Mrs. Jeffus is the former Miss El-

Jeffus of Deport, went to, Wichita
Falls Sunday afternoon and Mrs.
Jeffus’ parents, Mr. and Mrs. A. J
Newby, former Wichitans, arrived
Sunday night from their home at
Oil Center, N. M.
Other survivors include his son
by a former marriage, Jack Jeffus
Jr., and a brother, Hugh Jeffus of
Houston. The son, who is spending
the summer in New York City, had
gone to Connecticut for the week
end and was not located until Sun-
day night. He arrived by plane in
time for the funeral.
Jeffus, who had risen to a vice
presidency in the City National
Bank, was considered one of the
most brilliant young bankers in the
J. T. Harrell, president of the in-
stitution, in a brief statement paid
tribute to him as follows:
“Jack Jeffus was one of the most
brilliant young men I ever have
been associated with. He had a
great future in his chosen field. He
unquestionably would have gone to
the top. He was endowed with an
analytical mind and sound judg-
ment. He could grasp a problem
and solve it promptly, and his so-
lution proved his judgment. Be-
yond that ability he had an unusu-
ally warm and congenial person-
ality. Jack will be greatly missed.”
Born at Deport, Aug. 27, 1905,
Jeffus attended elementary schools
here and graduated from high
school at Paris. He later studied
at Trinity University in Waxaha-
chie and the University of Arkan-
sas, and did graduate work at Rut-
Entering the Spur State Bank of
Spur, Texas, Dec. 1, 1924, Jeffus left
there to go to the Wichita Falls
bank as a bookkeeper March 18,
1925. He was made assistant cash-
ier in 1932 and the following year
was advanced to the post of cashier
and became a director of the bank.
He was elected a vice president
Jan. 9, 1940.
Jeffus had been active as an of-
ficer and a member of the Kiwanis
Club and the Wichita Falls Junior
Chamber of Commerce. He also
was a member of the Wichita Falls
Chuch Wagon Gang. Recent civic
activities included work as county
