In remembrance of Peter Morrow

November 5, 2019

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Peter Morrow, co – owner of Jamaica Inn. Mr Peter, as he is affectionately known, died on Thursday, October 31, 2019 in a plane crash in northern Florida. The entire Jamaica Inn family mourns this loss.  On behalf of our Board of Directors, Management team and Employees, we extend our deepest sympathies to Morrow family.

Kyle Mais, General Manager of Jamaica Inn, issued the following statement on behalf of the Jamaica Inn team:

As you all know, Peter was an integral part of the Jamaica Inn family who brought his remarkable passion, intuition and love for people to the Jamaica Inn brand.  Mr. Peter lived a wonderful insightful life and enjoyed being on property sharing the benefits of the Jamaica Inn’s special atmosphere with all guests who come into our care. No words can adequately express our sadness regarding Sir Pete’s passing or the great privilege we had of working with him. We will honor his life and legacy by continuing to work hand in hand as a family making sure his beloved Jamaica Inn continues to flourish and bring joy and happiness to all who pass through.

Peter Morrow’s Early Life

Peter first came to Jamaica as a very young boy when his father Charles Morrow built and opened the Montego beach hotel that opened in the very early 50s. He enjoyed running up and down the halls knocking on guest room doors which of course irritated his father and the guests! As a teenager he loved spending time over the holidays at the Montego Beach where there were always plenty of young ladies on holiday as well!

After living and studying in London and Paris he started his hotel career in the 60s by working the night shift at The Roosevelt Hotel in New York City. He then moved on to the Equinox House in Vermont followed by a stint at the Ritz Carlton in Montreal. He was lucky to then spend time working at The Coral Reef Club in Barbados under the sharp eye of Budge and Cynthia O’Hara where he learnt even more about the inner workings of the hotel business. Having a great base in hotel work he switched direction and opened a business with his brother Eric in the other old Morrow family business which were retail stores called Morrow’s Nut House and they owned and operated a chain of those stores in malls across the states and the U.K.

When Mr. Morrow senior retired, Peter and his brother took over the operation of the Jamaica Inn in the 1980’s and he loved his time there forever looking at new ways of keeping an classic hotel running and current yet not changing the ambiance and essence for which is still known around the world. He took great pleasure in meeting guests from everywhere and talking to them about life, philosophy and politics. To demonstrate his love of engagement, he recently took umbrage with the fact that the Inn introduced coffee makers in our rooms as it perhaps meant less people to talk to in the early mornings.

He sat in the same chair every day where he could observe all the comings and goings and keep a interested eye on the operation to ensure that we delivered the very best service possible while at the same checking in with the team to ensure they were happy, enjoying their jobs and taking great pride in working at the Inn. His greatest love however was flying and he had his pilot’s license at the age of 15 way before he had a driver’s license. He literally flew every day that he possibly could and would think nothing of flying somewhere for a cup of coffee or lunch. We take solace in knowing he left us doing what he loved best.

    We were heart-broken to hear of Peter’s death, not two weeks removed from our amazing first stay at the Jamaica Inn in mid-October. From his open one-chair “office”, to his easy nature, to his quiet humor and casual grace, to his accommodating manner, Peter was a true gentleman, a caring custodian, and a passionate believer in being in the here and now. And what better place? I had several long talks with Peter, about being present, about the Inn, about politics, and sailing and flying. Not once did he ever seem rushed, or distracted. Rather was was eager to engage. And on the day we left, he was a big reason we vowed to return. And we will, because we know the Inn, its staff, and its very heart come from Peter’s spirit, and will endure. We are so sorry for the loss you Eric, your family, and the Jamaica Inn family have experienced. Know that Cheryl and I will return. With warmth, Rick & Cheryl Gibson

    First of all I would like to say superb blog!
    I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you do not
    mind. I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear
    your head prior to writing. I’ve had a difficult time clearing
    my mind in getting my thoughts out there.
    I truly do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or hints?
    Thank you!

    We are so sorry to hear about Peter. He was a true Renaissance man if there ever was one.
    One quick “Peter” story – we will never forget: Many years ago Connie and I had planned some days at Jamaica Inn – but had to cancel at the last minute due to a sick child at home. There were no alternative dates open in the near future, so we were stumped. Your folks called me back the next day and said Mr. Peter had offered to move out of his lodgings for whatever days we needed.
    Well, we took up his offer to come “home”, and had a ball for several days. On the second day – while I was swimming out in front, I was astounded when Peter’s plane came over the top of the Inn and out over the water – almost at tree level!
    He said later one of his favorite things was to fly over the island – free as a bird.
    Peter was the definition of a gentleman, and more importantly, of generosity. We will never forget him.
    Love to all,
    Connie and Ben Philips

      For Lydia and I, our fond memories of Peter will always be intertwined with our experience of and love for the Jamaica Inn. He was always watchful, always helpful, always happy to be of service. Peter was one of a kind and a true gentlemen. He will be sorely missed for many, many years to come. Our heartfelt condolences to the entire Jamaica Inn family, of which we are proud to be counted as junior members.

    We all are so sorry to learn about sad demise of Peter. me and my wife came last year to arrange wedding of my daughter Pragati to Nico. It was very strange not to see Peter during our stay from 29th October , through the wedding and only after the wedding Kyle broke the news to all the staff and us. We did appreciate this silence so it does not affect the event. We feel for the family and all the dedicated staff of JI. Deep condolences and lots of love to all. Suresh and Anita Pragati and Nico

      Hello Suresh,
      Thank you your kind words and taking the time to leave a review. It was a pleasure to host you and your family.
      We wish you all the very best.

  7. Martin & Donna

    We are so saddened to hear about Peter. He was such a wonderful person. We looked forward to seeing him each visit. During our recent visit last month, we chatted a while out on the patio. My husband was showing him pictures of the tiki bar he build in our yard and Peter provided a contact number where we could get year around thatch for the roof! He will be greatly missed.

