Jenni Morgan

Sapphire are heartbroken to announce that Jenni Morgan, mainstay of the East region and Hertfordshire Gymnastics Association, as well as being a much-loved coach at Sapphire, sadly died on March 1st at the age of 68.

She was the founder and voluntary Club leader at Cheshunt Gym Club based in Cheshunt, Herts from 1989-2001 producing many County and Regional Champions. She joined Sapphire in 2004 and immediately took on her own squad group coaching up to sixteen hours per week.

She produced endless champions for us at National, Regional and County levels both in voluntary and set exercises and all her gymnasts performed at a consistently high standard in all competitions

She resigned from her coaching in January due to ill health but continued to do competition entries for Sapphire as well as organising the Hertfordshire competitions until the end of February.

She was a British Gymnastics Employee in the Performance Pathway department from 2013-2016 and recipient of a BG Award of Merit in 2013.

One high point in her career was the winning of a Torch Trophy Trust award for outstanding voluntary service in 2011. She was very proud to receive her trophy from Princess Alexandra at a ceremony in London.

She became a club judge for Women’s Artistic in 1989 and had been a regional judge from 1993 to the present time, re-qualifying every four years and had judged in many competitions including our own Club Championship every year.

Her work output was immense and it is difficult to record everything that she did but suffice it to say that Sapphire will miss her dreadfully.

Our sympathies and thoughts are with her family – Keith, Claire and Scott.

Messages of condolences should be sent to Jennis' partner Keith Young
