Jass of Tarrytown, NY on January 11,1968.  Kenneth graduated from Pleasantville High School, studied psychology at SUNY Albany and received his Bachelors of Nursing from the University of Virginia.  He had served in the Army Reserves, achieving the rank of Captain.  His time in the reserves included a year of active duty as a nurse.  At the time of his death, Kenneth was working as a public health nurse for the State of Alaska in Kodiak.
