"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.
