Welcome, and thank you for coming to the Jerry Ross website.

Jerry Ross wrote the musical scores for two of the most popular and enduring musicals in Broadway Theater, The Pajama Game and Damn Yankees, two shows which personify the innocence and exuberance of the Golden Age of Broadway. Along with hits from those shows, such as “Hey There,” “(Ya Gotta Have) Heart,” and “Hernando’s Hideaway,” he wrote well-loved pop standards, most notably the Tony Bennett chart-topper “Rags To Riches.”

It is our honor and pleasure to create this presence for Jerry Ross. His twenty-nine years were too few, but the gifts of his songs live always as a testament to his generous talent. We – his wife, Judy , and his daughter, Janie -- are happy to share as much as we can to give you a glimpse of his life and accomplishments and link you to information beyond the scope of our site.

We intend to keep this website growing. Please feel free to email us if you have any questions, comments, or even if you have information or memories about him that you might like to share with us.

Looking forward –
- Judy Coulter and Janie Ross Coulter

Addendum: My mother, Judy Coulter, died on July 18, 2010. I am keeping our welcome as is, because it still somehow feels appropriate that we both welcome you in this virtual world. -Janie