  8. Tim McGee and Mary Mullens

    We were deeply saddened to hear of Peter’s death. We had become friends over the years during our visits to the Inn. Peter was a gracious and caring host who made us feel special on every visit. Whether it was learning about his love of flying, being persuaded of the benefits of self observation and mindfulness, or being let in on the secrets he’d taught the kitchen on how to make perfect French toast (“you have to really soak the bread in the egg wash!” he said with obvious excitement), we never seemed to run out of things to talk about. As we said our goodbyes in the portico last March and encouraged him to fly up to Victoria over the summer, we never thought it would be the last time we would see him. Rest in Peace good friend. All our deepest sympathies to the Morrow Family and to our friends at Jamaica Inn.

    I am so sorry for your loss but find it comforting that someone dies doing what they loved, and quickly.

    I was luck enough to meet Peter one day at the Inn when I was scooting from our room to the lobby for an early morning coffee. Peter was at the desk and I spyed a book lay splayed on a chair closeby (a spot that I will now always call Peter’s Perch) with an image that can only be described as a Rorschack inkblot – I was wholly intrigued! Me being me, I got my coffee and waited to see who would fetch the book. Peter walked over, sat down, and opened the book – I took that opportunity to introduce myself and ask what he was reading. I would like Peter to know that conversation had a profound effect on my life – the book was “Self-Observation: An Owner’s Manual” and Peter not only highly recommended it but also offered me his email address to touch base if I ever wanted to discuss the subject more. I bought the book and although I never took Peter up on his email offer, I think about him, his openness toward me, his wisdom, and the impact of his kindness on my life. Peter – you were a gem and although you will be sorely missed by many far and wide for a long time to come, in the end you were living your best life up to the very end. With respect and gratitude,

  11. Bruce & Shannon Anderson

    We are so deeply sorry for your loss. It is also a heartfelt loss for all of us who love the Inn.
    Our favorite memory of Peter is when he came to our home in Florida for a visit one afternoon 10-15 years ago. We have a painting of the lobby of the Inn that hangs in our front room above the fireplace. When he walked in the front door and saw it, his jaw dropped in astonishment. He had never seen the painting before and took a photo. We enjoyed a most pleasant afternoon with Peter being our guest for a change.

  12. Maggie and Mike

    Peter was one of nature’s true gentlemen. On our last visit he was not present, we neither received a welcome or a farewell. Sad

  13. Lyn Wrisdale

    Very sad news. Our condolences to both family and staff at Jamaica Inn. We have very much enjoy our time at Jamaica Inn over the past 4 years and Stephen will miss his early morning coffee chat with Peter sitting in this chair on the veranda. He always made us feel so welcome.

  14. Stephen and Julie Evans

    Stephen and I would like to extend our deepest condolences to the Morrow family. Sadly we never met Peter but it is obvious from all the heartfelt comments he will be missed by many guests as well as his family.

  15. Darlene Farabee

    My husband and I were very saddened to hear of Peter’s death. We first visited Jamaica Inn this past June, and we did not get to meet Peter, but we did get to hear stories about him from Eric and the staff. It sounded like he was a delightful, adventure-loving man who will be sorely missed. We offer our sincere sympathy to his family and friends.

    “Begin again and again the never-attainable praising; remember: the hero lives on;
    even his downfall was merely a pretext for achieving his final birth.” Onward and ever upward dear Peter. (Rilke, Elegy 1)

    My husband and I had the pleasure of sharing a cup of coffee with Peter when we visited the Inn for our 10th wedding anniversary. During our conversation, he encouraged me to read The Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle – something I had attempted in the past and failed. It’s been 6 years since Peter’s suggestion – I think I will try again in his honor. Our deepest condolences to the Morrow family and the Jamaica Inn.

  18. Elisa Liberatori Prati

    Dear Jamaica Inn Family — owners and staff — you gave us moments of unsurpassed peace and joy at the Inn. For this reason we wished that destiny would spare difficult times and sadness to all of you at the magic Inn. It is not the case in these days: we feel close to you and mourn your loss with you. Warm regards and condolences, Elisa & Honoré

  19. Jeanine

    RIP dear Peter Morrow – you have been part of my life since early teens, and when Rudi was the GM there and every Summer we spent there…Raquel and I will never forget your kind words, philosophies and wisdom. Your advice was always well received and I thank you for it. You will be missed by all your friends, family, extended family and beyond xo

  20. Michael and Lesley Arietti

    Our deepest condolences to the Morrow family and to Jamaica Inn on your loss We always recognized Peter on our visits and know how much he did to make Jamaica Inn such a wonderful place. He leaves a wonderful legacy.

  21. Richard Lyon

    We are both saddened to hear the news of Peter’s untimely death. He was a friendly face to see each day, sitting and chatting to everyone passing by. He will be sorely missed at the Jamaica Inn. Our thoughts and prayers will be with all at the Jamaica Inn at this sad and difficult time.
    Richard and Anne Lyon

  22. Kayann and Robert

    Our condolences to the Morrow family and the staff of Jamaica Inn who loved him dearly. Our discussions with Peter during our visits clearly showed his passion for what he did. We only had our last interaction on October 26th as he gave us a tour of the private vilas as we vowed we would return soon and were certainly looking forward to our next chat with Peter. Life can be so fleeting but it is clear he lived a full life. His spirit will live on at the Jamaica Inn. Rest in peace “world boss’ (as his staff affectionately called him).

