Mark Wallace, one of CSX Corp.’s top executives, died Nov. 28 of cancer, the company said Nov. 29.

Wallace, who joined the Jacksonville-based railroad company in 2017, was serving as an executive vice president.

He had been executive vice president of sales and marketing but CSX said in June he was shifting to a role focusing on special projects and initiatives as he received treatments for cancer.

“Throughout his illness, Mark maintained his characteristic passion for life, good humor and concern for the loved ones he leaves behind,” CEO James Foote said in a news release.

“Mark’s acumen, energy and integrity helped drive the company’s overall transformation and more recently played a pivotal role in the ongoing cultural transformation of CSX,” he said.
