My thoughts go out to the family of a great man who was always kind and full of joy in life. Jerry was always thoughtful of his brother john who had special needs. I enjoyed many long conversations with Jerry over the years as he often came into to Shares, Inc. to talk to me when I worked there.
May Jerry rest in peace.
