Jere and I were both Braves fans, we 'talked baseball' every day I saw him. He was a great friend and I know he loved his family and cared about all of us in the building. He will be missed and in our prayers.

Dear family,
Thank you for sharing Jere with us here at 1117 Perimeter Center West.
Jere was the BEST!

I arrived at work this morning, after having been off a week due to a family medical emergency, and Jere did not greet me. I thought to myself - Darn, Jere must be off today. I had a sadness come over me since he wasn't there to greet me. It wasn't until I arrived in my office did I learn of his passing. I was overwhelmed with sadness!

I have worked in this building for almost two years and from the first day, Jere welcomed me everyday he was there. He asked my name and even though he knew my name, he would great me with "Good Morning, Pretty Lady!" (Even, if he was on the phone checking on his wife!) Now, I know he used that term for others, but he always started my day off with a smile when I entered those doors.

I enjoyed speaking with him and discussing family, Braves, Falcons and my love of Georgia football. I am very grateful that my path crossed Jere's.
I will miss him but was blessed for knowing him.

Jere was a true gentleman. I've worked at 1117 for five years, and being greeted by Jere as I came through the front door was part of my morning routine. In addition, we taught dozens of international students here at Troy University, and Jere always remembered their names, greeted them as they arrived, and made "small talk" with them. This helped their English skills and increased their self-confidence. One holiday, when Troy was closed but Jere was at 1117, an international student arrived in the U.S. without our knowledge; the student came directly to 1117 from the airport, only to discover that no one was there except Jere. Jere took the poor guy under his wing, notified us of his arrival, and then drove him to a nearby hotel so the student would have a place to stay for the night. Jere Hatfield went above and beyond the call of duty at all times. He was a great guy who was loved by all.

I thank God for just getting to know Jere. I will miss seeing him in the hallway and the security desk at the 1117 building. May the Lord continue to Bless his family Because truly I do know that earth has no sorrow that Heaven cannot heal.
