FONTAINE--John C. Hughes Hubbard & Reed mourns the passing of its esteemed former Managing Partner, John Clovis ("Jack") Fontaine. Jack's intellect and judgment made him an extraordinarily gifted lawyer and we are honored to have called him our partner. During his varied and productive career, he served in numerous notable positions including as a President of Knight-Ridder, Inc. and Chairman of the National Gallery of Art, the Samuel H. Kress Foundation, Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival and the Florida Philharmonic, and a Director of numerous corporate Boards. Jack remained a friend and trusted advisor until the end. We are grateful for the time we had with him and send our deepest condolences to his family.
