Jerry was an amazing son, brother, and friend.

Jerry loved his family deeply especially his mom and dad. They were always his rock in troubled times and good times. He struggled with a fear of disappointing others and felt he never measured up. If only he realized how deeply he was loved, how deeply he was cared for and truly amazing he was. He touched more people in his short life than most of us do in a lifetime. He will be deeply missed by all who knew him.
