Battle Ground attorney who donated her time dies at 63

first_imgJill Kurtz, an attorney known for being a sleeves-rolled-up leader in many community clubs in north Clark County, died of a pulmonary embolism Sunday at her home in Battle Ground. She was 63.Kurtz is survived by her husband David, three children and two grandchildren.A full-time probate attorney and serial volunteer, Kurtz is remembered by friends and family for mixing persistence with patience. She was a partner at her family’s law firm, an avid gardener, an equestrian and a member of numerous community organizations.Yet she made time for both clients and coworkers — who were often her family, too.“Clients felt they could just walk in and see her. She would make time,” said son David Kurtz, who practices probate law at the firm alongside his two uncles, brother and cousin. “She was extremely generous with her time to the point I felt she was overextending herself. But she just enjoyed it. It was never something she felt was a burden.”For Kurtz, family and law seemed to go hand in hand.After graduating from Gonzaga University School of Law in 1981, she began practicing law with her father, Earl Jackson Sr. After his death four years later, she and her two brothers founded the firm Jackson, Jackson & Kurtz, with a bailiwick in estate planning and real estate law.By then she had married a lawyer, too, and had given birth two sons who would join the family firm years later.“After school, we’d hang out at the firm and wait until she was done to take us home,” said David Kurtz. “We did spend quite a bit of time in the conference room, now that I think of it. I think it was kind of destined we were going to be attorneys.”last_img read more