  23. Bill&LESLEY Waldman

    Eric, it is with complete sadness that we read your article on the death of your brother Peter.Our condolences
    go out to you and the entire Morrow Family. He was a very,very special person.
    When we first came to the Inn many years ago Peter was the first to welcome us. After we had gone to our room and unpacked we ventured back to speak with him. And without saying it, he knew we would have liked a larger room. He said, ” is your room comfortable for you two or may I show you something larger?” He did,
    they moved us that day. Since then, we have enjoyed the villas and think about what Peter did. We have missed seeing him the last two years and was hoping on seeing him this year.
    Eric, your article was beautiful and brought tears to Lesley and I. Always keep him in your heart and he will be with you forever. We will see you in April.
    Bill & Lesley Waldman

  24. Tina and Emery Moore

    Having visited Jamaica Inn many times, starting approximately 1966, we have always felt close to the Morrow family. Peter’s loss is certainly monumental for the Morrow family and the extended family of JI guests. There are very few hotels in this world that compete with the friendliness, quality and hospitality of JI and Peter was a large part of everything at JI. We will miss seeing Peter and extend our heartfelt best wishes to Eric.

    My heart is heavy learning about Peter’s passing. I had the tremendous honor of teaching Jamaica Inn’s first mindfulness retreat this October. Peter participated in every session we had, often sharing is wise insights on mindfulness and the philosophy for living fully. Over the past few years, Peter and I cultivated a dear friendship, often talking on the phone over the topics of expanding consciousness and mindful living. He was a true teacher and his passion was infectious. I’m grateful that the world was gifted by Peter’s presence. May you soar free, dear friend. We’ll love you, always.

  26. MPT

    We were fortunate to have met Peter during our stay at the Inn June 2019 where this very approachable man shared his insights into his peaceful and passionate lifestyle. It was obvious he was on the right path. I came to look for him each time we approached the Concierge. I am so sorry to hear of his passing. I am sure his spirit will live on at the Inn and in the people with whom he came in contact. Our Condolences to his Family and Friends.

  27. Donovan & Michele Perkins

    Whenever we went to Jamaica Inn and he was there..he would always be the most reliable greeter, pleasantly sitting in “his chair”, often with Shadow. He has left an incredible personal and hotel family behind, and we are thinking of you all at this difficult time. Our deepest sympathies.

  28. Michael and Margaret Snowdon

    It was a pleasure to meet Peter. He went out of his way to ensure he spoke to us and made us feel welcome. A charming and interesting man. Our condolences to Jamaica Inn

    1. Deirdre Irlam

      Such great happy memories – Thank you Peter.

  29. Paul & Susan Nixon

    We met Peter on our first visit to Jamaica Inn 3 years ago. Peter made us feel most welcome and we were looking to seeing him on our return visit next week. The news of Peter’s sudden passing is a huge shock for all. We send our condolences to the Morrow family, the family of the mechanic and the team at Jamaica Inn at this sad time.

    The only thing that seems appropriate is this
    High Flight
    By John Gillespie Magee, Jr.
    (A sonnet written by John Gillespie Magee, an American pilot with the Royal Canadian Air Force in the Second World War.)
    “Oh, I have slipped the surly bonds of earth,
    And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings;
    Sunward I’ve climbed and joined the tumbling mirth of sun-split clouds –
    and done a hundred things You have not dreamed of –
    wheeled and soared and swung high in the sunlit silence.
    Hovering there I’ve chased the shouting wind along
    and flung my eager craft through footless halls of air.
    “Up, up the long delirious burning blue
    I’ve topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace,
    where never lark, or even eagle, flew;
    and, while with silent, lifting mind I’ve trod
    the high untrespassed sanctity of space,
    put out my hand and touched the face of God.”

  31. Tony and Rachel Stewart

    What very sad news! We live in N. Fla and heard the news of the plane crash but obviously had no idea who the occupants were.
    We had many wonderful conversations with Peter when he would talk about his father and the old days at the Inn.
    I always remember sitting on our balcony, before the evening cocktail hour, and seeing Peter walking across the lawn, from one of the chalets, spruced up and ready for the evenings festivities. We knew then that it was time for us to also get ready!
    Our deepest condolences to the Morrow family and also the Jamaica Inn family. I know he will be greatly missed.

  32. John and Mary Lou Stewart

    Eric, we are so deeply sorry for the tragic and sudden loss of your Brother, Peter. We extend our most sincere condolences to you, and each member of the Morrow family and to the Jamaica Inn family. Our thoughts and prayers are with each of you during this most difficult time.

  33. Alan Suleyman

    I was both shocked and saddened to learn of the untimely loss of Peter Morrow. I recount below my first ever meeting with Peter and the profound effect our ensuing conversation had on my life.
    On my very first stay at Jamaica Inn (many years ago!) I was sitting in the reception area near the bar, noisily arguing on the phone with my office staff in London, UK. At that time, I was CEO of a large travel company and we were just finalising our tour programme for the following year and there were deadlines to meet, contracts to sign and airlines to negotiate with. I scarcely had time to acknowledge Peter who I later learned was sitting in his regular spot at the next table, quietly reading his book.
    After 15 or 20 minutes of heated debate between myself and various companies and individuals half way round the world, I finally took a 2-minute break and ordered a drink. I was so engrossed in my own “goings on” that I hardly noticed Peter ambling up to my table and asking if he could sit with me. I remember being slightly annoyed at being disturbed and wondering who this man was and why he wanted to engage with me especially as he could quite clearly see that I was in the middle of my own “self-created” mayhem. I grudgingly accepted his request to sit and for the first time, took a long hard look at him. What I saw looking back at me was a calm, serene man who looked to all intents and purposes like a local chap seeking the usual “Are you enjoying your stay in Jamaica?” type of dialogue. Oh, how wrong I was….
    For the next 25 to 30 minutes I was engaged and indeed enthralled by this obviously worldly wise man who had so much natural serenity and calmness about him that at first I thought he had “imbibed of the local herb” only to slowly realise that what he actually possessed was a deep and absolute abundance of pure spirituality.
    Without going into too much detail, at the end of our conversation, not only was I a much wiser and well-informed human being, but I was given a small introduction into the concept of Meditation and Mindfulness (years before such things became fashionable). Peter introduced me to an author called Eckhart Tolle and implored me to read some of his books. He said it would help me immeasurably and teach me to be calm and serene regardless of the situation.
    Armed with this new-found knowledge and a reading list to match, on my return to London I ordered “The Power of Now” and to be honest, I have never looked back! My life has not changed immeasurably but my ability to cope with the ups and downs of day to day living has. To say Peters gentle intervention was life-changing would be an understatement. The fact that he took the trouble to approach me and offer me a guiding hand is something that I will always be grateful for.
    His calmness and humanity has left an indelible aura on the whole fabric of the Jamaica Inn. Regardless of the passage of time, Peters (and the Jamaica Inn’s) calmness and serenity is something that will always be treasured by people lucky enough to have experienced it.
    A great loss to us all.

