It is with deep sadness that we share the news that our dear friend and colleague, Ross E. Poulson Jr., passed away November 15, 2020 at OHSU in Portland, after a brief, heart-related illness.

Ross was born September 11, 1938 in Oakland, California, the son of Ross Everett Poulson Sr. and Hazel Fern (Dugger) Poulson.
