John G. Ross ’58

Published in May 12, 2007, issue

Jack Ross died Nov. 14, 2006, after a four-year struggle with cancer, leaving Pat, his wife of 48 years.

After preparing at Exeter, Jack followed his father, Leland '30, and his brother, Tony '55, to Princeton. He roomed with Jack McAtee, Jack Danforth, Lou Edgar, and Lou Brinsmade. In his sophomore year he joined Tiger Inn. Jack was an economics major.

Upon graduation, he served in the Army. After a short stint in banking, Jack became a member of the New York Stock Exchange and forged a successful career as a specialist on the floor of the exchange.

Jack and Pat lived in the same house in Bernardsville, N.J., for 47 years. For the last 14 years, they divided their time between New Jersey and Key Largo, Fla.

Jack's main avocations were hunting and fishing, and he became an expert in both endeavors. He loved taking trips to exotic places to pursue these hobbies. How many of you have entered a fly-fishing contest for billfish off the coast of Costa Rica?

The class sends deepest sympathy to Pat, their three children, and four grandchildren.
