John had courage and insight few others do, especially today, yet was always warm and welcoming. A rare combination. A rare man. He will be missed. I pray for the repose of his soul and the consolation of the McAdams family.

I was a student of John's in the early 1980's. His Poli Sci course was my favorite course at Marquette even though I majored in business. I just learned of his death as I have a relative who passed away and also at Krause. I was very supportive and proud of John's challenge to the university and win at the Wisconsin State Supreme Court. The family should know he was an inspiration to his students and to principled people everywhere as he taught and then fought for constitutional principle espoused in the Federalist Papers. "Publius" would be proud. Glenn Kleczka & Family Scottsdale and Chicago
