JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Macky Weaver, who has served in a variety of marketing roles for the Jacksonville Jaguars for the past 19 years, has announced his resignation Monday.
Weaver, who has been senior vice president of sales since 2010, will remain on staff for the remainder of the year as a consultant to Jaguars president Mark Lamping. Weaver is leaving to pursue other career opportunities, according to a release.
"Macky Weaver is one of a handful of people who can say they helped put the Jaguars on the map here in Jacksonville, and he should always be very proud of that," Jaguars owner Shad Khan said. "I'll always appreciate his personal efforts to introduce me to the community and make me feel at home as the new owner of the Jaguars."
Weaver is the nephew of former Jaguars owner Wayne Weaver.
"I would like to thank Wayne and Shad for giving me the opportunity they have given me over the past 19 years," Macky Weaver said. "I am proud of the people I worked with and what we were able to accomplish, especially the past three years of having all home games televised. Finally, I will always be the biggest Jaguars supporter as I understand what the Jaguars mean to Jacksonville. I will continue to make sure our community doesn't lose sight of that importance."
