    – [ ] I meet Jerry when I was 16
    Working at the grocery store until I turned 18 with 5 other guys and that made lifelong friendships thanks to Jerry
    The 6 of us keep in touch with each other and Jerry over the years with a few poker games
    Jerry mentored all 6 of us in our informative years Keeping us in line and thought us good work ethics that lasted us all of our careers Although life lead us all down different paths in life
    I like to think Jerry had a hand in each one of us to be successful in our own way with the lessons that he taught us early in life

    Thank you Jerry you be forever missed

    I will forever miss working with jerry. He has forever left a mark in my life. 2 years of working with him at the gas station, and everyday i knew when jerry came in it was about to be a fun shift. He kept the environment alive. Ill miss trying to tell him something from across the store and he would say “huh” several times as i repeated myself everytime as he pretended his hearing aids wernt working. Miss you jerry! Ive never been happier to be someones manager. I learned alot from you!

    JERRY was such a special man and was so important in many of our lives. I met Jerry when I was 16 years old as well working for him at a grocery store. Jerry taught us all how to be proper men in a business environment and how to serve the customers the right way. I carried his teachings into my business world, and cannot thank him enough for laying the foundation that helped me to succeed in my career. Jerry was a very special man andwill truly be missed!
