Honoring The Life Of Dr. Jon Woods September 18, 2015
Pat Tiberi, R-OH
"Mr. Speaker, I rise today to honor the life and legacy of Dr. Jon Woods, the long-time director of The Ohio State University Marching Band. He passed away on Saturday, September 12th fittingly on a day when so many of his former students were gathered together for the alumni game to perform with the current band during pre-game and half-time shows. I was privileged to be one of his students when I was a member of The Best Damn Band In The Land (TBDBITL). Dr. Woods grew up in Pennsylvania, studied music education, and received a bachelor’s degree from Indiana University of Pennsylvania, a master’s degree from Penn State University, and a doctorate from “that school up North”—the University of Michigan. After serving 10 years as an associate director he became the director in 1983. For 28 years he led TBDBITL. He was an innovator, creating computer-designed halftime shows that are now one of the band’s trademarks. He led by example, quiet but firm, encouraging comradery and promoting a tradition of excellence. Notably, he always strove to improve the band’s performances and inspired that drive in his students. Unusual among his peers, Dr. Woods was also a professor and an advisor. In fact, he felt his greatest legacy was his students. During his career his name became synonymous with the band as he directed shows at 35 bowl games and three presidential inaugurations. It was my honor to work with him to secure the band’s ability to march in the 1989 inaugural parade for President George Bush, the 2001 inaugural parade for President George W. Bush and the 2009 inaugural parade for President Barack Obama. He said his favorite game was the 2002 National Championship overtime win against The University of Miami. Dr. Woods’ greatest honor was dotting the “I” during his final season. A trombone player himself, Dr. Woods looked forward to retiring so he could be more involved in his own musical group, Trombones Plus. He was also looking forward to travelling with his wife, Donna and spending time with his children and granddaughter, Reese. While his family will deeply feel his loss, Dr. Woods touched countless people’s lives. He will be missed by his students, the university, and the TBDBITL community."
