What an incredible mentor Mr. O was to so many students for so many years. Decent, humble and kind are just a few of the words that describe this fine man.

Jorge knew more about the fundamentals of basketball then anyone I know. He was a fierce competitor and hated to lose
I was fortunate to have Mr O as a shop teacher, to this day I am showing my Children and employees things he taught me. We were all blessed to have him in our lives. If I have one regret when it comes to him, it would be I did not get the chance to see him again and tell him how much he meant to all of us

Dear Mrs. Ortegon:

I was so sorry to learn that Mr. Ortegon had passed away. He was my drafting teacher at Paw Paw High School during the 1968-69 academic year. I loved his class; he was a great teacher. He made learning so much fun. I was one of only two girls in the class. Often, when I finished a drawing, he would look over my shoulder and say, "Not bad for a female." Later, in the 1990s, I ran into him at the Grape and Wine Festival in Paw Paw, and he told me that he still had all of my drawings from high school! What a compliment!

I don't know if you remember, but when your daughter Jory was born, I made a small statuette of a stork out of origami and drafting tools and brought it over to your house on M-43.

I will always remember Mr. Ortegon as one of my very favorite teachers in high school. My sincere condolences to you and your family.

Sincerely,

Jeanette Rybinsky
