Jerry Watson was the beloved husband of Jill and father of three children, Jay of Austin, TX, JT of Houston, TX and Jenna of Marble Falls, TX. He was the brother of Cindy Winters of Seymour, TN, Cheri Brown of Vanderpool, TX, and Tommy Watson of Boerne, TX and son of Catherine Droby Watson of Marble Falls, TX. He is preceded in death by his father, Lloyd Watson.

Jerry attended Southwest Texas University where he received a bachelor’s degree in business administration. He then rushed the prestigious fraternity of Phi Delta Theta in the Fall of ’79 where he later served as both the chapter president and a short stint as Council President of the university’s IFC.

After college, Jerry purchased a home on lake LBJ in 1988 where he fell in love with the small town of Marble Falls. After many summers on the lake, he eventually moved his family within the Marble Falls city limits where he jumped right into serving his community. Jerry dedicated over 20 years volunteer coaching youth sports, not only for his three children, but also many generations to follow. Nothing put a bigger smile on his face than watching and influencing the youth around him, on and off the field.

Jerry had a tremendous impact on many young men and women. Anyone who knew him benefited from his fun-loving, decent, kind and helpful ways. Jerry is remembered for his contagious laugh, outgoing personality, and always-welcoming home. He is loved and mourned by many.

So sorry to learn of Jerry's passing. We were good friends in college and as young adults. We was a handsome and fun fellow with a good heart. I always enjoyed being around him. He was a disciplined and professional salesman. I am sure that served him well in his career endeavors. We lost frequent contact over the years but it was always clear how much he loved his family. I recall how close he was with his parents and later proud of his own family.
Rest in peace old friend.

Jerry Watson was the coolest guy all through school. I remember meeting him on the bus in 5th grade. He was trying to protect me from the rain pouring into through the window. It was a funny scene...him leaning up behind me trying to close the window and the water was getting everywhere! Such a nice guy! I don’t think I ever stopped having a crush on Jerry after that meeting! Then we were in home room together and he was always so very kind to me. Jerry was a treasure to everyone and I know he will be missed so much.
Rest In Peace and God Bless.

The Woodmansee Family wants to express our deepest sympathy and condolences to the Watson Family. Jerry was a man's man. He lived life with gusto and he gave to us all the greatest of gifts, and that was himself. He was the ultimate competitor. This also made him the ultimate motivator. He touched the lives of all he met. His great laughter, quick wit and huge contagious smile leaps into your mind whenever you hear his name. I was blessed to coach with Jerry and challenged to coach against Jerry in youth sports. I am proud to call him friend. Jerry was a man of character, of substance and he just loved life. Jerry strived to make the lives of others better. Jill our hearts go out to you. You together with this wondrous man by your side, both positively impacted the Buda/Kyle Community and the Marble Falls Community. Jerry lived life big and will always be remembered with a smile. His legacy is sure to live on through all the many lives he has touched in each aspect of his life.

Jerry was a wonderful gentleman, and I will miss his infectious energy and positivity. One of his Greatest character traits was his selfless commitment to others on many levels. There were times during my day when I needed a calm voice or his perspective, I would Skype Jerry and he would always stop what he was doing to be there for me, even though it might not have been that urgent in the grand scheme of things. It was important to me, therefore important to him. Whether it was Sunday morning, or after hours, I could always count on Jerry being there to talk to. His commitment to others and making everyone’s voice feel important was a true specialty of his ability to connect with people. I will always be reminded to be a better friend, co-worker, believer in others and that you can work hard and not take life so seriously because of Jerry. I will miss him and will always remember the week we spent together at Arena Towers together.

To the Watson Family,

Thank you for sharing your husband and father with us at Boxer Property. We were truly spoiled to have so much of Jerry’s time. It is a special gift that will forever be cherished.

My name is April Darner, and I had the privilege to have Jerry as my Sales Manager for two years at Boxer Property, as a Leasing Agent.

Jerry naturally lit up the room with his warmth and big “HEEEELLLLLLLLLOOOO”. He loved to be the MC on the mic at our monthly leasing meeting. I looked forward to his musical power point presentations with the Heavy Hitters.

Jerry Watson made Boxer Property a special place to work at. He knew how to bring everyone together and put a smile on your face. He had a gift of connecting easily with others and you always felt seen and acknowledged by him in a room.

Jerry was a great Sales Manager. He continually worked with us to improve our skills, didn’t matter if you were a rookie or veteran. He never gave-up on us.

The thing I enjoyed most about spending time with Jerry was getting to know him. He loved to talk about his family, and I enjoyed our conversations about our faith. He told me about his upbringing in the church and how his Dad was a preacher. He brought that light to Boxer and I want to thank him for that.

Jerry believed in me, which helped me in turn believe in myself. He made a positive impact on my life and I am forever grateful to have met him on this journey. You will be missed Jerry.

I had the pleasure of working for Jerry twice. Once at the class ring company many years ago. And then after he joined Apple Inc. and I was working elsewhere for about two years - he called and said, " Come work for me again!" How could I resist. Anyone who has the Jerry for a boss or co-worker knows that his smile , his energy were just to good to pass up. Over the years our paths drifted then crossed again. In one afternoon of catching up it was like we never apart. His light was bright and will be missed. To Jill and the family our hearts and prayers are with you all.

HUSTLE, FOCUS, POSITIVE, Repeat.. There was always a Positive vibe and advice in Jerry’s words. He was such a great mentor, who genuinely cared about ones triumphs like they were his. The interactive knowledge he shared and his charismatic approach will forever be his legacy. My most sincere condolences to his family.

Rest In Peace Jerry Watson!

I was introduced to Jerry by mutual friends and remember thinking after I first met him, this guy has made me laugh about five times in ten minutes.

Shortly after we met, and by sheer coincidence, I was with the small group of people that went to Galveston when Jerry and Jill first met. It was so entertaining, and encouraging for that matter, to see how smitten Jerry was with Jill. After that blind date, there wasn’t any question in my mind about where their relationship was headed.

Maybe 25 years +/- later, I was walking out of a business event and Jerry was standing in the lobby. We spoke for about 30 minutes. He showed me pictures of his family. I showed him pictures of mine. Listening to Jerry talk about his family was a gift to me.

I know Jerry had many closer friends. In the limited time I was around him, he never made me feel anything less than the best of friends. That seems to be the way he was with everyone.

May God’s grace, love and healing be with the Watson family.

Jerry was possibly the biggest positive influence on my grandsons lives coaching them in little league while I was in the process of adopting them. Sincerest condolences to his family. Jerry was an angel on earth way before he became an angel in heaven .

Permission to speak freely ... permission granted. The infamous Jerry phrase that will forever live in my mind. Jerry was a one of a kind guy. He was not only a mentor to me at work but a role model and friend. We shared so many good times together, he was my work “person” and I miss him. Not a workday went by that I didn’t in some way converse with Jerry. Jerry pushed me to be excellent and for that I will be forever grateful. My entire family is praying with the Watson family and for all affected from this huge loss. Jerry will forever be in my heart and mind and I will cherish all the memories we had.

Rest In Peace Jerry.