  34. Carolyn Buck

    We were so saddened and shocked to learn this. Peter was such an integral part of our experiences at the Jamaica Inn. We will remember him sitting by reception, observing his guests and staff, to ensure everything was just so. He will be greatly missed , but will live on in our memories. Our thoughts and love go to the Jamaica Inn Family, and to the Merrow family.

    We are so sad to hear about Peters death. Our thoughts and prayers to Eric, the Morrow Family and all the Jamaica Inn Family. We had fun last year talking to Peter about the Morrow Nut Shop in Utica NY – where my mother worked many years ago! We will miss Mr. Peter with all of you.

  36. Karen Wilk

    I am so sorry to hear of Peter’s death. I was at the Jamaica Inn in May (2019) and had the pleasure of meeting and chatting with Peter. He was part of what made the Jamaica Inn so special. My condolences to the Morrow family and his Jamaica Inn family. He will be missed.

  37. Beverly Valentine

    In February we stayed at Jamaica Inn for the first time. Peter was that fixture as we arrived for breakfast. That image will stay with me. I too agree that it is a shame to have coffee makers in the rooms. I was so thrilled not to have a TV. I told him how much I enjoyed the spa and hope to return for the best facial ever in Feb next year. We should keep his mindfulness approach to life in our daily lives. A life well lived and regrettably cut too short.

  38. Louise Penny

    So desperately sad. Peter was as much a part of the Jamaica Inn as the sun and sand. We chatted every day, he in his usual chair. Always kind. Always interested and interesting. He was especially kind to my husband. Such a gentle man. My heart is aching for Eric, Belinda, and the Jamaica Inn family.

  39. Stephen P. Meier Jr.

    Amy and I are very saddened to hear of Peters’ passing! Our stay at the Jamaica Inn is fondly remembered and he was always graciously interesting to talk to. Thoughts and prayers to your family and wonderful staff!

  40. Seamus and Sue Leahy

    We were deeply saddened to hear about Peter. We had the pleasure of having a few lovely conversations with him during our last visit in May. Our thoughts go out to Eric and all of the Morrow and Jamaica Inn family.

  41. Gloria Schenk

    It is with deep regret and such sadness to hear of the death of Peter. He will be such a great loss not only to his immediate Family, the Jamaica Inn Family, but also to our Hospitality Industry.
    May he rest in peace.
    Sincere condolences to all.

  42. Mary Bradley

    My daughter and I spent her 18th birthday at the Jamaica Inn. When we met Peter, we shared all our plans for the week and when we asked him what else we should do, he told us to cancel half our plans and just slow down and enjoy the beach and each other. We took his advice and bonded more on that beach than we ever would have being tourists. When we left, Peter gave my daughter a wood box of the inn with a bit of sand so she can always remember her birthday at the Jamaica Inn. Peter is an indelible part of our Jamaica Inn memories — as I know he is for some many people who have and the honor of meeting him. He will be missed.

    1. Karen Wilk

      I am so sorry to hear of Peter’s death. I was at The Jamaica Inn in May (2019). I had the pleasure of meeting and chatting with Peter. He was part of what made the Inn so special and so classy. My condolences to the Morrow family and his Jamaica Inn family. He will be missed.

  43. Janie ZOHRER

    We were so sorry to hear your sad news about Peter. It is always dreadful to lose somebody you have known all your life and with whom you’ve shared so much.
    He was a really nice man and so the world will be a little more drab without him.
    Our deepest sympathies to you and all the family.
    Janie & George Zohrer

  44. Polin and David

    We are really sad to hear of this unexpected news. More so when I remember
    how I mistakenly remarked to Peter on our visit that one photo of Pete’s younger days was Donald Trump.
    I am still embarrassed by what I innocently blurted out. Both David and I will remember fondly
    Peter’s hospitality and Eric’s charm. The chair might be empty, but the style of service that he insisted on will still be felt by all forthcoming guests. We will be back to such a calm and mindful Inn.

  45. Tim & Sharon Beauchamp

    Our condolences to you (Eric), your family and the entire Jamaica Inn staff. This is as a shock to Sharon and me, heartbreaking. Peter was an amazing individual, so sincere. He made such a positive impact on our lives during our stay. We’re praying that God’s strength will be present with you, especially in this extremely difficult time.

    My husband & I have been coming to JI for over 25 years . This news is absolutely tragic . Peter was there for our first visit 25 years ago , and for many many others . He was such fun & so interesting , always the gentleman with wonderful stories to keep all amused . On one trip Joey & I extended our time as Peter convinced us that we should move into The Blue Cottage & continue the revelry .We are heartbroken for all his family & for everyone at JI who are surely feeling this sad loss . In March we will drink a toast to him when we are there .

  48. Keith & Michelle

    This is so sad. Peter was the first person to greet us, and the last to say farewell. He epitomised Jamaica Inn and delighted in sharing it with us – as he did with all his guests. I will forever see him sitting in that special spot, early morning and late night, keeping an eye on things. Most of all I will remember him for his charm. Our condolences to you and the Jamaica Inn family.

