Please share a memory of John to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

John “Jack” Sutherland, (68), of Rye, New York, passed away suddenly on January 23, 2023. Jack enjoyed a decades-long career in private wealth management, most recently as an Executive Vice President with Morgan Stanley in Manhattan, NY. Following graduation from Mt. Lebanon High School in Mt. Lebanon, PA, Jack received a BSE degree in Biomedical Engineering and an MBA degree from Duke University in Durham, NC, where he was a varsity track and rugby player and a member of the Delta Tau Delta fraternity. He is survived by his children, Matthew (fiancée Kaleigh) and Kelly, his siblings Bill (Kate) Sutherland, Holly (Bob) Kimmitt, Laurel (Dick) Wimer, Ashley (Bill) Rogers, Mac (Mary) Sutherland, and Heather (Tom) Finke, his devoted partner, Jamey Murphy, of Darien, CT, and dozens of nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his parents, Nancy McDonald Sutherland and William Wallace Sutherland, Jr. A remarkable athlete, Jack was a nationally ranked platform tennis player who also enjoyed golf, bird hunting, scuba diving, snorkeling, kayaking, fishing, and biking. A lover of the outdoors, Jack's knowledge of the winds, tides, constellations, space travel, gardening, and paleontology was unmatched. Jack was incredibly kind and generous with everything he had, especially his time and love, which he shared freely with family and friends. He will be remembered for his ready smile, brilliance and sharp intellect, legendary storytelling abilities, and adventurous spirit. A memorial service will be held at 12:30 p.m. on February 11, 2023, at the Reformed Church of Bronxville in Bronxville, NY. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the NYAC Athlete’s Fund.
