Jerry R. “Jeric” Bautista, age 43, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, September 8th, 2020. He was born on August 25th, 1977, in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, to Jerry and Josefa (Palomata) Bautista.

He is survived by his mother, Josefa Bautista, sister, Jessica Bautista, as well as, his aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, and nephews.

Jerry spent his childhood in Rota, Spain, and Chesapeake, VA until he and his family moved to Atsugi, Japan in 1989. In 1992, they officially made Pensacola, FL their home.

He was a 1996 graduate of Escambia High School and graduated as a Pharmacy Technician in 2015 from Virginia College.

Jerry truly lived life to the fullest. He was always so happy and had such an infectious smile and laugh. He enjoyed cooking, spending time with family and friends, traveling, drawing, relaxing, binge-watching anime, and most of all, video games.

Jerry was a big kid with a big heart that had an uncanny ability to reach people in such a deep and positive way. He was truly a great son, brother, cousin, nephew, uncle, and friend. He will truly be missed by so many.

When I came back to work at the Youth Center Jerry was one of the first people to talk to me. He joked asking if I was one of the kids dropped off to hang out until my parents picked me up. That set the tone for our working relationship and our overall friendship. There have been certainly fun and memorable, especially working alongside Ms. Cindy Burns. You will be missed my friend. Till we meet again.
