Jack was preceded in death by his parents Lloyd and Anna Ross and two brothers Lloyd; Karl. He is
survived by his wife of 57 years, Oonagh Ross, son Douglas Ross (wife Terri), daughter Fiona Files
(husband Garry) and grandchildren Hailey Ross and Garrett Files.

Jack graduated Yale University in 1953 and obtained his law degree from the University of Michigan in
1956. He was admitted to the Colorado Bar Association in 1956 as a Water Law attorney and began his
career with the Denver Water Board. Jack was a part of the Saunders, Snyder Ross & Dickson law firm
before joining Dufford & Brown. Jack was appointed by President Ronald Reagan as the federal
representative and Chair of the Upper Colorado River Commission from 1984 to 1992. During his free
time, he enjoyed skiing, fly fishing, and sailing with his family. His discipline and wit will be missed.

A private celebration of life will be held at a future date.
