The House of Tranquillity Funeral Home Ltd. was established in 1995 and incorporated by the Registrar of Companies now the Companies Office of Jamaica on the 21st March 1995 .
The Company was founded by Joseph Michael and Opal Veronica Cornwall. At a very young age Joseph was interested in providing final care services for the deceased. It is with this in mind that he sought part-time employment with Madden’s Funeral Home. It was here where he learned both the Administrative and Mortuary Management Skills.
He has honed these skills through several courses in the United States of America and Puerto Rico, where he participated in Embalming and Operation of a Crematorium.
He was employed in the Government Service form 1972-1993. Until he opted for early retirement. While in the Government Service he excelled in all Educational Courses assigned to him. His favourites included Accounting, Systems and Procedures Management and Commercial Law.
He is no novice to the industry, as he co-founded the House of Serenity Funeral Home in 1982, which was placed under court liquidation in 1995.
He boasts over Forty (40) years of experience in the Funeral Industry. He is by no means selfish, having assisted former workers as well as Business Associates in starting their own Funeral home. The Company’s Mission Statement is “to provide Dignified Professional Services in a Modern State of the Art Facility at the most affordable cost.”
While the day to day operations at the House of Tranquillity is extremely arduous he still finds time to write letters to the Editor of both daily Gleaner and the Jamaica Observer on a wide range of topics affecting Jamaica and the World. He is also an event planner always managing to incorporate his love for Old hits Music and domino playing into all of his functions.

Gomex Technologies Limited, a Jamaican Company duly registered under the Laws of Jamaica under the Companies Act of 2004, was founded in March 2009 to respond to the need for
trained professionals in information security and computer forensics in the Caribbean. To fully realise this objective Gomex signed partnership agreements with top forensics hardware and software companies international. Gomex signed reseller agreements with Guidance Software Inc, AccessData, Logicube, Cellebrite and other top forensics brands. Gomex has since consulted with law enforcement in Jamaica, Curacao, Grenada, Turks and Caicos Islands, and the Cayman Islands. In 2009, Gomex became the first and currently the only Authorised Training Partner (ATP) for Guidance Software makers of the Award Winning EnCase Computer Investigative Software. In 2001, Gomex was presented with a plaque form Guidance Software as the Rising star of 2011 for outstanding performance as a young training entity. In 2011, Gomex trained and certified to international standards 15 officers of the Jamaica Constabulary Force. These officers acquired the skills set necessary to investigate computers and digital devices for evidence, using internationally accepted best practices and to present the evidence in a court of law.
In July 2011, Gomex found it necessary to separate the training business form the consulting business as a way of better organising products and services. Gomex Security Academy (GSA) was established to have a focused objective of provide professional training and certification to Jamaica and the Caribbean. To execute the mandate GSA signed an agreement with CompTIA, the world's most popular and vendor neutral certification and global information technology industry membership organisation. GSA then became a CompTIA Authorised Training partner offering a wide array of training programs for entry level information technology specialists. GSA then signed an agreement with the EC-Council internatio nal to become one of the two EC-Council Authorised Training Partner (ATP) in Jamaica to conduct training programmes in Ethical Hacking and other computer security related programs.
In September 2012, Gomex became a Pearson VUE Authorised Testing Centre to offer proctored exams for international certification bodies such as Cisco, Novell, CompTIA and many others. Within the first year of operation, Gomex proctored more than 120 Certifications exams to Jamaicans. Kryterion then approached Gomex to proctor their High-Stakes Online Secure testing service offering examinations in Communications and other college level proctored exams.
In 2013, with the demand for higher education, Gomex Security Academy (GSA) was renamed as Gomex Institute of Technology (GIT or Gomex Tech). This name change was needed to facilitate the comprehensive training programs and academic training that Gomex is now being positioning to take on. Gomex will continue to establish partnership with internat ional institutions to provide first class training programs to Jamaican and the Caribbean to a wider extent. Read more......Read less
