We are deeply saddened by the unexpected passing of our friend and colleague, John G. “Jay” White III.

The managing shareholder of our West Palm Beach office, Jay was an accomplished trial lawyer, with a reputation for the highest ethics and effective advocacy. He came to GrayRobinson in 2017 with a strong practice focusing on commercial and complex business litigation, personal injury, wrongful death, professional malpractice litigation, class actions, and officer and director representation.

Jay served as president of The Florida Bar, on the Board of Governors for 10 years, and in every elected position of the Palm Beach County Bar Association. He also served on the Judicial Qualifications Commission, chaired the Judicial Nominating Commission in Palm Beach for multiple terms, and was a member of the American Board of Trial Advocates. Jay was also active in the ABA House of Delegates; The Florida Bar of Examiners Fitness and Character Commission; the National Conference of Bar Presidents; the Southern Conference of Bar Presidents; and the Florida Bar Foundation Board; as well as numerous local, state, and federal commissions and bar committees.

Jay was born in Pensacola, over 100 years after his great-grandfather settled there. He grew up loving Florida, the coast, surfing and fishing, and was dedicated to these same pursuits throughout his life.
