This seems unreal. Jerry was my CPA, trusted advisor, friend, and former boss. He was always there for me and mine. He was very understanding, and always went above and beyond to help. He will be so missed.

I am so sorry to hear this sad news. I worked for Jerry several years ago and learned so much from him. I will always remember how supportive he was when I lost my son. Such a loving and caring person. He will be missed.

I worked with Jerry for several years and he taught me so much! He was always patient, and incredibly dedicated to his clients. I remember getting his call just after Hurricane Katrina -- he was so excited the lights were on and we could get back to work!

Jerry kept in touch with me for years, and I'm so grateful I had the opportunity to thank him for all his kindness and encouragement. He was truly one-of-a-kind, and I am holding his family and friends in my heart.
