A great man, a great friend and a great leader has left his worldly home to experience the grandness of Heaven’s real estate! Not only did Mr. Hausam serve his Country, clients, family and friends, but he stood beside and behind his agents, whether they be right or wrong in every situation. You were loved by many and will be forever missed!

He was a Legend. A beautiful human being and kind to my family when we first arrived in Tulsa in 1977. My mother bought a lovely home from his “tour of homes” concept.

I first met Uncle John in 1951 when he came back from Korea and stayed at his parents house at 1544 East 10th. John was a silver star recipient and his father, Louis, kept his write up and picture over his dresser every day till the day he passed. My father was in Toole Greenland, with SAC, so my brother, mother, and I stayed with Louis and Marie for a year. I just loved him right away and still do. He was my mentor, Uncle and friend for nearly 70 years and I am so blessed to have known him. He was good to his family and the the city of Tulsa which he watched grow from the time he arrived in Tulsa in 1947 as a teenager. He loved Tulsa and made every effort to contribute as much of himself to the city and it's people as he possibly could. He was not a complainer. When his recent car accident left him with broken bones and a great deal of pain he apologized for not being able to go to lunch with me while in town last Christmas. I will miss him like I would miss my own father. My heart hurts but am so blessed to have known him. Sherrie Norris

John was a Pioneer in the Real Estate business. He was among the first to build a large residential sales force in the city. He was always leading edge, in building his company.
He caused a lot of people to be successful as Realtors over his 40+ years as a active leader in Real Estate.
He was a fun, happy guy who was effervescent and a born leader.
He and I became good friends thru business shorty after he started his Company and I was just fresh starting my business.
Thru the years, we were just as when we started, and could pickup where we left off.
I had Great Respect for John and always considered him to be one of my best, Business friends, and confidante thru the many years we have known each other.
I am deeply saddened, learning of his passing. He was someone I always felt was forever young. He was a Good Man!

Although I have not been in contact with him, for sometime, I will deeply miss him knowing he is no longer around.

My deepest condolences go out to his family, and his son John.

Rest In Peace my friend.
