In Memoriam, Jack T. Ribble, Jr., Esquire (1962 – 2017)

It is with great sadness that Kent/McBride, P. C. says farewell to esteemed shareholder, Jack T. Ribble who passed away on September 12, 2017.

Jack was widely respected in the Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation Community. He represented employers and insurers for over 25 years. He was an active member of the Delaware County Bar Association, Pennsylvania Defense Institute and Defense Research Institute. Jack frequently presented seminars on issues impacting employers and insurers.

Jack volunteered with his local Little League Baseball Program and St. John Chrysostom School. He enjoyed golf, baseball, gardening and surf fishing. Jack was the beloved husband of Christine Ribble and loving father of Grace and Jack.

We lost a great friend, mentor and long-time partner whose reputation in the workers' compensation legal community was beyond reproach. He practiced law as he carried himself – as a true gentleman. Jack always worked aggressively in representing the interests of his clients, all the while keeping us grounded with his levity. The resonance of his laughter will remain with us forever.
