Jerry was as unpretentious a person that I have had the privilege of knowing, both professionally and socially. Witty, entertaining, engaging, and always thoughtful. It was an absolute pleasure to be in his company, which for me was limited, but always enjoyable. I extend my most sincere condolences to his family and friends as his passing will certainly impact everyone who knew him. May we all in some way find solace in the fact that the life he lived touched us all in some profound and memorable way. Rest in Peace Jerry, we will certainly miss you!
