Jack H. Santee graduated from the University of Oklahoma with a degree in Education in 1952 and an LLB from the College of Law in the Spring of 1956. Jack was admitted to the Oklahoma Bar shortly thereafter and joined the legal department of the “National Bank of Tulsa,” now Bank of Oklahoma. In February of 1957, he took a one-year leave of absence to accept a position as law clerk for the Honorable Royce Savage, Federal District Judge for the Northern District of Oklahoma, an incomparable trial judge. The reputation of Judge Savage was such that Jack had many opportunities at the end of his tenure with Judge Savage.
Jack joined the firm of Martin, Logan, Moyers, Martin & Hull in early 1958, whom he considered to be the best law firm in Tulsa, tracing its existence to pre-statehood in Oklahoma and having originated in Muskogee. Jack became a partner in the firm in 1963.
