    I am so sorry for your lost. I had the privilege of getting to know him when I worked at Lifetime. He was such a sweet man, full of love. He will be deeply missed!

    My heart is aching for you and your family. I first met Jerry when he went to school with my sister. I worked for Lifetime and him and I were in the same room. All Jerry ever wanted is to be loved…and that’s what we did…RIP Jerry, you will be missed!!

    I have known Jerry since we were kids, since his parents and mine, Butch and Alice Kuhn, were close friends.I renewed my friendship with Jerry when my mom and his lived at Fleming Point and we had dinner together several times. He was a loving and sweet man, and he will be missed.
