Not sure what to say?

We would like offer our condolences and sympathy to the family, friends and fans of Dr. Frank Jobe.

Dr.Jobe played a BIG part in the history of Major League Baseball (MLB) with his history making "Tommy John" surgery.

His technique extended the careers of many, many baseball players.

Rest In Peace (RIP) !!!

Meredith and I were close friends in High School. I had the privilege of meeting Dr. Jobe once and still remember his gentle yet enveloping personality. It is a sad loss when one so accomplished and giving leaves us.

I was privileged to meet Dr. Jobe at an event for one of the schools where he was educated. He was a fine man as well as a stellar physician. I join those who express condolences for his loss to his son and daughter-in-law, Meredith and Carol, whom I know; and to his other family and friends, of which there are many. May he R.I.P.

As a totally satisfied patient of Dr. Jobe's artistry, I thank him and hold him and the family close to my heart.

Meredith was one of my classmates, and I use to work with Dr. Chris Jobe in surgery. I never met Dr. F. Jobe. But as a baseball fan, I thank him for saving so many baseball careers, and a BIG 'thank you' for his service to this country, and I know he was a great man. So to Mrs. Jobe and all the family, I send my thoughts and prayers. Because of the wonderful Grace of God, I know he is in Heaven now, and you will all be reunited one day. God bless.

Frank was our dearest friend. Whether in LA. , Paris or at Dodger Stadium it was always fun just to be with the Jobes. We will miss his gentle and thoughtful demeanor and the many kind things he did for us, particularly his friendship Joan & Marco

Dr. Jobe was a true gentleman. He'll be missed by many of his friends who had the pleasure to know him. Robert Allen, L A Dodgers Press Box attendant.
