A message about our sorrow, gratitude, and what you can do to help.


There are no adequate words to describe what happened the morning of April 10, 2023, at our Old National Bank office in downtown Louisville. There are no adequate words to describe the pain the victims’ families are feeling. There are no adequate words to describe the heartbreak our Old National family is feeling. Those we lost. A message from our CEO.

We want to express our gratitude

We are also at a loss to describe the incredible gratitude we feel to all those who have come to the aid of the community and our ONB family. This includes:

  • The brave, heroic officers of the Louisville Metro Police Department who were on the scene in minutes, and the Louisville FBI.
  • The entire Louisville medical community, especially first responders and the staff at University of Louisville Health for the amazing care provided.
  • Louisville Mayor Greenberg and his team, as well as Governor Beshear and team, who have been unbelievably gracious and supportive.
  • The American Red Cross for all they do, as well as all who have given the gift of life. If you are looking for a way to honor the victims of this tragedy, giving blood is a great option as currently there is a significant shortage.
  • The religious and mental health communities in Louisville for providing passionate care and comfort.

We have been overwhelmed with an outpouring of love, care and support from individuals and organizations across the country. We remain mindful of and pray for all those who were injured, including two Louisville Metro police officers who risked their lives to save others, as well as multiple other Old National team members.

A woman giving blood


Old National and the Red Cross held a community blood drive on April 24; we had more than 500 team members give the gift of life. Thank you to those who participated.

We believe a blood donation is one of the best ways to honor everyone impacted by this tragedy. It’s never too late to give blood.

Remembering Those We Lost

Five extraordinary Old National team members lost their lives as a result of this tragic event. They were loving, generous and incredibly gifted. They poured themselves out, every day, in service of others, and we are committed to keeping their memories alive.

Josh Barrick

“Josh was a devoted husband, father, son, brother and friend. He would do anything for anyone and cherished his time with them. He had a wonderful sense of humor, was sentimental and was passionate about life.”

Josh’s business acumen was only surpassed by his passion for family, which always entered in our conversations. He shared many stories of his wife and children who were the center of his world."

"To know Josh is to love Josh, and this loss is felt in the hearts of so many. He was truly a remarkable man and was taken from us far too soon."

Deana Eckert

"She was the kindest, gentlest and TOUGHEST woman I’ve ever had the privilege to know. I’m thankful every day to have known her.”

“She was a rainbow of love – supportive and warm, and always friendly, kind and smiling."

“Deana was strong, courageous, committed and so incredibly smart! Her family was her life. Her mile-wide smile was ever-present and contagious. She will be so missed by so many.”

Tommy Elliott

"From the minute he woke up in the morning, he was thinking about others and what he could do for them. He would manage to take care of things before they even knew what was needed."

"He was forward-thinking, always focused on the next steps to move (us) forward. He was a friend to many who believed in making our community a better place to live and thrive."

"He enjoyed life. he enjoyed people. He enjoyed being in the mix. He enjoyed trying to get stuff done to move Louisville and Kentucky forward. He was serious about it, but he had fun with it."

Juliana Farmer

 “Juliana was a ray of sunshine, a joy to be around. She was a loving individual. She never complained. She will never die because her memory will be in our minds and our hearts."

“She was someone you were just drawn to with her bright personality. Through her actions and words, it was always evident that she deeply loved her family, friends and co-workers. She will be terribly missed by so many.”

“She loved life. She was a beautiful young lady. All I can say is that heaven has gained a beautiful angel.”

Jim Tutt

 “Jim was one of the kindest, most authentic and smartest people I have ever been around. It was obvious that his family and faith were at the center of his life.”

"He often talked with great pride about his wife, kids and grandkids, and his mission trips to other countries. Our community lost a great leader. He had given us so much and had so much more to give.”

“Jim was humble and brilliant – two rare pairings. He was creative and empowered others to use their strengths. I appreciated his genuine friendship. He was authentic and someone everyone loved to be around.”
