My deepest condolences to Mr. Clingman's family. He truly was a wonderful man to work with. Every time I heard him speak I always leaned in to my co-worker and told her I feel like I am listening to Vin Scully talk. A soothing, relaxing, warm voice whom everyone loved to hear. May he rest in peace.

It was a pleasure working with Jerry at Care1st. With his calmness , compassion and knowledge, he always help to ease the complexity of the situations and help us visualize the direction clearly. He will be missed.

I worked with Jerry at Care1st and agree with the words of praise expressed by my former colleagues. Jerry was a smart guy, had his head screwed on right, was an island of peace in the storm of change, stress and chaos brought on by the sale of Care1st to Blue Shield. I looked forward to finding him alone in his office for a few minutes on most days, of closed door gab, jokes and jibes, and bemused wonder that we still continued to work there in the chaos of the Shield take- and makeover. It was the Care1st people, not the business, that brought and kept us there. And Jerry was an essential part of that glue. He will be missed.

Dear Clingman family,

I can't begin to tell you how sorry I was to hear that Jerry passed away. It was truly a shock to all of us that worked with him at Care1st, Promise and Blue Shield. Jerry was a great guy with a sharp wit and intellect, really funny, sincere, kind and a great listener with wonderful advice. I want you to know that Jerry was one of the people that had a great impact on me during my time working with him. A wonderful tribute to Jerry is not only did I feel that way about him, but so many others that got to work and spend time with him. Even now while the tears well up in my eyes, I can remember the great times that I and others had with him. Please accept my deepest condolences.

I had the pleasure of knowing Jerry for many years. He is one of the kindest person I've met. Always a gentleman and very thoughtful to everyone. The lessons he taught me will be remembered. I will miss him deeply and cherish our time together. My sincere condolences to the Clingan family.

Jerry was friendly, professional and funny . The work status meetings he conducted were filled with laughs. May God bless his soul!

I worked with Gerry at Care1st during turbulent times. We talked about 2 hours a week and he told me of his previous jobs and some of the lessons he had learned. I am 4 years younger than he was, so we had a lot in common. He helped me get through the craziness when there was chaos all around. Judi Lui, when she informed of his death, said, "he was one of a kind." I couldn't have said it better.

My sympathies to his family and friends.

He is my dad, my pops 😊 the best dad a son could have. He might not be here physically but is forever with all of who knew him and loved him because he was one heck of a good guy. I miss him I love him very much and know that I will see him again when it is my turn to go to heaven. When that day comes I know my pops I'll be there with open arms and give me a big hug and I will get to see my grandma and grandpa and all those that have gone on before me. I am very grateful to have a dad that loved me so much, more than I even knew. Rest in peace pops I'll see you when it's my time to enter into eternity where there will be complete wholeness no more pain no more sorrows no more anything negative that this temporary life has to offer but will for all eternity be completely whole, at peace, filled with love and joy and be able to share that with all of God's kids as one big family so I try not to cry cuz I know my dad wouldn't want me to be sad he would want me to remember all the good times we had and all the great times we will have when we get to see each other again and what a day that will be. You will be missed but not forgotten I am glad that you are in a better place now. 😊👍💪❤
