Jerry Juroe 1924-2021
Very saddened to report that long-time EON Productions employee Jerry Juroe has died at 98. What a life he got ... Among many things he worked with The Beatles and Marilyn Monroe as well as handled the publicity on 14 James Bond films from 1962 to 1989. But, above all, he was a very nice person and a great storyteller whose support for FSWL will never be forgotten. Rest in peace Jerry, we loved you.

Born on 19th September 1923, Jerry lived a life that few people will ever experience so it was a genuine privilege to help organise a launch party in London for his memoirs back in October 2018. An event attended by many Bond alumni that Jerry worked with over the years including John Glen, Peter Lamont, Sue St. John, Steven Saltzman (the son of Harry), Peter Davies, John Moreno, Alan Church, Caron Gardner, Carole Ashby, Margaret Nolan, Terry Madden, Anthony Waye, John Parkinson, and John Richardson.

James Bond producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G. Wilson wrote in an official statement:

“We are so very sad to hear that Charles ‘Jerry’ Juroe passed away yesterday. He made a huge contribution to the success of the series from the very first promotional tour to Italy in 1962 for Dr. No with Sean Connery to his retirement as Director of Marketing on Licence to Kill (1989). Our hearts go out to his daughter Kim.”

Other friends and colleagues of Jerry have shared their thoughts over his passing for FSWL's reader:

“Jerry seemed to have been around forever and made a great contribution to the success of the Bond series. Janine and I have very fond memories of spending time with Jerry and his wife, Lynne, travelling the world promoting my Bond films. Another of the originals, he will be sadly missed.” - John Glen

“Jerry was there from the day I was first interviewed for Octopussy ... to travelling the world together on two promotional tours for Octopussy and A View to a Kill. I have so many happy memories of him, especially at such an exciting time of my life. The Bond family have lost another precious member. RIP” - Carole Ashby

“Jerry was a kind and lovely man. We had wonderful times promoting the Bond movies. I have such fun memories! May he rest in peace. With love.” - Mary Stavin
