Jonathan Speirs 1958 – 2012
June 19 2012
Driving force behind a number of high profile projects; most recently undertaking the lighting design for the Sands Casino Resort, US and Edinburgh’s Usher Hall.

A statement posted on the Speirs + Major website read: “It is with great regret and deep personal sadness that we announce that Jonathan Speirs lost his fight against cancer on 18th June 2012.
“Since his terminal diagnosis in 2010 Jon showed characteristic strength and a steely determination to defy the life limiting constraints put upon him. He continued to work with us and travel widely until the end of 2011 finding energy and solace from the great loves of his life, his family and his work.
“Our thoughts are with Liz, Lucie, Erin, his sister, brothers and father. We will miss him dearly but will keep him with us, working to his and our primary objective: delivering great projects.”