  49. Barbars West

    Our sincerest condolences to the Morrow family and everyone at Jamaica Inn, he will be sorely missed,

  50. Paddy Mitchell

    We visited the Inn for the first time in March and were immediately captivated by the Hospitality it offers. As a retired Hotelier I really appreciated the traditional standards it has to offer, long gone in many hotels today. It was clear that this came from the Morrow Family so much in evidence during our stay. Had many chats with Peter reflecting on all this. Have booked again next year and was looking forward to seeing him again. Sadly not to be. Such a great loss. Our hearts go out to the Morrow Family and the wider Family, the incredible staff. He will be truly missed.

  51. Sirine and Lars

    Dear Eric and the rest of the Jamaica Inn family. We are so sorry to hear of your loss. We remember Peter from our wonderful stay at Jamaica Inn a couple of years ago now, he would always greet us in passing. It seems like he left us doing something he loved, but indeed way too early. Our sincere condolences from Oslo, Norway.


    Near a shady wall a rose once grew,
    Budded and blossomed in God’s free light,
    Watered and fed by morning dew,
    Shedding its sweetness day and night.
    As it grew and blossomed fair and tall,
    Slowly rising to loftier height,
    It came to a crevice in the wall,
    Through which there shone a beam of light.
    Onward it crept with added strength,
    With never a thought of fear or pride,
    It followed the light through the crevice’s length,
    And unfolded itself on the other side.
    The light, the dew, the broadening view
    Were found the same as they were before;
    And it lost itself in beauties new,
    Breathing its fragrance more and more.
    Shall claim of death cause us to grieve,
    And make our courage faint or fail?
    Nay! Let us faith and hope receive:
    The rose still grows beyond the wall.
    Scattering fragrance far and wide,
    Just as it did in days of yore,
    Just as it did on the other side,
    Just as it will for evermore.
    Poem by A. L. Frink

    We are shocked and saddened to learn of Peter’s passing, and that of the others involved in the terrible accident. Our hearts and prayers go out to everyone involved. May God grant peace and comfort during this difficult time.

  54. Maria Clair and Yana Sakellion

    Dear Eric and all the members of Jamaica Inn family,
    Please kindly accept our deepest condolences and heartfelt sympathy, – this is indeed the irreplaceable loss for all of us. Peter will always live in our memories and hearts as a very special and friendly person.

    Peter was a joy to talk with! His greeting was always so genuine! Welcome home! Loved visiting with him on the beach. His stories were fascinating. His love for Jamaica and the Jamaica Inn was so obvious. RIP Peter. You will be sorely missed.


    Dear Eric and Family,
    My husband Joe and I were at the Inn for the second time on October 5, 2019. My Mom had passed away 4 days earlier and I explained to Peter that I had a longing to be there and it was the only place I wanted to be in my mourning. He found me shortly after with a book in hand on the topic of self-observation and mindfulness. He thought it may help me through my grief and wrote his email and phone inside the cover and offered to speak with me about it if I had questions.
    Likewise, when a young man, another guest, offered to play Ave Maria on the piano for me to honor my Mother, Peter asked that the maintenance staff stop running the lawn mower so that I could hear the song he was playing for me.
    I met Peter twice and am so sad to hear this news and will miss his greeting upon our next return. Our deepest condolences go out to all of Peter’s family and friends.
    Sincerely, Carol and Joe Renzo

    Dear Eric and family
    Ron and l were very sad when we got your message this morning. We came to the Jamaica Inn the first time in 1972, and have had the pleasure of knowing your Dad and Archie when they were seating where Peter was after. We can feel your lost, l always felt like the Jamaica Inn was a second home to us. May God be at your side during this devastating time. Fondly. Ron & Mauricette

    To remember Peter …
    Having been a devotee of the Jamaican in for over sixty years …. Tonight I am sad ..
    Only once or twice did Peter and I enter into a serious conversation .. BUT HIS MAIN OBJECTIVE WAS TO SHARE HIS IDEAS ON HOW TO ACHIEVE A MORE PRODUCTIVE AND

  59. Cherylann fella

    So saddened . A true gentleman . I had the pleasure of his company this past March for the first time .
    His professionalism and kind heart ❤️ ALoss to his family and staff and to those whom will never have the chance to chat with him in “ paradise”

  60. Jeff Flicker

    Having been in the travel business for roughly thirty years, I had the ocassion to meet Peter several times during sales calls to my office in suburban Philadelphia. One time, he hosted an appreciation dinner for several travel agents, thanking them for their business, and I was fortunate to be one of them. Peter was always quick with a quip and had a sharp-as-a-tack sense of humor. I used to joke with him that when he heard I was coming to the Inn, he’d get out of Dodge, because I never had the good fortune of having him on site when my wife and I would visit. I’ll always have very fond memories of Peter. To Eric and the whole Jamaica Inn family, my deepest condolences. He will truly be missed.

  61. Don and Helen Yu

    From the lobby we can see the sky and sea and beach and trees, and Shadow crossing, and Peter sitting in his chair comfortable as the Wedgewood Blue. Helen and I shared a long moment of silence this morning thinking of Peter. We will miss him.

  62. Georgia Shockley

    Ron and I send our condolences, prayers, and thoughts to the Morrow family, the family of the mechanic, and all the wonderful and dear people who are the Jamaica Inn family.

  63. Eugene Melnyk

    My sincere condolences to the Morrow family and everyone at Jamaica Inn. May he rest peacefully…..

  64. Somewhere in the deepest of blue skies there is a new inn opening where this gracious, remarkable man will be welcomed with the kindness that he always showed others. Thank you for the genuine hospitality that you have always shown us. Our heartfelt wishes to all of your family.

    Sincere condolences to you, the Morrow family and the Jamaica Inn family. We always enjoyed the interesting chats with Peter – urbane, charming, intellectually curious. A particular memory: Peter would often walk the beach and ask about books ( we were reading, and a few years ago, he expressed frustration that many people were now reading books on their Kindle/e-reader; not that he disapproved, but that with the use of e-readers, he could not immediately tell what a guest was reading and easily strike up a conversation about the book! Kathleen and I will continue to look forward to visiting the Inn, but it won’t be quite the same.

