CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Jon Richardson, the oldest son of Carolina Panthers owner Jerry Richardson and the former president of the team's stadium, has died.
The Panthers said Jon Richardson died Tuesday following a lengthy fight against cancer. He was 53.
In a statement, the team called Richardson ``a great friend of many people throughout the organization'' and said he played ``an integral role in the history of the Panthers'' in the construction of Bank of America Stadium.
Richardson was president of Panthers Stadium LLC from its inception in 1994 until his resignation in 2009.
He played college football at North Carolina in the late 1970s and early 1980s.
