Jack died Apr. 29, 2002, after a brief illness, in his hometown, Richmond, Va. Jack came to Princeton from St. Christopher's School in Richmond. At Princeton he majored in history, played freshman baseball, and was a member of Cap and Gown, the NROTC, and Whig-Clio. His senior year roommates were Andy Walker, Wick Dufford, and David Bramlette '62 — who gave a fitting tribute at Jack's funeral.

Following four years as a Navy officer, Jack earned an MBA at UVA, and then returned to Richmond, where he entered the securities industry and ultimately cofounded the investment management firm Thompson, Siegel and Walmsley. As a leader of the Richmond community, Jack served on numerous corporate, charitable, and civic boards, including the Christian Children's Fund and that of his alma mater, St. Christopher's.

An avid runner and hunter, Jack also spent much of his free time restoring historic properties in the US and England, traveling, or hosting friends and family at Chericoke Farm in King William, Va.

He is survived by his childhood sweetheart and wife of 39 years, Alice Horsley Siegel; his mother and brother; three children, John '91, Carter, and Eliza; and a grandson. Jack was truly a Virginia gentleman.