  66. Sue Ammar

    I extend my deepest condolences to the Morrow family. Peters sudden passing is truly heartfelt and he will be missed by all.

  67. Pamela Corsi

    I am so sorry to hear this very sad news. Peter was a lovely man. We enjoyed spending some time with him the last time we were there. He will be greatly missed by many.

  68. Ashley Baer and Michael Kochman

    Sending my condolences to Eric, and the Morrow family and our Jamaica Inn family. I was just there for the mindfulness retreat a few weeks ago and spent time talking with Peter many times during this time. He shared with me on our last dinner about his plane and his love of flying. I learned so much from him in our short visit, and will cherish the books he gave me. I am so saddened by this news.

  69. Jeanne Stabile

    We had the pleasure of meeting your brother during our last stay. My husband thought he was just another guest and told me “ I just had the most interesting conversation!” If it is any comfort, he died doing what he loved. His memory will live on at the Jamaica Inn.

  70. Carolyn Zuccareno


  71. Frank Dalzell

    I’m so sorry to hear this sad news. When we first started coming to The Inn in the 1970s, either Peter or Erik was always there to greet us upon arrival. We would see one or the other of them several times a day, and they always showed a genuine caring for how we were enjoying our stay. We will miss his kindness.

  72. The Landsberg Family

    We extend our deepest sympathy to the Morrow and Jamaica Inn family. We are extremely shocked and saddened by this tragedy. We are grateful to have known Peter and to have had many morning conversations on the veranda with him. We will miss him very much. And he’s right about the in-room coffee makers.

  73. Pamela mcFeely

    Oh I just received the news. I really can’t believe it. Peter was a remarkable hotelier .
    He paid attention to every guest and every detail which made the Inn so special.
    He had a good sense of humor, well read, and truly loved The Jamaica Inn. He
    Will be sorely missed. Pam & Clif

    Eric and our Jamaica Inn family;
    James and I would like to extend our deepest and sincere sympathy with the passing of Peter.

  75. Shauna and David Grissett

    My husband and I are so sorry to hear of Peter’s death. Please accept our condolences for your loss. We were just at the Inn – – at the end of October – – so, this truly is a shock. We enjoyed many interesting conversations with Peter, not only in the mornings when he greeted us for breakfast but, in the evenings as well, before dinner. We so enjoyed his company and hospitality. Know that we are thinking of both the Morrow and Jamaica Inn families at this difficult time.

  76. Michelle and Rob Dowda

    Rob and I are so sorry to hear of Peter’s passing. We met him during our first trip many years ago and were lucky enough to see him almost every visit as we generally visited in October. Over the years we got to know Peter and enjoyed chatting with him on the beach or at coffee. He was such a lovely and interesting man. I was looking forward to seeing him upon our next trip. He had shared a book with us on staying in the moment and my husband and I have both practiced mindfulness based on our discussion and insight from Peter. He was a fabulous host! How often do you hear of an owner being so involved with guests and providing so much insight and interest. He was one of a kind. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

  77. Patricia Fife

    Dear Eric,
    We are so sorry to hear about your brother, Peter. How tragic. We send you our deepest sympathy. We will always remember him and his cordial and friendly ways. Because he was a pilot, mu husband, Bill, who was a past manager of Kennedy Airport as well as an airport planner and engineer, had many interesting-conversations with Peter. Because we are picky eaters and not fans of spicy Jamaican food, Peter always made sure that the chef could modify what was on the menu to accommodate our tastes. We will very much miss your brother.. We have been going to your beautiful facility for the last several years. It was always our Valentines Day trip. We are very disappointed that we cannot go this year as Pat was diagnosed with acute leukemia this past April. One of our last pictures before she got sick is of us sitting at the Inn having breakfast by the water. , After a stem cell transplant, she is on the road to recovery. We plan to be there for Valentines Day in 2021. Though,we will very much miss Peter’s presence .

  78. Sheila Landsberg

    Our deepest condolences to the Morrow family and staff at the Jamaica Inn. One of the things we truly looked forward to over the years of visiting this special place was not only the beautiful beach, the 11:00 am Planters Punch served to us wherever we we happened to be was after breakfast. That was when my husband and I knew we could sit down with Peter, catch up with him and discuss politics and the world in general. He made you feel welcomed, was truly happy we were returning guests but more than anything, he was truly present in the moment! We are so sorry he was taken away so soon and will greatly miss him at the Inn.

  79. Steve & Andrea Cross

    We are so sad to hear of Peters passing, we have been lucky enough too visit Jamaica Inn several times and to us both Peter and Eric are part of the very fabric of this wonderful place, always a friendly gentleman Peter will be sadly missed

    Our sincerest condolences to the Morrow family and everyone at Jamaica Inn.
    This is such a tragic loss to the family and entire Jamaica Inn community! May his legacy always live on. We truly enjoyed meeting Peter last May, and hearing about the many celebrities he has met over the years, including a newly elected Prime Minister of Canada! He seemed to have lived life to its fullest, and may all those who knew and loved him, always cherish the memories. R.I.P. Mr. Peter

  82. Terry Parrilli

    We are deeply saddened to hear of the loss of Peter. My husband and I always looked forward to spending time with him at the Inn. They would talk politics and trade books while we would discuss art, the island , the Inn and hospitality. I remember once he stayed in the room next to ours, #19, and ordered a television to his room. What a rascal. No matter how late he stayed up the night before, when I would come up to the grand hall to grab an early morning coffee, Peter would be sitting in a dress Polo shirt and shorts and be reading the paper at a table just outside the library. Every single morning without fail. The last time we were there, while talking on the beach, he famously said about the Inn, “Well, civilized people need someplace to stay.” Classic Peter. The Jamaica Inn has lost its biggest fan. We mourn with the entire Jamaica Inn family on this tragic news. Godspeed Peter.

