I had the pleasure of working with Jerry and I must say this gentle giant always had time for his friends and co-workers. We may have lost this dear friend but he won't be forgotten. Lynda, may God Bless!

Jerry was a man that we knew to be especially gentle, kind, and completely devoted to his wife Lynda. May peace be with him and Lynda always.

Jerry Coumelis was my cousin, and he was like another brother since his father was killed during WWII as a ship captain. Our father was like a father to Jerry, giving him guidance, taking him on our family vacations, and making him a close member of the Mathews family. I have made a Facebook photo album in tribute to Jerry at the following link: http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=4258831556117&set=a.4258831356112.2133897.1445744640&type=1&theater#!/media/set/?set=a.4258831356112.2133897.1445744640&type=1
