I am honestly broken. I never thought our friendship would be what it is today, when I first met you, you were awkward Jerald. Now you’re one of my favorite humans on earth, you’re my happy place, my candy maker partner in crime, my trustworthy friend. I’m hurting so much, especially since now when I walk into work and I don’t see your physical presence. We always switch our schedules around to work together and I’d always park in the same lot as you so we can go home at the same time. You were always the first person I’d look for in a kitchen to say hi to and give a hug, it was my normal routine. Even though I met you at work, you’re more than just a coworker, you are my friend, and I feel like we were always meant to cross paths. It was meant for heartless, stubborn me to meet a wonderful guy like you. You didn’t have to tell me jokes or sing to me to make me laugh or like you. Your aura was heartwarming and contagious. You’re the light at the end of my dark tunnel, no matter what you did, you always found a way to make me smile without even trying and we would always have a good time together. There is not a day that goes by that I stop thinking about you. The memories we created are a blessing, and everything I do, it reminds me of you. It can be a meme, a catchphrase, habitual things we did at work, adventures, places we ate, or words that we exchanged. I know your watching over me, I feel your spirit with me all the time. You’re irreplaceable and we will forever be the “dream team” I will carry on your character forever. Words can’t explain how blessed I am to have such a wonderful guy like you in my life. Everything is safe with me. I’m hurting, feeling broken and lost on a daily basis. I miss you so much and I’m sad I lost my other half. I know you’re in heaven smiling down on on us, eating whatever you what, on the islands of Hawaii. I’m honored that you trusted me and allow me to enter your life.

Luv ur “medium ghetto” friend <3

You were one of my best friends.
It was so surreal when I found out about you being gone. I literally was just talking to you that Saturday night.
And I lost it. I cried and I cried.
He couldn’t be gone. He was so kind. And so nice. And he was the first friend I made at Disney. We would go eat dinner and then go watch movies at the theater. We planned theme park days. We *were* planning a theme park day. We were gonna go to six flags. Or Knott's.
We had plans. He couldn’t be gone! We still have a list of movies to watch! The list of “Movies Jerald needs to watch”. He was one of my best friends.
And he’s gone.
And I cried. And I cried.
I saw all the Facebook post people were making.
Everyone posting on his page minutes and hours later. All day and night.
But I had started messaging him on messenger. Saying I was sorry I didn’t reply back Saturday night. I was sorry we didn’t get to hang out. I was sorry we didn’t watch Spirited Away. Saying I would miss his jokes. His smile. His goofiness. I would miss my best friend.
When I had gotten home, out in the table from the night before, was my wand from Universals. The wand I bought with Jerald. We bought our wands together. And I remember going around to every spell location and casting the spells with our wands. And I grabbed my wand and held it tight to me as I remembered when me and Jerald went to universals. We bought season passes. Saying we’d come back. We ate together. We went on rides and the studio tour. We went on the Simpson ride.
And I held on to my wand box and cried.
It’s still so surreal to me. I miss my friend.
But I know he wouldn’t want us to be sad. He wouldn’t us to cry. If he could he would tell us a joke right now to make us laugh, and that’s a comforting thought to me.

I cannot find the words to say. I loved you like a little brother and would enjoy every time we saw each other. I will forever have a void in my heart that could never be filled, because you were one of a kind. I will always remember the so many great times we had together: Disneyland,Vegas, friend bbqs,game nights, etc..
I'm sad to know my daughter will only know you from photos and my stories of you. I love you forever, and condolences to your family because I know they miss you dearly I cannot imagine losing a child or a brother. Rest in peace jerald.

From playing cards on the school lunch table as 12 year olds to you, me and Richie being the three amigos in our 20's. We've been through many ups and downs and kept each other laughing through it all. My favorite memory is when you, me, Richie, Jon, Alex and Stacey went to Disneyland and we rode Space Mountain like 50 times. I can't hear a pun without thinking about you now. I'm gonna miss you and will always remember all of our crazy adventures. R.I.P. Jerald. You will always be with us.

It saddens me to see a good person go. While life has a plan for us Jerald's and I have been out of contact for a few years. What I do remember is meeting him in high school he was always very polite and kind to everyone. Then we both ended up going to college together we became really good friends always gaming and eating. It is sad to be gone at such a young age but I know the impact that he has left wall continue in so many hearts.

Rest in peace.

I will always remeber the first day you talked to me. I was on my break on my first day after training. I knew no one. I was sitting alone trying to not be stressed eith my new job. You sat down and just stared at me awkwardly, then finally said "it looks like someone lost their focus" i was super confused. You then proceeded to show me this picture of a ford focus in a lake. I started laughing so hard and told you how dumb that was. But it was definitely an ice breaker.
Im still in disbelief. It hits me hard everytime im driving to work. I will always cherish every memory i made with you. I love you always jerald. Work will never be the same.💔

I don’t even know what to really say. I’m truly heart broken. I remember the time when we came over to your place and you played with my son to keep him entertained. You’re heart is gold. You’re the most caring beautiful person ever. In another time we will meet again. I have truly been blessed to have known you. May you Rest In Peace.

You were my oldest friend. Its hard to comprehend your passing. I remember us singing LinkenPark in Marys van every morning before school. I remeber playing in the field with you in 5 grade. You were the one person who loved Zelda as much as i did. I wish i had more time with you. I will never forget you!

I’m shocked to learn that the world lost one of the gentlest, funniest and purest souls I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing. Jerald and I met in high school, sophomore year and over the years we’ve kept in contact thanks to the power of social media. He was kind of shy but once he opened up he was genuinely one of the funniest people I knew. He will be missed by everyone who saw his light. I’m so sorry for his loss..
