I had the pleasure of meeting John on a few occasions when he visited his brother Bob in Twin Lakes. John seemed to be the type of man who truly thought about what he wanted to say and did so in a concise manner, a characteristic i have strong respect for in a person. The world was a better place with him here.

I want to send my condolences to the Jooss family. It was heartbreaking to hear about his passing. John was my teacher,coach,and school store supervisor during my Wilson years. My most fondest Middle School memories include Mr. Jooss. I remember him as a great spirited man that always had something positive to say. Even when I made him a little red in the face during basketball practice for goofing around. He always encouraged me to work hard and do my best. I am thankful for his passion to make a difference in my life. A great man with a warm heart.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

A finer teacher, coach, and mentor could not be found. I attended Wilson Jr. in the early 70’s, participated in several sports, and often had daily contact with “Mr. Jooss”. As a teenager, I felt the passion that he had for life. He commanded respect with just his presence, and called things as he saw them. If he knew you, he took an interest in you. I’m very saddened; truly wish that I had crossed paths with him in recent years. My prayers are with your entire family.

John and I went round and round as middle school VB coaches and then as coach/official. I'd also run into him when he subbed at Einstein. We always had stories to share. What a guy!!!
