A true mentor and counselor during my college years, and beyond. I, as our many others, indebted to Brother John for his service to Phi Kappa Psi. Rest in peace and in the brotherhood. Jay Donohue, KS Alpha 1978, District V Archon 1979-81

I had the privilege of working with John at my first job out of college. It was at a Broker/Dealer securities underwriter. He was a true genius in all details of securities. I was one of many that hounded him with questions each day, he always had the time to give me great answers. He was universally the most respected person in our office. A nicer guy you might never meet!
