It is with deep sadness that Ayjay Group and its affiliated businesses announce the passing of our Group Managing Director, colleague and friend, Jason Beament.

Our thoughts and sympathies are with all his family at this time. He treasured his family. A loving husband, father, grandfather, brother, and son, he leaves behind his wife Jo, 3 children and 2 grandchildren.

His loss is such a great shock to us all, as with no underlying health conditions, he succumbed very quickly to complications from coronavirus.

It’s 25 years, this year, since Jason founded Ayjay Group with business partner Andrew Hall. Together they built a business that Jason was immensely proud of.

As key members of Ayjay Group, our thoughts are with his close friend and business partner Andrew and also with Jason’s brother Simon and son Paul, whom many in our industry will know and work with.

He will be missed greatly by the entire team. He was a true leader, entrepreneur, visionary, mentor to many, as well as a friend.

To all that knew him, it was clear Jason lived and loved work and developing the business(es) he was such an integral part of. He had a passion for building businesses and backing talented people, investing, and developing new ventures and mentoring budding/future entrepreneurs to give them an incredible platform in which to grow.

So many who have worked with him (business partners, staff, supply partners, customers) will know how important each and every project was to him and how much he valued the connections and friendships made along the way.

He has certainly left his mark on us all and we will take that knowledge and legacy to continue to drive each business forward in his memory.

Ayjay Group was especially important to Jason, and our teams will ensure the business continues with the same vision and values… for another 25 years.
