Early life and career
Born in Ireland into an Anglo-Irish family and known by his friends as "Jasper" during World War II, Cross served with the British Army and fought for the liberation of France. In 1944, he was commissioned into the Royal Engineers Movement Control Section. After the war he joined the diplomatic service and eventually served as a Trade Commissioner in Halifax, Winnipeg, and Kuala Lumpur, before becoming senior Trade Commissioner in Montreal.
Kidnapping
On 5 October 1970, Cross was abducted at gunpoint from his British diplomatic residence at 1297 Redpath Crescent, in the Golden Square Mile district of Montreal, and held as a hostage for two months as the FLQ made a series of demands to the Quebec government. He was released on 3 December, after 1 month, 28 days in captivity. In exchange for his release, his abductors would get safe passage to Cuba. The talks were held at the Canada Pavilion, located on Notre Dame Island, the site of Expo 67. This site was declared Cuban territory for the period of the talks.
Six members of the FLQ's "Liberation Cell" were later convicted of Cross's kidnapping when they returned to Canada over time.
Cross said of his kidnapping:
"They told me about 10:00 o'clock on Wednesday evening that they had, the police knew where I was. Nothing much happened for about the next four hours. Then the power was cut at I think around 2:00 in the morning. I was in bed at the time; they got me up. They handcuffed me, they took me into a corridor in the middle of the house. They handcuffed me to a doorknob and I spent the night. It's a very uncomfortable position." In 2010, on the 40th anniversary of the day that sparked the October Crisis, Cross agreed to speak to CBC Radio's The Current about the events surrounding his kidnapping. There is also a transcript of a taped memoir online, uploaded by Churchill College.
Later life
Cross went on to serve as Under-Secretary in various divisions of Britain's Department of Trade and Industry and Department of Energy. In 1971, he was made a Companion of the Order of St Michael and St George (CMG).
His death from COVID-19 was confirmed by his son-in-law on 20 January 2021.
In fiction
Cross is depicted as a character in the novels The Revolution Script by Brian Moore and My October by Claire Holden Rothman. His kidnapping is also the basis for Edo van Belkom's short story "The October Crisis".
