In Memoriam: John M. “Jack” MacLellan (MA63, BBA66) J
ack MacLellan told the “Eastern Echo” in 1966 that being president of the Men’s Union kept him busy. No doubt he said this with great satisfaction, as MacLellan thrived on the social connections and activities that became the fabric of his life. A member of Kappa Phi Alpha fraternity and numerous campus committees, MacLellan helped provide a collective voice for EMU’s male students. He enjoyed a long, successful career as
a stockbroker and continued to keep as busy as he had been at EMU, undertaking activities ranging from sports (scuba diving, tennis, fishing) to traveling with the Nomads Travel Club. He was active with the National Rifle Association, the National Corvette Owners’ Association, and the Boy Scouts of America—especially the Soap Box Derby. MacLellan died on Feb. 6, 2010, not
long after celebrating his 40th wedding anniversary with Susan Pape MacLellan (MA69).
