Press Statement for Jill Sinclair
26 March 2014

With deep regret, the SPZ Group and the Horn family announce that Jill Sinclair passed away on Saturday 22 March 2014, aged 61.

Wife of Trevor Horn and mother of Ally, Aaron, William and Gabriella, Jill co-founded the SPZ Group in 1984. She quickly became one of the most successful managers, and headed up some of the most successful publishing, record label and studio businesses, in UK music history.

She died peacefully at home in London, from cancer.

On behalf of the whole family, Trevor Horn, comments: “Jill was an inspiration in every aspect of her life, as my wife and as the mother of our children. She had an adventurous, maverick spirit and built up music businesses – and made her way through life – successfully and independently, and always on her own terms. She will be sorely missed.”

A funeral was held on Monday 24 March.

The family ask that no flowers are sent, preferring donations to the Royal Hospital for Neuro-Disability (http://www.rhn.org.uk), Cancer Research UK (http://www.cancerresearchuk.org), or the JTJ Trust Fund (http://www.jillsinclairandfrjimteelingtrustfund.com). No further statement or comment is available at this time.
