Ashley "Jus Com" Watson

Early one morning on October 19th, 1958 and angel visited Olga Mitchell & Lloyd Watson’s home in New River District, Santa Cruz, St. Elizabeth Jamaica and delivered to them a bouncing baby boy, Ashley Watson.  He was reared by his grandparents Mr.& Mrs. Huge Tibby. Ashley was an active, smart and rambunctious child. While living with his grandparents he grew rapidly and was quick to learn.  His grandfather instilled in him the principles of moral Christian living that allowed him to develop the interpersonal skills needed to survive in the real world. He attended the Santa Cruz All Age School at the age of six.  After graduating at the age of 16, Ashley had no prospects or means of acquiring higher education so he looked for work with his only means of transportation – a bicycle.  At the age of 16 he was employed at the Shell gas station and within a short stint his work activities grew. Mr. Wilfred Nemhard noticed that Ashley was intelligent and had great potential, so he encouraged and supported him as much as he could. While admiring his eldest brother Rudolph operating heavy equipment, Ashley aspiring to become one of the D4 tractor trailer operators,  informed Mr. Wilfred Nemhard about the offer and without any question he gave him the challenge which he operated for 14 years. After Ashley’s long stint in working in the field of plowing  & bulldozing, his thirst for a deeper knowledge took him across the seas to the United States of America.  In 1988 he entered Belle Glade where he learned how to cut sugar cane and picked apples.  In 1990 he moved to Orlando where he pursued a different career as a skill code contractor with Eagle Construction Company, Ltd until the deterioration of his health.  In 2002 God had another plan.  After a visit to the doctor Dorrette was told that she was pregnant.  Dorrette gave birth to a healthy and happy baby boy Deddy.  In 2006 Ashley decided not to waste anymore time so Dorretee and him were engaged and tied the knot shortly after. Two weeks before he succumbed to his illness, Ashley called some of his family and friends into his room where they formed a circle and held hands to witness his anointment by an ordinate elder of the North Orlando S.D.A. Church on the believing of his faith, that if he forgave others the wrongs they have done unto him, his father in heaven will also forgive him and if he confessed his sins his Father is faithful and just to forgive him of his sins and cleanse him from all unrighteousness.  On October 28th, at 7:15 pm, Ashley Watson went to be with his Lord.  Ashley leaves to cherish his memory, wife Dorrette; sons Kim & Deddy; daughter Shawn Kay; sisters Alma, Estmin;  brothers Rudolph, Roy & Clayon, grandsons, his employer John Zandan, and a host of nieces, nephews and other relatives and friends.

James Anthony Hinson

September 22, 2015 (Orlando, FL) The Board of Directors of Dr. Phillips, Inc. and The Dr. P. Phillips Foundation (Dr. Phillips Charities) announced today with profound sorrow the passing of Jim Hinson, the organization’s former President, CEO and Chairman.

“A visionary leader for over 50 years, Jim took Dr. Phillips, Inc. from a successful for-profit family business to one of the region’s most generous and important charitable organizations,” said Ken Robinson, current President and CEO of Dr. Phillips Charities.

Once the largest citrus producer in the world, Dr. Philip Phillips left a legacy that spanned several generations of the Phillips family, and Jim Hinson joined the family business at a pivotal time.

“Jim had the privilege of working for each member of the entire founding family, including Dr. Philip Phillips, his wife, Della Phillips and their eldest son, Howard Phillips. Through their vision Jim learned first-hand the family philosophies that would guide Dr. Phillips Charities through growth and diversification,” continued Robinson.

“Helping Others Help Themselves” became a guiding principle for the organization under Jim’s leadership, and his personal oversight on more than $150 million dollars in grant-making during his tenure resulted in grants that continue to have a significant and lasting impact on the community.

Focusing on innovative and worthy capital projects that addressed community needs and demonstrated potential ongoing support from the community became Jim’s hallmark. Despite his passing, Jim Hinson’s impactful legacy in Central Florida will continue to be felt in nearly every aspect of life in this community, perhaps most visibly in health care and the arts.

