Media in mourning as Deborah John loses battle with cancer

The media fraternity is today in mourning as news emerged that former Express Features Editor Deborah Jonn died on Wednesday night.

John, daughter of the late George John, passed away after a long battle with cancer. 

Her daughter Nadia made the announcement of her mother's passing on Facebook. 

"The family of Deborah John, Journalist and Publications/Features Editor of the Trinidad Express Newspapers wishes to announce her passing on August 23rd 2017 after a battle with cancer. 
Deborah leaves to mourn her daughter Nadia, and brothers Anthony and Gregory, sisters in law Paula and Lydia and family and friends. Funeral arrangements will be announced shortly. The John family thanks everyone for their support during this difficult time."

John's death is another blow for the Trinidad Express family who, just one year ago, mourned the death of Express Woman Editor Angela Martin Hinds.
