Abstract: An elementary proof is presented showing that the function $ f\left( z \right) = \\ {J_\gamma }\left( z \right) \pm i{J_{\gamma + 1}} \left( z \right)$, where $ \gamma $ is a natural number, has no zeroes in the lower and upper half-planes respectively. The roots of $ f\left( z \right)$ are given for certain values of $ \gamma $ and their locations are plotted. Cartesian maps (mappings of constant coordinate lines) of $ f\left( z \right)$ are obtained, and special features of these maps are discussed. Some integrals with cylindrical kernels involving $ f\left( z \right)$ are obtained in terms of the zeroes of $ {J_\gamma }\left( z \right)$.
