Siya ay naging SMDC vice president at isang equestrienne.
She was 29 years old.
She worked for SM Development Corporation (SMDC), the residential development arm of her father’s family company, as an assistant vice president and project director.
She unveiled SMDC’s community-building initiative, The Good Guys, in 2019.
According to an Inquirer Lifestyle profile, Sy received a bachelor’s degree in business and economics from Westmont College in Santa Barbara, California.
Jan died suddenly at the age of 29. According to accounts in the media, doctors believed Leptospirosis was the “highest possibility” for the disease.
The family released a statement to friends and family even before Jan was admitted to the hospital, revealing that doctors had ruled out Covid-19, hepatitis, dengue fever, and malaria at the time.
A statement said, “They are still not sure what this is, but the highest possibility is that it is bacterial infection that resulted in leptospirosis. This is possible if even a small cut that can go unnoticed is made.” It was also added that “no signs of a disease” or virus brewing had been visible in Jan and that she was “young and strong.”
Her family also reported that she was given three powerful antibiotics and steroids before she died in an effort to kill the bacteria.
Devastating to hear the passing of Sis. Jan Catherine Sy, daughter of my good friend and brother in Christ Henry (Big Boy) Sy, Jr 🙏😭💔🙏 Our deepest sympathies to her family and loved ones. Much love and prayers 🙏🙏🙏
