Honolulu Star-Advertiser - - IN MEMORY -

Jube was born in north­east­ern Penn­syl­va­nia, the youngest son of Michael and Anna, a coal miner and house­wife. Ed­u­cated at Colby Col­lege in Maine and the Univer­sity of Chicago Law School, he fol­lowed his best friend to Hawaii where, af­ter a brief stint in the army, he joined the law firm of Ash­ford & Wris­ton and rose to part­ner. Jube even­tu­ally went solo and among other en­deav­ors, served as Gen­eral Coun­sel for Ti­tle Guar­anty of Hawaii. In 2009, Honolulu Magazine rec­og­nized him as Lawyer of the Year for real es­tate law. An avid golfer, wine lover, foodie, his­tory buff, phi­lan­thropist, cham­pion of ed­u­ca­tion, and men­tor to many, Jube rel­ished the game of life, was ad­mired for his in­tel­lect, and had a fierce love for and loy­alty to his friends and fam­ily.

He is sur­vived by Tere­sita, his wife of 50 years, chil­dren Ruben and Melissa and spouses, and two grand­chil­dren.
