Rev. Dr. John T. Ash III and his wife, Roxie, have lived across the street from the Presbyterian Church of Mays Landing, in the pastor’s

residence, built in 1892. ‘Over the years I have seen young people grow up, marry, and have families of their own. It doesn’t make me feel old, though. This is a very alive community and there’s always a freshness about the job that is extremely rewarding,’ he said.

19 years and still learning: 6 months at the Santa Fe New Mexican, 2 years at the Gloucester County Times, and The Press of Atlantic City ever since.
