Jerry’s professional career has been focused on quality control services associated with construction in the DC/Baltimore area for over thirty years. For the last twenty-eight years, he has worked with Specialized Engineering as their first employee. Originally from southwestern Pennsylvania, Jerry Ross came to the Washington DC area initially in 1986 and became a full-time resident of the district in 1992. In 1999, he and his wife of thirty years Kristy, moved to the eastern panhandle of West Virginia where they still reside today. Jerry was first introduced to Special Love through a childhood friend who was associated with the Hanson family and needed someone to fill out a foursome for the annual golf tournament. The relationship with the organization has grown from there over the years through support both personally and professionally, with most recently being part of the golf tournament committee for the past few years.
