From Herald-Sun tributes 6/7/13
Jannes served as a radar technician and weather observer, working for the Bureau of Meteorology, at the Davis Antarctic Station in 1959.
He remained with the Bureau after returning to Australia and worked in many places around the country, including the tropical paradise of Willis Island, off the Queensland coast.
He retired in 1987 as a Senior Technical Officer and since then has been involved in community work, mainly as a treasurer for various organisations.
He served diligently, until his illness prevented him, attending to the duties of Treasurer on the National Council of the ANARE Club.
His work and attitude were well respected by the Council and the Club in general, a true gentleman he will be missed.
From Eulogy presented at his funeral.
