Condolences to Karen and the rest of Jere's family on his passing. I worked with Jere in the Real Estate business on Marco for over 15 years. He was a wonderful friend who was wise in his ways and never failed to offer advice when someone
needed help. I will miss him and his advice. Happy Trails Jere.

Jere was my really good friend for many many years and while I'll miss him, I know that he had a good life and a loving wife. Karen made his last years truly happy and he was so contented out there on their property where he could watch the wildlife, putter in his barn, and stop down on Marco for lunch :-) RIP, Jere....see you when I get there!
