Leaders of the Nation mourn the passing of Jane Usher

At today’s Special Sitting of the House, Prime Minister Dean Barrow and Leader of the Opposition John Briceno opened the session with a moment of silence and spoke of Usher’s passing.

Rt.Honorable Dean Barrow, Prime Minister of Belize

Rt.Hon.Dean Barrow, Prime Minister:Ms.Jane who was of course not just a parliamentarian and a minister of government but indeed an institution. We talk about Holy Redeemer Credit Union but she was synonymous with that credit union and I know that there was a time when the assets of HRCU were greater than the assets of Atlantic Bank. I’m sure that’s not the case any longer, Atlantic Bank has grown, but the point I’m trying to make is that she in fact led that credit union in such a way that it became more powerful than a number of the local commercial banks. Local commercial banks with international affiliations that have gone the way of all flesh but HRCU continues to endure and it is due principally to the outstanding leadership of that outstanding Belizean woman. We know that she is the sister of our national hero but in her own right she was a Belizean heroine and I think it is just fit and proper that we mark her passing with a moment of silence.”

Hon. John Briceno, Opposition Leader

John Briceno, Opposition Leader:Madam speaker please allow me also to thank the Prime Minister for his kind words about Ms.Jane. We in the PUP loved Ms. Jane and admired her greatly. Yes the Prime Minister is right that Ms.Jane was the area representative for the Pickstock division and even the Minister of Housing, but very few people remember that. People remember Ms.Jane for the work that she has done at Holy Redeemer Credit Union that most people when they talk about HRCU they say ‘I’m going to see Ms.Jane.’ meaning that they are going to Holy Redeemer Credit Union and it was amazing the life, that she had that she worked probably until earlier this year when she had a spill and broke her pelvic bone. It was just amazing what Ms.Jane has done, that she has touched the lives of thousands upon thousands of Belizeans the small man and woman that doesn’t have access to the bank that can go to Ms.Jane borrow a little money to send their children to have an education or build a small house and from that she built an institution that is probably considered the most important financial institution in this country because the ordinary man and woman and children have access to Holy Redeemer Credit Union. I also join the Prime Minister and agree with him fully that Ms.Jane should be considered a national heroine, I think right now they refer to everyone as heroes and that maybe it’s something that we should consider even after her death that we should consider honoring her and making her a national hero of Belize. So I thank you Prime Minister and all our colleagues and our love goes to the Price and Usher family. We will be praying for them and I’m sure thousands of Belizeans are going to join us in mourning the death of our beloved Ms.Jane.”
