John Thomas Roub, Jr.

OCEAN CITY — John Thomas “Jack” Roub, Jr., 82, went home to be with the Lord on Sept. 9, 2020, one day shy of his 83rd birthday.

He was born on Sept. 10, 1937, in Washington, D.C., to John Thomas Roub, Sr., and Elizabeth Alice Quinn. He is survived his daughter, Holly Roub Scott, and her mother, Judith Morris Werley; his son-in-law, John Thomas Scott; his grandchildren, William Roub Scott and his wife, Sara Sanders Scott, Mark Edward Scott, Andrew Thomas Scott and Katherine Elizabeth Scott; his sister, Sally Edwards; his sister, and brother-in-law, Suzie and Dick Kemper; and many nieces and nephews.

Jack graduated from George Washington High School in Alexandria, Va. and attended the University of Virginia. During the 1950s, he served in the Naval Reserve. He worked for United Airlines as a customer service representative and instructor for 35 years at Chicago O’Hare, New York JFK, and Washington Dulles and Reagan National airports. He loved football and during these years held season tickets to the Washington Redskins, playing for a time in their band, and the Vanderbilt Commodores, his daughter’s alma mater. For several decades, he ran a college football bowl contest for family and friends and reveled in giving prizes. He retired in 1996 to live with his widowed mother in Ocean City. While there he was an active member of Holy Savior Catholic Church, the Knights of Columbus, the Hibernian Society, and served as a mentor at a local high school. In 2012 he moved to Macon, Ga., to live with his daughter and son-in-law and their family.

Jack loved his family and was especially proud of his grandchildren. He enjoyed visiting Disney World with them, a place he had taken Holly many times with his family in her childhood. Although he lived far away, he traveled frequently to Macon to attend many of his grandchildren’s sporting events and tell stories to their elementary classes. He took particular pride that all four of them had graduated from college and he avidly followed them as they began their careers. His eldest grandchild, Will, moved to New York City, a city he loved, Mark served in the military reserve, as had he, Andrew worked for an airline, as had he, and Katie cared for orphaned and abandoned children in Mexico. Although he never traveled to the children’s home, he became pen pals with several of the children there.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests individuals make a donation to the Casa Hogar children’s home education fund. Donations should be made out to First Presbyterian Church and marked in the memo line “Casa Hogar Education Donation.” Checks may be sent to First Presbyterian Church, 682 Mulberry St., Macon, Ga. 31201 or online at with a designation for Casa Hogar.
