    I met Jerry initially when launching our latest product and got to know him better in his most recent role with AstraZeneca as we were on the same team. He was quite the gentleman and very dedicated to his work. He spoke often of his family and was extremely proud of his children. Our team will miss you Jerry!

    I only worked with him a few short years, but know that he was beloved by all who had the pleasure to know him. He spoke about astronomy a lot and I imagine he’s there among the stars now, smiling down on us all. I’ll miss you Jerry!

    I have known Jerry for many, many years. No one was more of a gentleman than Jerry. He was incredibly well liked. Jerry was charismatic, smart and super entertaining. We had so many laughs at work meetings in seemed as though we were not even at work. What a great man! He will be missed!!
