It is with great sadness that we note the death of former President and General Manager George Jauss.

George began his public television career at WDSE in 1967 and served as General Manager from 1981 to 1995, following service as the station’s Assistant General Manager. His tenure was marked by significant expansion of the station’s programming services for all ages as the educational mission of the station grew to encompass the broader community. His vision resulted in numerous productions including Venture North, Album, Doctors on Call, Almanac North and countless others.

We extend our condolences to his wife Jeanne and family. He will be greatly missed by Jeanne, his five children, 11 grandchildren, and five great-grandchildren. George will also be missed by the staff who worked with him.