  83. Angela Hancock

    A very special place and a very special man.Condolences to all the family.

    We were deeply shocked to hear of Peter Morrow’s tragic accident, especially as we were chatting to him on the terrace just a few weeks ago. We know he will be sorely missed by all who knew him as it is evident he touched the lives of many. Our condolences to you all.

  85. Zita Kennedy

    We are so sorry to hear of peters passing .. we stayed our first time just in October with our eldest son. Peter was there at the time and we really enjoyed meeting him and agreed his presence and the way he came over introduced himself(with that lovely smile) and said ‘bare feet welcome ‘ ! made us feel very at home ! He was such a lovely man .. we will miss him next time we come to Jamaica inn . RIP Peter Morrow.

  86. Kweku and Theodora

    It was a pleasure and an honor and a memorable moment in my many Jamaican travels of recent years to have met Peter Morrow. His legacy and love for Jamaica Inn will go on I’m sure, but my deep sympathies go out to all the Jamaica Inn and especially to Eric Morrow in this moment.


    It is with great sadness that I received this news of Peter’s passing.
    How many mornings did I sit on the terrace with him getting his permission to film in some location on the property that had not been discussed previously.
    His concern was always the comfort of the guests, but he also had the ability to recognize the big picture associated with my request…
    I can see him sitting there right now, and will miss him
    May his spirit soar!!


    Oh Eric,
    I can’t imagine what it will be like to not seeing Peter sitting in his chair on the terrace , keeping an eye on everything.
    It is with great sadness and a deep nostalgia that I receive this news,
    Condolences to the entire Morrow family.May his spirit soar!

  92. Tom and Mercer Jones

    As I sit here reading this my eyes were drawn to the wonderful box Peter handed us when we left after the Diamond Anniversary. He was attentive to guests and remembered names which I believe are the best traits of any hospitality industry manager. RIP Peter and condolences to all the family members including the Jamaica Inn extended family.

  93. Nina Roberts

    What a terrible shock. Devastating news. Peter was a lovely man and I enjoyed chatting with him just a few weeks ago while at Jamaica Inn with my family. He had a lovely sense of humour and one of his comments that cracked me up, “ Still work in’ on it”. I send my sincere condolences to Eric and the Morrow family and to the Jamaica Inn family. We will miss him.

  96. Andrea Billings

    I’m so sorry to hear of this…the sudden nature of this loss is devastating. We came to the Jamaica Inn shortly after experiencing a sudden loss as well-the untimely death of my brother. Our experience at the Inn was incredibly healing. Peter made you feel not like you were vacationing, but that you were visiting an old family friend. His generous smile and compassionate nature made us feel right at home. We pray your many memories will bring you comfort during this difficult time and in the days ahead. Thank you for honoring Peter’s memory with such a touching tribute.

  97. Dave & Dottie Longo

    Please accept our sincere condolences on the untimely passing of your brother, family member and caring employer. We have pleasant memories of conversations with Peter during our stays at the Inn and wish you all the best going forward. He will certainly be missed.

    Our thoughts and prayers to the Morrow family and the Jamaica Inn family. Please know that we join you in mourning this terrible loss and are too, very grateful to be a part of Peter’s wonderful legacy. May he be at peace throughout eternity.

  99. Patty Cali Ronen

    The news of Peter’s passing is deeply shocking and so very sad. We just had the pleasure of enjoying our third visit to the Jamaica Inn the week of Oct 17-24th, 2019. During our stay I had several chats with Peter. He took me into the dining room and shared the historical photos of the Inn on this visit. I can’t imagine being there and not seeing his stack of books by the chair he loved most. I know that he will be deeply missed by his family both in California and always at the Inn. It is my prayer that he arrived in heaven to the loving and comforting sounds of “Welcome Home”. Deepest condolences to the entire Jamaica Inn family.

  104. Ian and Vernadine Quan-Soon

    My wife and I are deeply shocked, and saddened to hear of Peter’s sudden passing. On October 22nd, 2019, our last day at the Inn, Peter personally bade my wife and I goodbye with a gift of a beautiful box and a fond “looking forward to seeing you soon”. During our stay, we spent quality time with Peter talking about politics, his love for flying, his aversion for sport that involve balls, and his love for the Inn, it’s staff and the many friends he made who visited each year. Peter even shared a few funny stories about managing the Inn and a funny video “Crime after Crime”, based on the song “Time after Time” by Cyndi Lauper, which he probably shared with many others as it gave him much pleasure. We departed the Inn after a much enjoyable stay made even more so by being in the company and care of Peter and his wonderful staff. Peter asked how we enjoyed our stay. I responded that we felt as though we were personally invited to stay at the private home of a gracious host. To which Peter responded “that’s the idea”. We will sorely miss him.
    We wish to extend our condolences to Peter’s family and the Jamaica Inn staff.
    May he rest in peace.

  105. David & Catherine Alexander

    On our first visit to Jamaica Inn 3 years ago, we had reserved Cottage 7. Peter had been staying in cottage 7 prior to our arrival, and we felt bad that we were “kicking the owner out of his favorite suite!” Just as Eric stated, Peter would always be sitting in the same seat in the morning greeting and chatting with guests, including me. My wife and I could tell he loved being there and his genuineness and sincerity shined through. Peter learned that we were from Michigan, and he told us about his visits to Mackinaw Island. He would fly his own plane to Mackinaw Island, and we learned about his passion of flying. When he moved out of Cottage 7 upon our arrival, Peter transferred to the White Suite. One day he proudly gave us a tour of the White Suite and described the history and famous guests that stayed in that suite.
    Peter was one of the reasons that we have been return guests to your amazing property. We express our deepest condolences to Eric, the Morrow family and the entire Jamaica Inn family. We know you have all been shaken by this sudden and tragic news. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all during this difficult time!

