘Jaimi will forever be remembered as a caring, bright and loving soul who always put others before herself,’ he continued.

‘Our hearts are broken and the pain is immense but we must move forward cherishing every wonderful moment we got to share with our treasured first child.

‘We thank the incredible team at the Sunshine Coast University Hospital for their tireless commitment to making her better and giving us the extra time we were able to spend with her.

‘It goes without saying that this is a very difficult time for family and friends and we trust we will all be allowed to grieve in privacy.’
