John Michael McCauley ’59

Born in Portland, Mike attended Roosevelt High School and Reed before graduating in mathematics from the University of Oregon in 1960. He earned a master’s in economics from Portland State University and worked as an economist for the State of Oregon, the Secretary of State, the Department of Employment, Hyster Company, and Bonneville Power Administration.

Mike worked for a time at Portland’s famed Vat & Tonsure restaurant before moving to Seaside to care for his ailing parents. After moving to Astoria, he worked at the Ship Inn, a British pub. He enjoyed taking walks, listening to music, and writing poetry. His brother, James; daughter, Ann Margaret; and granddaughter, Estella Pecoraro, survive him. Mike’s first wife, Ann Goddard Jackson, lives in Portland, and his second wife, Jann Ingle Dryer, died in 2013.
