Jett Kenny spruiks dating app Bumble on Instagram following the tragic death of his sister Jaimi aged 33
Jett Kenny promoted Bumble on social media on Monday, two weeks after the tragic death of his older sister, Jaimi.
The model, 26, shared a video to his Instagram stories, explaining the benefits of the dating app.
‘I downloaded bumble over the weekend as I figured it was a good way to meet new people and start talking to new people considering COVID, you can’t really travel and meet people that way,’ he said.

‘The biggest thing I found is they have the distance [option] so you can swipe people interstate, which I thought was cool,’ he explained.
Jett ended: ‘Download it, have some fun and who knows maybe we’ll match. See you on there.’
Jett’s post comes one week after he returned to work as a model and shared a series of behind the scenes photos of himself looking dapper in a suit on a Sunshine Coast racecourse.
‘Something about suiting up,’ he captioned the photos.
The runway star wore his trademark blonde hair up. He paired the blue-grey suit with a crisp white shirt and brown boots.

Earlier this month, Jett shared a heartbreaking tribute to his beloved sister Jaimi.
‘You were there whenever I needed you, you taught me how to cook gourmet food like roast potatoes, chicken and salad, and tacos – the essentials in our household,’ he wrote.
‘You gave me a slight insight into fashion by dressing me in up in dresses and putting makeup on me when I was young. You’d sit behind me while I ate dinner and would pick at anything pimple looking on my back – even if it was just a mole,’ he added.
‘You were my second mother, you were my biggest sister, you were my friend, and you were a fighter until the very end,’ he continued.
