Dr. Ross was a man of honor, integrity and true modesty. He helped so many who suffered deep traumatic pain return to normalcy, though he rarely took credit for his work. He was gifted and he truly cared deeply for his clients. Dr. Ross was a dedicated and loving family man. He had an infectious sense of humor and he loved the Florida Gators. I'm sure where he is now, the Gators will always defeat the Noles. Rest in peace, Sir. You will be deeply missed by so many. Lisa Fair

Jerry was a one of a kind guy. He meant more to me than I could ever express. He always had time to listen and was good for a joke. He taught me some choice words in Italian, and gave me chances to grow in my job here at the center. The world is definitely a better place because of him. Patty if you need anything please reach out , me and Gina will be here for you.

My thoughts and prayers are with your family. Dr. Ross will always be the vision I have when I think about a dedicated father and grandfather. I had the honor of meeting Dr. Ross as he and Mrs. Ross would come to watch their grandsons play football. Dr. Ross would be at every practice and game. He was also complimentary and caring for all the players, and always had something inspirational to say. His smile was brightest as his children and grandchildren shined. He will forever be missed, and his kindness will always live on

Many years ago Gary, his Brother Sam and I went out fishing in Gary's boat in Charlotte Harbor. We thought we caught a shark but as we got it closer to the boat it turned out to be a large sting ray! Didn't take too long to cut the line on that!
