Marilyn and I worked together for a number of years at the agency we both served proudly. During that time I had many opportunities to speak with Jerry over the phone.

He was always congenial and exhibited a great sense of humor and a love of family in our conversations.

My deepest sympathy to Marilyn and to Jerry's extended family.
