Green, a dentist and the parliamentary representative for St. Mary South Eastern, died shortly after 5:00 am (local time) after he reportedly fell and hit his head at home. He was rushed to hospital where he was pronounced dead.
Opposition Leader and PNP President Dr Peter Phillips expressed shock and sadness at the death of Green, who contested the 2016 general election winning his seat by a mere five votes against the now ruling Jamaica Labour Party (JLP) candidate, Dr. Norman Dunn.
“Dr Green committed his life professionally and politically to serving the Jamaican people. He was a dedicated servant of the people and a man faithful to his commitment to his family, his profession, his constituents and his party,” Phillips said, adding “Jamaica has lost a great son. Our heart-felt condolences to his children Ashley and Wade, his family, friends and colleagues. He will be truly missed”.
The PNP in a statement said that his passion for community development and working with Jamaicans to maximise their potential became the driving force that propelled his entry into politics.
