Jeff Ritzmann has been actively involved in UFO research for over 20 years. He refers to his involvement as a personal one, after several odd events in his life from age 5 on prompted him to explore the field of UFO research. In an effort to learn more he’s applied his work as a digital imaging professional to the ever growing pile of UFO photos and video and has become a recognized image analyst in the UFO field working on visual data. He was the primary image analyst in the O’Hare UFO case, and is cited in the NARCAP report of the event for his work. Jeff has also worked on landing trace cases, and “experiencer” support investigations.
He was the official chat host on AOL for "Sightings" in the early days of theI nternet, and he founded the first experiencer support group (AES) on the Internet through AOL’s "Parascope," where he was the UFO related chat host after Sightings closed it’s operations on the service. Working with abovetopsecret.com, the largest alternative topics message board community, Jeff has done examinations on multiple UFO cases as their image analyst. His experiences with the UFO phenomena continue to present day.
