It is with great sadness that we share the news that John Phillips passed away on Friday, May 15, 2020. John received his BS and MPA from The University of Texas at Austin, and his PhD from The University of Iowa. He spent his entire career as a faculty member at the University of Connecticut, from 1999 until his early retirement in 2016.

John was a gifted researcher, teacher, and mentor. He was a recipient of the American Taxation Association/PricewaterhouseCoopers Outstanding Dissertation Award, the American Taxation Association (ATA)/Deloitte Innovation in Teaching Award, and served as the editor of The Journal of American Taxation Association. In 2015, he received the ATA’s Ray Sommerfeld Outstanding Tax Educator Award and directed the funds to help establish an endowment for the accounting PhD program at UConn. 

Please hold Amy Dunbar, and the rest of John’s family, in your thoughts.
