George and Danielle Ross Bio
George grew up in Winnetka, attended New Trier High School, and studied at Tulane University and the Iowa Writer’s Workshop. Since 2003, he has worked as an investment analyst and portfolio manager at First Eagle Investment Management in New York City.
Danielle Fallon Ross was born in Columbus, Ohio. She attended Columbus Academy, earned a BA in mathematics and Masters in Math Education from University of Virginia and currently teaches high school math at Packer Collegiate in Brooklyn Heights. She and George met on the subway in 2009 and married in 2014. They have two children – Lily Georgiana Ross (4 yrs) and Peter Wilkinson Ross (2 yrs). The family lives in Brooklyn, NY.
Throughout his childhood, George visited Castle Park as a guest of his uncle Ned and aunt Debby Jannotta. He has fond memories of summer days at the beach and the Barnswallow with the Jannotta cousins and of pitched father-son battles on the tennis courts. His father Peter, who never missed a Labor Day weekend if he could help it, was often seen with ukulele in hand performing with Ned at the sing-along.
Danielle also has family in nearby Saugatuck and elsewhere in Western Michigan and we are thrilled at the prospect of returning to our Midwest roots and spending more time close to family.
