Beloved classmate and friend John Wallace died of a heart attack Jan. 4, 2022, at his temporary work home in Chicago. An Atlanta native, he graduated with honors from the Westminster Schools. At Princeton, John was in Forbes, joined SAE and Cottage Club, and majored in English. He was a proud member of the Cuyler crew junior year.

Following graduation, John worked for Robinson-Humphrey in Atlanta, then attended Harvard Business School. During his distinguished career, John was a managing director and partner at Boston Consulting Group. He worked at Georgia-Pacific, consulted with and Kraft Foods, and later became acting CEO of OneTouchPoint. In 2016, John became managing director of ICV Partners, ultimately serving as president and CEO of SG360° in Chicago in 2019.

John reconnected and shared special time with classmates on the golf course just prior to his passing. A Tiger through and through, he was a loyal friend, kind person, and true gentleman. He was a man of both pride and humility, and he will be greatly missed.

The class extends heartfelt condolences to John’s father, John A. Wallace ’60; his siblings Laura and Michael; and his daughters Kate and Claire. RIP, Shark.
