We are sad to announce that Central Mississippi & Atlanta have lost a great soul Oscar Pope.
Oscar Pope from Terry went to Ole Miss and has lived in Atlanta working for Turner Sports for a while now. we are not sure on the details of his death yet.
Speaking on Twitter Matt Wickline described Oscar as a man who cared about everyone. He was the absolute best of us & I should have told him that more.
“Oscar Pope loved @serenawilliams, the 96 Olympics & @ATLUTD. But EVERYBODY loved Oscar, & he cared about everyone. He was the absolute best of us & I should have told him that more. Don’t wait to tell people how amazing they are or how much they mean to you. Do it now! Luv U OP”
Actually, nothing was disclosed about the cause of his death.
Oscar Pope (BA 10) has always wanted to create meaningful content that both defines culture and connects people.
“I don’t know where that his passion comes from,” he said. “But I know I have a responsibility to create responsibly.”
He first developed an interest in art during his middle school years, a time when he found himself always creating. He took his first official art class in the seventh grade, and in the eighth grade, he saved enough money to buy an actual design suite in order to begin to teach himself graphic design.
After graduation, Pope accepted a position as an advertising coordinator at a sports publishing firm in Atlanta. From there he went on to join the Atlanta-based startup Scoutmob as an advertising executive for four years before landing at Creative Loafing Atlanta as a multimedia marketing specialist.
However, he made the biggest leap of his professional career when he joined Turner Broadcasting as the content marketing coordinator of the NBA on TNT and NBA TV.
In his role at Turner Sports, Pope handles consumer-facing creative messaging and branding for both networks in addition to NBA.com. Pope said his experience in graphic design is what set him apart.
Many of Oscar’s friends and fans have started pouring out their condolences on social media:
