Rites set for Tulsa attorney

published in the Tulsa World, Sunday, September 27, 2009

Jon B. Wallis, a Tulsa attorney who practiced law as a sole proprietor for 36 years, died Thursday. He was 64.

Wallis was born Feb. 8, 1945, in Dallas. His family moved to Tulsa when he was a child, and he graduated from Nathan Hale High School and Northeastern State University.

Wallis worked days as a clerk at the courthouse while he attended the University of Tulsa School of Law at night. He graduated from TU in 1973 and passed the bar exam the same year.  From then on, he was his own boss, his family said.  "He never worked for anybody," said his wife, Elizabeth Wallis.

"I think it was extremely scary," said his son Jason Wallis. "Once you throw out a shingle, you'd better get some clients if you want to eat next month."
Wallis took any case that came his way, from divorces to criminal cases. But once he was established, Wallis began focusing on the cases he loved most: personal injury cases and medical malpractice lawsuits against doctors, insurance companies and local hospitals. He also liked to take on oil and gas cases.

Wallis loved to be in the courtroom and thrived on the "intellectual matching of wits against adversaries," his son said.

In the late 1970s, he was certified to appear before the U.S. Supreme Court, as well as the Oklahoma Supreme Court.

Wallis continued to work even after he began treatment for pancreatic cancer.  He was an avid outdoorsman and hunter, a 32nd-degree Mason and a Shriner.

Wallis is survived by his wife, Elizabeth; two sons, Jason Wallis of Houston and Justin Wallis of Tulsa; a daughter, Jill Wallis of Tulsa; and two granddaughters.

 


Timothy L. Willey, 62, passed away Monday, February 26, 2007 in Tulsa, OK. Tim was born December 4, 1944 in Tulsa, OK to H. Lynn and Bernita (Bliss) Willey.

He was an office supply salesman and a member of University United Methodist Church. He was preceded in death by: his parents, H. Lynn and Bernita Willey and brother, Dennis Willey. He is survived by: his son, grandson, 2 stepchildren, a brother and two sisters and well as several nieces and nephews.
