Shock and Grief as Notts County Chief Executive Jason Turner Passes Away


Notts County has declared that Jason Turner, a highly respected chief executive, passed away suddenly last night.

The Magpies employed Turner in 2016, and he aided the club in navigating a challenging period off the field. He was referred to as "an exceptional CEO who was respected throughout football" and had previously worked for Bath City, Newport County, Plymouth Argyle, and Cardiff City.

The official Notts County website published a statement saying: "We are devastated to report the loss of our much-loved chief executive, Jason Turner.

"Jason, who passed away suddenly last night, was appointed in 2016 and devoted himself to the club thereafter. He was an outstanding CEO who was respected across football.

"Our thoughts are with his family and friends at this incredibly difficult time."

A statement from his parents, Jen and David, read: "Words cannot express our sadness following the loss of our dear son, Jason. We understand that his colleagues and many, many friends share this emotion. While we come to terms with this news, we request that our family's privacy be respected."

We at the Pride of Nottingham would like to extend our deepest condolences to everyone at the club and to the family and friends of Jason Turner. The sudden loss of such a highly respected and dedicated Chief Executive is a profound shock to all of us.

Jason was a true visionary leader who devoted himself to the club and helped navigate it through a challenging period. His hard work and dedication will always be remembered and his contribution to the club's success will never be forgotten.

We understand the sorrow and grief that the Notts County family is feeling during this difficult time, and we would like to offer our support in any way we can. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all as you come to terms with the loss of a beloved colleague and friend.

May the legacy of Jason Turner continue to inspire and guide the club towards a brighter future.

Rest in peace, Jason.
