Board Vice Chair Dies Suddenly
The Webster Community was saddened earlier this week when it learned that Jack Galmiche III, president and chief executive officer on the Nine Network of Public Media and vice chair of the Board of Trustees for Webster University, died suddenly at age 71.
Galmiche served tirelessly on the University’s board for five years and supported a number of programs and initiatives within the University community, including the School of Communications and the annual Diversity and Inclusion Conference.
The visitation and mass will be held on Tuesday, April 23, at St. Francis Xavier College Church located at 3628 Lindell Blvd., St. Louis, Mo. 63108. Visitation is from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m., and the funeral mass will begin at 4 p.m. The mass will be followed by a New Orleans-style parade back to NINE Network (within walking distance) to celebrate Jack’s life.
