Obituary

Jerold N. Ross, Sr., 59, of Salladasburg passed away on Thursday, Jan. 12, 2023 at Geisinger Jersey Shore. 

He was born in San Diego, California on March 13, 1963 to the late John Ross and A. J. (Ludwig) Edkin. Jerold was married to the former, Kelly M. Marshall on Feb. 14, 1985. They had 41 wonderful years together. 

 Jerold loved to help others, which was reflected in his career choices. He completed his education and training to be a paramedic. He worked as a paramedic until 2008 for Jersey Shore, Williamsport, Lock Haven and Muncy and won Paramedic of the Year and numerous other life saving awards. Jerold was a firefighter at both Citizens Hose Company of Jersey Shore Area and Larrys Creek Volunteer Fire Company. He was previously a chief for 30 years between both fire companies. Most recently, Jerold worked as the Chief Deputy Coroner of the Lycoming County Coroner’s office. 

An Outdoorsman, Jerold loved to hunt, fish and canoe. He was a huge fan of the Call of Duty video game and loved to play it on his off time. When he was younger, Jerold was also a wrestler. Jerold did anything his grandkids wanted to do. He was the best husband, dad and pappy his family could ask for. 

Surviving Jerold in addition to his loving wife, Kelly is a son, Jerold Ross, Jr. of Salladasburg; two daughters, Mariah (Matt) Ross of Bixby, Oklahoma; and Mylie King of Salladasburg; three grandchildren, Emily, Abby and Joseph Jr. King; a brother, Adam (Kristi) Ross of Jersey Shore; a brother-in-law, Kevin Fanning of Salladasburg; two uncles, Norman and Gary Ludwig both of Jersey Shore; and many nieces, nephews, friends, co-workers and colleagues.