Tapping into the vast business knowledge he learned from Dr. Philip Phillips, Jim worked with Orlando Health to fund The Dr. P. Phillips Hospital and the Howard Phillips Center for Children and Families.

With a nod to Della Phillips’ devotion to music and the arts, Jim encouraged the Dr. Phillips Charities board to provide the lead grant for the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts. And to ensure that Howard Phillips’ passion for education and youth would be recognized, programs such as Junior Achievement, the YMCA of Central Florida, “Safe Start” and numerous initiatives at the University of Central Florida and both the Orange and Osceola Public Schools were made possible by grants from the Dr. Phillips Charities with Jim Hinson at the helm.

One example of Jim’s unique hands-on leadership is the organization’s recent $1 million dollar gift to Orange and Osceola Public Schools in their mission to address the plight of homeless children.  “Making it possible for every homeless child in Orange and Osceola County to receive new clothing for two years was a particular moment of pride for Jim,” Ken Robinson said. “And making certain each child was sized correctly with the clothes delivered wrapped like a gift was trademark Jim Hinson style.”

“Jim was the perfect man to lead Dr. Phillips Charities, transforming the organization, preparing it for the future in a way only Jim could have done,” Dr. Phillips Charities current Chairman, Jim Ferber, stated. “Certainly Dr. Phillips Charities, and the myriad of beneficiaries of the organization’s charitable gifts, have all benefitted from Jim’s leadership and wise counsel. In order for any organization or community to not just grow but to flourish you need a strong leader. Jim has been that leader for Dr. Phillips Charities, the Dr. Phillips Community and Orlando. He will be greatly missed.”

Jim is survived by his wife, Rita Hinson and his three sons; James Anthony Hinson Jr., Donald Scott Hinson, John Douglas Hinson, seven grandchildren and one great grandson. Services will be held Saturday, September 26th at 11:00 am at First Baptist Church Downtown located at 120 East Pine Street, Orlando, Florida 32801.

Parking is available in the parking garage on Church Street behind First Baptist. The family has asked that in lieu of flowers a donation be made to the YMCA of Central Florida. Gifts can be mailed to the YMCA Metro Office at 433 North Mills Avenue, Orlando, Florida 32803.

Lee Paul Foerster

    Lee Paul Foerster was born to George and Doris Foerster in Cleveland Ohio on August 7, 1953. In the early morning hours of Sunday August 9, 2015 Lee crossed over into the spirit world.

     Lee was a generous and loving man. If you were lucky enough to be counted as one of his friends, you knew that his true nature was kind and playful. He was always willing to listen, to lend money, to lend a hand, or give his opinion.

     Lee brought fun into the lives of almost everyone he touched. With his infectious grin and his engaging personality, he could light up any room he walked into. He loved life and he ENJOYED life. He made it his mission to enhance his family time with spontaneous vacations and adventures. He liked to put the car on cruise control and tell his baby daughter Samantha, "Let's see where the car takes us!" She always said "I hope its somewhere fun". And it usually was. We went there, we did that,....we usually bought the T-shirt!
      Lee worked as hard as he played. Employed as a dispatcher for a trucking company in Ohio, he headed for sunny Florida in 1978, after a brutal snowstorm. He worked for a variety of companies throughout Central Florida, including Buena Vista Construction, Home Depot, Builder's Square II, where he met the love of his life, KoJo Industries, (who sent him to Aruba), 84 Lumber, and ending his career at Bar Harbor Seafood where he was employed for almost 20 years. Over the years he became a Master Of All Trades.

        He is survived by his beloved daughter Samantha, his heartbroken wife Ellyn, and his stepson and friend Robert Lee Tidwell, as well as his older brother Rich Foerster and his wife Shiela, thier children Richie Foerster and his family, Angel Marshall  and her family, his younger sister Lisa Yeager and her children Brittany and Nico Yeager, and of course, his two "Boys" Jake and Hershey his Chocolate Labs.

         He also leaves behind COUNTLESS wonderful friends whose lives he has touched in so many ways, and whose lives will now forever feel that void. Lee always tried to make memories and memories are what he has left to us.

         Lee, you are now and always will be so very loved and missed. 77777 yeah yeah yeah!
