CHARLOTTE, N.C. -

Jon Richardson, the oldest son of Carolina Panthers owner Jerry Richardson, has died at age 53.

The team issued a statement Tuesday announcing the death. While a cause of death wasn't announced, Jon Richardson had battled cancer while working for his father.

The younger Richardson had served as president of stadium operations from the team's beginning in 1995 until his resignation in 2009, part of a leadership change which included the resignation of his brother, Marc Richardson, as team president.

Jon Richardson was a two-year starter and three-year letterman at North Carolina. He led the Tar Heels in receptions in 1981. He had a tryout in 1982 with the Baltimore Colts, for whom his father played in the 1950s.

Funeral arrangements haven't been announced.
