"You need to go see Jack Ross" I was told. It was 1966. I was 14 years old. I had built a ham radio receiver and I needed help to tune it up correctly. There were not very many ham operators in west Orange county back then. After I called Jack on the phone, I made a 3 mile bicycle trip to Oakland and met him for the first time. Jack patiently helped me to get my project working correctly and thus began a friendship that continued for decades. After he moved to Windermere, I would talk to Jack by ham radio on my way home from work at Disney in the 70's. He would invite me to stop by at his radio shack for a visit which I did many times over the years. When I talked to Jack on the radio, I would say "Hi Jack - don't say that in an airport!". It always got a laugh out of him. That's the way I remember him - laughing. Jack was an "Elmer" to me which is a special name for a mentor in ham radio. I am sure I was not the only one he mentored. I will fondly remember him always.

Remembering--- I remember the first time I met Jack. I was very young then ; he was working for South Lake Apopka and came into a family grove near Oakland.
Later years he loaned me his telescope and I saw the planet Saturan and it's rings for the first time.
He was always generous with people.

I have fond memories of Jack who spent hours talking to me on ham radio (2 meters) while I commuted from Winter Park to UF in Gainesville. He was genuinely interested in my degree and career plans.

Jack was a great Ham radio operator and friend. He would have been a great engineer and was a great grower. He will be missed. Regards to the family from W4YRL.

Jack will be missed by many of his Ham friends. He was always ready to help anyone that heeded his help. We all enjoyed his 2 meter reperter and have many happy contacts on it. What a pleasure to have know Jack. My condolences to his family.
