Kathy, there are no words for how sorry I am. Even though we’ve never met I feel like we have been friends for a long time, I always be here for you to talk if you need to..

I worked with Jerry at DIT-MCO years ago. When Jerry walked into the room everything lit up. He was all smiles. Like Sharon said, Jerry was always the gentleman. He was quick to share a laugh and make a friend. His laughter and kindness will be remembered. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

Working as Ditmco sales rep in Brazil I met Jerry many times to visit local customers. He was able to go deeply technical as the equip we sell needed and at the same time be able to talk and communicate to the engineers and the people at the companies in a friendly and nice manner. The customers often regarded him as a personal friend and not just another supplier.
Being myself a little bit too technical I learned a lot how to communicate with the people with Jerry. Also while going to work we always had some free time to have some fun either visiting some places nearby the customers location or just talking about our countries during dinner at the hotel.
I just wanted to give a taste of the international friends Jerry was able to get.
My condolences to the family at this difficult time.
May his memory be alive among those who knew him.

My memories of Jerry are all full of fun and laughter from when we would visit his daughter, Jacqueline. He was a kind and generous host, even to a few loud kids—I will never forget his infectious laugh! My deepest condolences to everyone, and especially to my dear friend Jackie, for this painful and unexpected loss. May peace find you.

From the first time I met Jerry, He treated my family and I as if we were family. He always had a smile on his face and He was one of the kindest men I have ever met. He will be very much missed by His family and friends. Our love goes out to Kathy and to Jackie.

Words will never be able to express our love for our Dad, the joy and laughter he brought us all was amazing. He loved mom more than anything in this world, together their love was inspiring to everyone they were around. He was a perfect role model of a "Papa" for Abbey and Andrew, memories that will last forever more. He was a huge part of our family and is missed more than any of us can express.

Thank you Dad for loving us and being part of our lives!

I will miss him very much.

Jerry was always the sweet and fun guy to be around when he worked for DIT-MCO International in Kansas City. He always looked polished in his casual or business attire and I just enjoyed his polite conversation, but he could have a good time too! When our inside Sales & Marketing group were together in K.C. Jerry would tell some good jokes tastefully done when around me. His smile was delightful and I hope he had a full life in Florida which was where he wanted to stay.
My sincere sympathy to everyone in his family as you continue your journey in life without his love & guidance but honor his memory with love in your family.
