Jack Rupert MacDONALD
May 5, 1915 – September 13, 2013 Jack was born in Prince Rupert, BC, but his family moved to Seattle when he was three. He attended Broadway High School, the University of Washington and the UW Law School. After a three year Army stint in the South Pacific, he worked for 30 years as an attorney for the Veterans Administration in Seattle. In 1971, Jack married Mary Katherine Moore who brightened his life with joy and adventure. They lived in Magnolia, then at Horizon House, and traveled extensively throughout the world until Mary’s death in 1999.
Self-admittedly eccentric, he was a private man who lived frugally, clipping coupons and seeking bargains. Yet he was an able steward of his family trust. His hobby was the stock market, and he delighted in watching his trust increase in value to benefit local charities. A true philanthropist, Jack supported hundreds of causes with small donations, but was proudest to be a major contributor to Children’s Hospital and Medical Center and the University of Washington Law School.
Jack is survived by his step-children, Regen Dennis (Bruce); and Steven Moore (Cherie), their children Meghann Moore Rossi and Heather Blacketer, and one step-great-grandchild, Sofia Rossi. At Jack’s request, there will be no memorial service; he will be interred in his family plot in Ontario, Canada.
