Jack WalshWith heavy hearts, we regretfully announce the passing of John T. “Jack” Walsh, 57, on April 23, 2018 after a long and valiant battle with cancer.

A titan of the St. Louis legal scene, Jack was a force of nature in the courtroom. He brought many a legal adversary to its knees; prevailing on behalf of the businesses he represented for more than 30 years. A veteran of such firms as Lathrop & Gage, Gallop Johnson & Neuman and Coburn Croft & Putzell, Jack was counted as peer, colleague, antagonist or friend of just about every lawyer in Missouri and beyond. 

“Jack Walsh was a character larger than life,” said Amundsen Davis partner James Sanders. “Not only was he an outstanding attorney, he was also an exceptional mentor and a loving and supportive husband, father and friend. He will be missed.”

Jack’s greatest achievement was the family he built with his wife Robin. A proud and loving father of sons Christopher and Daniel, Jack was not shy about bragging to anyone and everyone he met about his wonderful boys.

A class of 1979 alumnus of St. Louis University High school, Jack maintained a rigorous support and cheering schedule on the sidelines of the water polo pool where he watched his beloved sons excel as Jungle Cats.

Jack lived life with a smile on his face; he always had the time to teach, to encourage, to guide and to lead those around him. We mourn his untimely passing, but celebrate his full and vibrant life; appreciating the time we had.
