Jerry was my brother-in-law. A long time ago, but I still consider him as such. I worked at Cozy Bootery with him and we always got a long with him! How could you NOT like Jerry??? May he rest in peace and my sympathies to all of the Weitzel Family.

Hilarious (usually unintentionally!), incredibly generous, always memorable, and profoundly impactful. We were all blessed beyond measure to have known so great a man. Rest in peace, Jearbear.

I have so many memories growing up, being at the Weitzel house. Jearbear was always there, joking and laughing with us. And giving us a hard time! Lovingly, of course. He was always a special person in my life, and will truly be missed. Love and prayers with all of you during this difficult time.
