MONETT, Mo. – Jerry Hall, co-founder of Jack Henry & Associates, died Monday at 69.

Hall co-founded the financial service technology provider in 1976 with John “Jack” Henry, who died in 2007 at age 71.

Born as an idea on the back of a napkin in a coffee shop, Hall and Henry started Jack Henry & Associates in space rented from an engine repair shop. The company went public in 1985, and ended its fiscal 2012 with net income of $155 million. As of Dec. 31, Jack Henry – which constructs integrated computer systems and processes ATM and debit card transactions for bank and credit unions – had roughly 11,900 customers nationwide and assets of $1.6 billion.

Hall, a Monett native, also served on the publicly traded company’s board of directors and was acting executive vice president.
