He paid tribute to his dad saying, "My father, my friend, OSIEPA has rested.Brave, Thoughtful, Wise, Measured, Forthright and Loving. That’s who I have lost, that’s who we have lost.
Always referring to me as OSIEPA (my friend), my father never called me by name.The tree under whose canopy we dwelt, and in whose shade we gloried, has finally been cut. What a way to thank the efforts to give you life my friend. What a post-Valentine reward for all the love baba. Awuoro."
His wife, Syombua announced the sad news on her social media saying, "Baba, I don't know just how to eulogize you 😭😭 Those deep conversations, Your hearty laughter, Your remarkable wisdom, Your passionate love for God! A MAN OF THE PEOPLE!"
Adding, "Oh Dad, why didn't you just whisper to me that you were going? You quietly slipped in my hands amidst the so much pain you were going through, you slept Baba. I didn't know I would ever witness you die while holding you. Go well Tabby's Sweetheart, go well our father! You have fought a good fight, you have kept the faith, you have won the race, behold the crown awaits you Elder Jared Osiany Until the resurrection morning, GOODNIGHT Baba."
President Uhuru Kenyatta has sent a message of condolence to the family saying, “As a public servant, Mr Osiany was highly respected for his excellent service, high integrity and resourcefulness especially during his long tenure as the Community Services Manager at Sony Sugar Company in South Nyanza," President Kenyatta recalled.
Alongside his professional exploits, the President said Mr Osiany was an astute promoter of small, micro and medium size enterprises where he mobilized resources and offered professional expertise for budding entrepreneurs.
“We appreciate that in his retirement, Mr Osiany fully immersed himself in the small, micro and medium enterprises sector where he supported many upcoming entrepreneurs besides investing extensively in healthcare and agro-production," the President noted.
