Ferndale Public Schools 2h · Ferndale Family, It is with great sorrow that I share news of the passing of Ferndale giant Jack Aronson. Jack was a proud graduate of Ferndale High School, a restaurateur, and founder of Garden Fresh Gourmet. But more than that, Jack and his beloved wife Annette, were committed to helping our community and our children achieve a better future. As part of that commitment, the Aronsons made an incredible investment in Ferndale Public Schools to help improve literacy. Jack knew that success for any student was built on a strong foundation of literacy. Due to the incredible generosity of the Aronsons Ferndale Schools was able to hire a full-time reading specialist and purchase flexible learning furniture, computers, and licenses for READ 180 curriculum. READ 180 is a researched-based reading tool that blends reading comprehension, academic vocabulary and writing skills for students. Thanks to the Aronsons, Ferndale High School has been able to provide vital reading intervention and tutoring for hundreds of students. Jack’s commitment was much more than just financial. In addition to being involved in the reading program at FHS, he and Annette regularly took the students on culturally diverse field trips and brought them lunch so that they could talk and get to know each other. Jack was committed to establishing personal relationships with our students and school community. Jack’s engagement traveled far beyond the boundaries of Ferndale. He served on the board of Beyond Basics (an organization promoting youth literacy), as well as the national board of the Salvation Army. Through their foundation, Jack and Annette were also significant contributors to Boys and Girls Clubs of South Oakland County, as well as other charitable causes focusing on bettering the lives of children and young adults. While many will remember Jack for his incredible success in the business world. We in Ferndale have been blessed to know Jack personally and to witness the truly life changing impact of his generosity. The greatest legacy any of us can hope to leave behind is one where through our actions in life others will benefit when we are gone. Jack has truly left a legacy that will positively impact our community for generations to come. On behalf of the entire Ferndale Schools family, I want to send my deepest condolences to Annette and the entire Aronson family. Thank you Jack. Dania H. Bazzi, PhD Superintendent Ferndale Schools

This is so sad. I first met Jack back in the Club House bbq days. When I was a PTO chair way back at Taft he would donate to our game nights that we first instilled. Such a wonderful person. Our community has lost a great one.

Jack was a family friend and one of the most humble and generous people I have met. From serving food at my grad party and my wedding, giving me business advice and supporting my work to being a great shining light to brighten up my day whenever I saw him, Jack was one of a kind. He helped everyone and cared about everyone. Jack will be missed.

So sad. Fond memories of playing hoops with him and after he would pass out samples of his salsa when he was first starting out. Such a nice man.

Jack seemed like a wonderful man. My dad’s landscaping company did some work for him a few years back and he always made sure to send the guys home with plenty of chips & salsa. May he rest is peace.
