I worked with Jerry at Riverside University Health System for many years. We got a long instantly because of his very straightforward, honest personality and he's one of the few people that would laugh when I got sassy instead of taking it personal. Everyone knew when Jerry was working because he would be playing his music. I loved going and changing his music to some sort of pop song like Justin Bieber when he wasn't looking just to get one his "are you serious" looks. He was very kind hearted, he would bring cookies and put them in a bottom drawer in CT and then call upstairs to let me know they were there so every time I brought a patient down I had something to look forward too. And whenever the cookies ran out he would always bring more. It got to the point when I would just come down randomly to sit and complain about the shift and eat cookies with him and talk about crazy stories. I'm truly going to miss him a lot. I have a video of Jerry singing " I feel pretty " by the West Side Story when we we talking about musicals one day -it's one of my favorite videos because it shows how funny he was. I tried to upload it here but it only allows pics.

I worked with Jerry for 2 years and he was one of my first close friends at work. I would always change his heavy metal music for Disney music when he wasn’t looking and take my breaks with him. He would talk to me about his favorite books and we would go on rants together that ended with both of us laughing every time. I have missed him and will continue to miss him until we meet again. RIP Jerry.

Jerry was my first friend at the hospital. He was always so happy and down to earth. I can honestly say he was a real friend. R.I.P., buddy. I'll always have love for you, Jerry. Save a spot for me up there!

I worked the night shift with Jerry for 5 years. I got to know him well and we had plenty of meaningless conversations that helped get us through those long boring nights at work. He was a funny guy in his own way who loved talking about his niece. When Jerry was at work he played heavy metal on the radio and every once in a while you heard children's music coming from the speakers. That was him playing his niece's playlist. Typical Jerry, a hard case on the outside but a soft soul once you got to know him. Rest in Peace bud.
