Cllr Simon Dudley, leader of the council said:
“I am deeply saddened to announce the sudden passing of Cllr Jesse Grey last night.
“Cllr Grey was a passionate public servant and served as a councillor for the Royal Borough for over 18 years, taking on a number of roles during his tenure. Firstly as mayor during 2009/10, previously as a cabinet member for communities and culture and more recently as cabinet member for environmental services, parking and flooding.
“Cllr Grey was a committed councillor and worked tirelessly to support his constituents across the Datchet ward. His enthusiasm, dedication and commitment will be deeply missed by all.
“On behalf of everyone at the Royal Borough, we would like to extend our deepest sympathies to Cllr Grey’s family and friends, including his wife Christine who served with him during his mayoral year as Mayoress, his children, Angela and Martin and his beloved grandchildren Jack, Anna, Eva, Ella and Isabella.
“We would request that Cllr Grey’s family’s privacy is respected during this difficult time.
“A further announcement with funeral arrangements will be made in due course.”
Due to Cllr Grey’s sudden death the flood liaison group meeting due to take place this evening, of which he was chairman, has been cancelled as a mark of respect.
