Jerry Ross was the White House Press Secretary under the administration of President Dale.
He was protrayed by Martin Short.
History[edit | edit source]
Although he does seem to be skilled at his work and loyal to his superior officer, the President, Jerry Ross did have one weakness, a fondness for women.
The Martians exploit his Achilles' heel by deploying the Martian Girl as part of a White House tour in order to assassinate President Dale. Ross is oblivious to the fact she does not dress or behave like most Earth women and admits her to a restricted section of the White House in order to hit on her.
This leads to his doom, as Jerry Ross gets killed and the Martian assassine then proceeds to the private quarters of the presidential family.
He was killed when the Martian Girl knocked him down with a heavy vase, after biting off his finger.
