HENRY, "Jack" John Willis June 30, 1935
Stark City, MO
Apr. 13, 2007
Cox South Hosp.,
Springfield,
Greene Co., MO
Research Note: He was the son of B. A. and Irma C. (Rohn) Henry. He grew up in that area, graduating form Midway High School in 1953. He left the family farm to attend Springfield College of Commerce, also taking classes from Draughan's Business College. After graduating from business school, Jack discovered that railroad executives had male secretaries because of travel requirements. He went to work for the Frisco Railroad as a private secretary. In 1958 Jack began working for Marathon Oil in Chickasaw, Oklahoma, as a production accountant. In November 1963, on the day President Kennedy was buried, he moved back to Monett to work with John Jarvis at Jarvis Tax Service, planning to work for Mr. Jarvis during tax season and farm the remainder of the year. Mr. Jarvis passed away in December of that year and Jack continued to run the business for Mrs. Jarvis for five years. In 1968 Jack went to work for G and R Machine Works in Purdy as the controller. In 1974 he became operations manager at Gillioz Bank in Monett. This was at the time when banks were being automated and software packages did exist, but none of them were great. Jack had convinced management of the bank to buy a computer and software, which did not work very well. He has always jokingly said he knew he either had to confess to the board that he had made a dreadful mistake with that software or write something on his own. He quickly learned the RPG cycle and with a vast understanding of numbers and banking he began writing a package for the bank. It worked, the bank was happy, and Jack retained the license to the software package. The Gillioz Bank sold to United Missouri Bank and Jack decided that it was time for him to go. He had befriended Jerry Hall, the only other computer guru in town and together they started a business plan on paper napkins as they traveled back and forth to Springfield where they were taking classes, and Jack Henry and Associates grew out of that. Henry and Hall worked extremely hard and could not have been as successful as they were, one without the other. They remained very close friends and partners today. Jack Henry and Associates was incorporated in 1977 and the rest is history. They bought a plane, Jack became a pilot, having flown for G and R. and enhanced and developed the software, sold it and installed it for a while. They quit several times over coffee after a long night, but always bounced back, determined to make it work. It did work, and along with the help of several young people who worked extremely hard, it grew into a very successful company. The company is a $2.2 billion dollar, publicly traded, operation today, with approximately 3,500 employees nationwide. Jack was semi-retired at his death, remaining as executive vice president and vice chairman of the board. He was very happy to leave the day-to-day operations of the company to the younger generation, as he said. He and Jerry both remained involved from a distance. Jack is survived by his wife, Brenda, and cherished puppy "Keeks" of the home. A private funeral service is being held for the immediate family. A memorial service was held on Saturday, April 21, at the Jack Henry and Associates Campus, in building J7, at 11 a.m. Monett Times
