It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Joseph (Jerry) McDonnell, who joined Gallagher Sharp as a Partner in 2018. Jerry earned national acclaim as a defense lawyer for railroad companies in all aspects of railroad law. A frequent lecturer on railroad and transportation issues, Jerry also served on the faculty of the Association of American Railroads Claim School. Jerry will be greatly missed by his colleagues at Gallagher Sharp, who both admired his tremendous skills as a lawyer and appreciated his kind and generous spirit. Our condolences and prayers go out to his family.
