Paul McCartney, John Eastman’s brother-in-law, recently paid tribute to him on social media after his death on August 9.
“John Eastman, my dear brother-in-law, has passed away.” “After knowing each other for almost 50 years, this is a very sad moment for me and our families.”
McCartney described John as one of the sweetest and smartest guys he had ever met. He added that as a lawyer, John assisted him in his business dealings and that everyone enjoyed his sense of humor. The author continued,
“We’ve had so many good moments together over the years, but when it came to business, he was invincible.” There is so much more to say about his outstanding qualities, but words can hardly explain his zest for life and our love for this great guy.”
Everything there is to know about John Eastman
John Eastman was the Beatles’ lawyer and his sister Linda Eastman was married to Paul McCartney, one of the band members. According to the NYU School of Law profile, John represented the estate of painter Francis Bacon and the family of artist Willem de Kooning. In 2004, he told NYU law students that they had the potential to influence the things that mattered to them and the determination not to be co-opted, but to be who they want to be.
When the organization went bankrupt, members sought the experienced advice of John and his father Lee. Paul was then John’s brother-in-law and Lee’s son-in-law. Paul also has two sisters-in-law, Laura and Louise Jr. Linda and Paul were married in March 1969 in a ceremony in London. Linda and John first met in 1967 when Linda was on duty in a Georgia Fame performance. Through Linda’s marriage to Paul, John had three nieces, Heather, Mary and Stella, as well as a cousin, James. Linda, on the other hand, died in April 1998, at the age of 56, after a battle with breast cancer.
In 2021, John also paid $26.5 million for a condominium near Central Park, which he shared with his wife. On August 9, John died of pancreatic cancer, leaving behind his wife, Jodie Eastman. Despite being associated with a prominent band, John does not have a Wikipedia page, therefore details of his date of birth, occupation and educational background are unclear.
