Jack Rouse, who moved to Annapolis, Md., in 1947, where he practiced law for many years, died Feb. 5, 1998. He was 85. "The best thing I ever did," he wrote in our 50th-year book, "was to move from Baltimore to Annapolis ...in a small firm, Rouse, Underwood & Miller, in a small town. I have enjoyed tremendously what I am doing -- witness the fact that I have not retired [that was in 1984] and am still going strong in the land of pleasant living."
Jack came from a large Princeton family. Besides his father, John G. Rouse Sr. '05, he had several uncles and cousins who were Princetonians. Like his four-year college roommate, Bow Davis, who died in 1987, Jack was a native of Baltimore who prepared for college at Gilman.
In 1939 he married Barbara Cooper, and the couple had two sons, John G. III and Michael, and a daughter, Elizabeth. They survive, as do four grandchildren. Jack once wrote he had no special interests "except my wife, three children, and four grandchildren -- and that's a tall order." To them all we offer our sincere sympathies.
