One cannot travel internationally with an expired passport.

When I went in 2019, I found the entire process to be more about "did you bring American dollars" rather than whether you had a passport, or not.

 

So, I would not recommend trying to travel without it, but coming back to the US will be interesting without a current passport.

You’re seeking advice on traveling internationally without a valid passport? Pack extra underwear and maybe some snack bars on the off-chance they even let you get on a plane down there. You’re gonna get detained somewhere along the line and maybe not briefly.

You may want to ask that person how they did it as I don't think any US airline would allow international travel without a valid, unexpired passport.

The US authorities will not be impressed if this person is here with an expired passport either.

 

It does look like there is an online renewal - good luck!

Otherwise maybe check in at the nearest embassy. I can see the case where the traveler doesn't need a passport to go back to Jamaica as a resident there (it would sure be easier to have one, but let's say it can be done the hard way) but if there is some other way to prove identity on this end to board the aircraft I don't know.