  106. Ned Brown

    I had the pleasure of speaking with Peter a few weeks ago. As usual, it was mostly about US politics. I will miss my friend. An important point omitted about Peter’s Perch on the JI terrace is that it was the smoker friendly area. Coffee, my cigar, and good conversation with Peter and his fellow smoking comrades. I will miss that routine. RIP.

  107. Diane March

    What a treat it was to meet Peter during our visit to the Jamaica Inn! He was truly a perfect host! He showed us hospitality, friendship, and shared meaningful conversation. He sent me home with a fantastic book on mindfulness. He made us feel at home and I believe he made The Jamaica Inn a very special place to be associated with. Our prayers are with the family, staff and friends of Peter’s. Thank you for sharing this news with us. It makes us feel like we did when we were with Peter… part of the Jamaica Inn family!

  108. Nadia + Jim Vesey

    Deepest sympathies to his brother, family, and staff. It’s sad news to read about his passing. I believe my husband and I had a peak encounter with him at the Inn about 2 years ago. May his excellent memory and legacy live on.

  109. Robert & Linda heath

    We’ve been guests at Jamaica Inn for over 30 years and enjoyed both Peter and Eric’s unique hospitality. When they say “ welcome home” they really mean it. I can’t think of any hotel that we have stayed in where either or both owners would always greet you at dinner every night. I particularly enjoyed peters rye sense of humor.
    He will be sorely missed but his legacy like his fathers will live on.
    Our deep condolences to Eric, Eric’s family and of course the entire staff family at the eponymous Jamaica Inn

    1. Marsha and Ed Jones

      To Eric, his family and all of the Jamaica inn family,
      Our hearts can not express the feeling of loss for a spirit whose life has touched so many souls. I first met Peter when I came to the inn with my daughter in 1993.
      He was full of life and joy and his charming ways.
      I have returned many times since then, again with our daughter, and my husband. You, Peter and the staff have truly made it feel the inn is a home. We have enjoyed so many wonderful conversations through the years with Peter about life, being a teacher of joy and mindfulness, which he truly was.
      The last time we saw him he was so thrilled to learn he was going to get a new plane, and how he and the universe helped him to create it. He was so happy.
      It is sad and hard to comprehend we won’t see him on our next visit. But we will know his spirit is there in his chair, watching over the inn.
      We send our thoughts and love to you all.
      Marsha and Ed Jones

  110. Peter Payne

    Very sad news indeed. My heartfelt condolences to the Morrow family and all at Jamaica Inn. He will be sorely missed.

  111. Cleeve & Valerie Amos

    How sad. I met Peter when we stayed at Jamaica Inn in 2017 and liked him instantly. We had long conversations about mindfulness during our stay and I would sometimes join him on his morning walk. We are returning to Jamaica Inn at the end of November and I was looking forward to continuing our discussions, he was a great mentor. Peter has gone but his memories live on. Thank you Peter for your kindness and understanding. I will miss you.

  112. Daniel and Kirsten Gapastione

    Peter, will always be sitting in that chair.

  113. Marilyn Driver

    To Eric and the entire Jamaica Inn family,
    Peter was a dear and generous friend, sharing his many passions with so many friends. I knew him personally for over thirty years and used to fly with him n Florida. He was the most careful of pilots, and I always admired his politeness when speaking with the control towers and ground staff – a great example of many aspects of life. So many people knew him at the airfields, His presence and friendship will be missed and the solace is to know that he died doing what he loved most.

  114. Iris and Dees Coxe

    We are so sorry to hear about Peter. We first met Peter in the early 80’s on one of our earliest visits to the Inn and have always enjoyed talking with him on our yearly visits when he was in residence.

    We’re so sorry for your loss. Mike and I were fortunate to have met Peter on several occasions at the Inn, and we were able to spend time with him just a few weeks ago in mid-October. We loved seeing him every morning before breakfast to discuss his latest book selections, the island, politics and his love of this beautiful world. I’m so glad we had a chance to spend time with him on our last day of vacation, sitting out on the deck as the rain came down in the afternoon. He will be missed.

  121. Sharon and John Duffy

    To Eric, Belinda, their daughters and to the entire Jamaica Inn Family,
    We are profoundly saddened to hear of Peter’s untimely passing. We enjoyed those early morning talks which almost always came around to discussing mindfulness and how to achieve it. He recommended several books which we then read and discussed. Peter told us several years ago that he expected to live another 1,000 days. And he does but in a different form now. We will always “see” him sitting in 1st chair on the Veranda. We think Peter would have believed this verse and hope you can find comfort in your wonderful memories. “Life is Eternal. Love is Immortal. Death is only a Horizon. And the Horizon is merely the limit of our sight.” With deepest sympathy, Sharon and John Duffy

  122. Rosa & Plinio Franzini

    what to say ….. when we were at the jamaica inn we always see him often sitting on the terrace and he always greeted us. A very reassuring presence.
    We are very sorry and we leave our condolences to the families

    My heart goes out to both the Morrow and Jamaica Inn families. Its always difficult to loose a loved one but when its unexpected it’s doubly hard.

    It is with great sorrow that I learn about the passing of Peter Morrow. I first met him in the 1980’s at the Jamaica Inn. He was the ultimate host in the tradition of the Jamaica Inn — caring, cheerful, a good sense of humor, a great listener, and he gave the appearance that managing a hotel was “effortless” , but you knew it wasn’t. He cared about the staff, the guests and the quality of service. I will remember him always and will miss him.

    My heart goes out to the entire team at Jamaica Inn. I recently attended a Mindfullness and Meditation Retreat at Jamaica Inn. Peter was instrumental in all of the sessions and in parting he gave us two books to help us on our own journey.
    His spirit and thought fullness will be dearly missed.
    My thoughts are with you all.

    This is heartbreaking news as we met Peter for the first time the week prior to his death. We were looking forward to seeing him again in the spring. We talked about flying for an hour. Our condolences to all who loved him.
