In Memoriam: Donald J. Lindsay, 78

Financial Analyst at MHT, Chem, Chase


The Chase Alumni Association mourns the passing of longtime member  Donald J. Lindsay, of Brookline, MA. We only recently learned of his death on September 13, 2019. He was 78.


Lindsay earned his undergraduate degree at Harvard, and both a law degree and MBA from Columbia.


He worked for Chase Manhattan from 1967 to 1985, holding a variety of managment positions responsible for credit and marketing in various domestic and international corporate banking portfolios. Lindsay managed staff responsible for Chase's credit and management training programs and served as President of three Chase domestic banking subsidiaries. He served Chase in London and Toronto, as well as New York.


Lindsay went on to State Street Bank Boston for another 18-year stretch, leaving in 2003 as a Senior VP and Senior Managing Director in State Street Global Markets. From 2004 to 2007, he served as a Senior Director, Risk Management, for Investors Bank & Trust, before returning to State Street for five years.


Among his survivors are his wife of 41 years, Andrea.




Please send remembrances to
From Hans van den Houten: Don and I met in the Credit Training Program in 1967 and developed a personal connection through the Chase. We walked different path during our careers in the financial world, but we stayed in close contact for years. His marriage brought him to Hungary with frequent stays and visits. The last few years, our contact was less frequent, in part because of the corona situation, as well as my travels to Oregon and absence from New York. I will always remember Don as a good friend of our times at Chase and thereafter.
