Born and raised in Baltimore, Jerry attended Mount St. Joseph High School before enlisting in the Marine Corps during World War II. He fought on Tinian and Saipan, and was wounded by grenade shrapnel on the latter. After recuperation in Hawaii and California, he was honorably discharged and returned to Baltimore. He held a number of sales jobs before finding his niche in the insurance industry, finishing his long career as a regional manager for the Ohio Casualty Co., from which he retired in 1990. For the next 20 years, he worked part-time at Willow Springs Golf Course as a starter, which kept him close to one of his great recreational pursuits. Others were tennis, fishing, boating and horse racing. A lifelong Catholic, Jerry was a member of St. Mark’s Parish in Catonsville. He was predeceased by his sister Kathleen Lang, and brothers Jack, Gerald and Bernie.
