We are sad to report that the Hon. David Mattax, Commissioner of Insurance, State of Texas, passed away on April 13, 2017, following an extended illness. Commissioner Mattax was 60.  Gov. Greg Abbott released the following statement in tribute to the Commissioner:

“Today Cecilia and I mourn the loss of a friend, colleague, and distinguished public servant. Commissioner David Mattax truly dedicated his life and career to the State of Texas. A brilliant lawyer whose loyalty to Texas never wavered, David was a doting son and brother who took great pride in mentoring young lawyers who would become the leaders of tomorrow.

David’s brilliance, wit, and wisdom will be dearly missed by all who knew him. Cecilia and I extend our deepest sympathies and prayers to the Mattax family.”

SLS likewise extends its condolences to Commissioner Mattax’s family, friends, and colleagues.
