We know Jerry through the Family Readiness Group. It was an honor to serve under his leadership. One of the kindest and most honorable people I have ever known. He will truly be missed. Our prayers are with the Mickey and the family during this time. Craig & Laura Robertson

Jerry was my cousin. Our Mothers were sisters. I remember we were always together as a family at Christmas, Easter,etc. I have wonderful memories of us all playing together in Berwyn and Stickney. All of us grew up and moved to different areas and the contacts became fewer but my love for him did not. I love you Jerry. Liz
