    WordPress.org sites don’t necessarily have “ownership” like WordPress.com sites. They have Administrators of course, but there’s no one specific owner. Do you perhaps instead mean that happened when you connected Jetpack to the site?

    Is so, simply disconnect Jetpack from WordPress.com at Jetpack > Dashboard > Site Connection > Manage Site Connection in your site’s Dashboard, then connect again when prompted to the desired WordPress.com account. All of Jetpack’s data is stored in WordPress.com’s system relative to the site’s URL, so it’s perfectly safe to reconnect with a different WordPress.com account.

    If you mean you changed ownership on the WordPress.com site, follow this guide: https://en.support.wordpress.com/transferring-a-site-to-another-wordpress-com-account/

    To clear up any confusion, WordPress.com and WordPress.org are two different entities: https://codex.wordpress.org/WordPress_vs_WordPress.com

    WordPress.com has complete documentation and support contacts at https://support.wordpress.com/
