What they say

We are deeply saddened to announce that following a short illness, Jason lost his fight in the early hours of Monday 23rd January. His final hours were peaceful, surrounded by his family.

Jase lit up the Masterplan office with his banter and hilarious anecdotes. Whether he was holding court on work nights out or using his charm to great effect to get out of making teas and coffees, he was always the life and soul of everything he did and brightened the day of everyone who worked with him. He will be deeply missed by everyone on the team.

Jason’s family have set up a collection pot, collecting donations for local bereavement charity Beyond the Horizon on Jason’s behalf. A link to donate can be found here: In loving memory of Jason Dutton (collectionpot.com).

As a team, and as friends, everyone at Masterplan has cherished memories of their times, usually spent laughing, with Jase over the years. Some photos of some of those happy times and some words from Director and Long-time friend of Jase, John Draper, can be found below.

Some words from Masterplan Director and long-time friend of Jason, John Draper –

Jason has been a key part of our team since 2011 and I have been friends with both him and his wife Claire for more than twenty-five years. We have enjoyed the best times together. For those that knew Jason well, you know exactly what he brought, not just occasionally, but every time you spent time in his company. He is undoubtedly going to leave a massive hole in all of our lives.

Jason and I spoke about this sort of situation and that we would do whatever we could for each other. We will support Jason’s nearest and dearest as much as we can over the coming months.

I also want to make sure that all of Jason’s clients (who either were his friends before dealing with him or certainly became his friends once he had worked with you) are looked after as he would have wanted. To this end we have implemented the following arrangements for the short term:

Any emails to Jason’s email address will be sent to Katie, Liz and myself. For those that don’t know, Katie heads up our mortgage administration team and Liz is also a qualified mortgage and protection specialist who worked closely with Jason.

I also want to make sure that if anyone has any queries, they are able to pick up the phone to someone.

The office number is 0121 355 0905. I can also be contacted or messaged (preferably via WhatsApp) on 0778 753 4488. Liz can be contacted on 0121 289 2440 or by message on 07940 512496.

We plan to implement a more permanent solution in time and will of course advise you of our plans around this.
