He received his undergraduate degree in business administration from the University of Kansas and his MBA and law degrees from the University of Texas at Austin.

As a self-employed businessman, Chris had previously been employed at Hill's Pet Nutrition, Americans for Prosperity, and was founder and partner in The BleuJacket restaurant.

He was active in the Lawrence community as the golf coach at Bishop Seabury Academy and enjoyed golfing with his family and friends.

He will be dearly missed, and we raise our glass to honor Chris and the contributions he has made to our Chapter and community. Alumni News Lee R.
