Jem Marsh

Jem Marsh (1930 – 2015)

Jem Marsh (1930-2015) was a British engineer, motor manufacturer and race driver, perhaps best known as the co-founder of the sports-car manufacturer Marcos, the name being derived from a contraction of his’ and fellow founder Frank Costin’s surnames. Founded in 1959, the company was continued by Jem’s son Chris Marsh, until it was taken over by Canadian Tony Stellinga, and continued to produce automobiles until 2008 when it ceased production.

It is with great sadness that we must inform you that Jem Marsh has passed away peacefully on Monday the 2nd of March 2015, with his family at his bedside. Jeremy ‘Jem’ reached the respected age of 84 years.

The funeral was at 14.30 on Friday the 20th of March at the Trinity Church, Bradford On Avon.

We send our condolences and best wishes to Jem’s wife Lyn,  the family and all who were dear to him.
