    I’m so saddened to learn of this. I worked with Jerry for nearly 30 years at KETV, and was regularly lifted up by his humor, and his zest for life. I hadn’t seen or spoken to him for many years, but I know that, for all who knew and were close to him, Jerry will be deeply missed. My heartfelt condolences to all who knew and loved him.
