    Never forget him! He came to my crew in 1971 relieving reg Rdm as I was working foreman cleaning switches in GBay with my crew. He said “ hey your crew has got this…cmon I’ll buy you a cup of coffee”. We talked for half an hour and I never forgot that. They don’t come any better than that! Rest In Peace Jerry!

    Jerry was a foreman on my territory for 18 years. I shared an office with him for many of those years. One thing about jerry was he treated everyone the same way. He would bend over backwards to help you. In the 18 years of knowing jerry I don’t ever remember him getting mad at anyone. When I came down from Green Bay, I was a green horn. A rookie if you will. I learned a lot from him. I’ll never forget working with you. R. I. P. Jerry.

    I am very sorry to hear of Jerry’s passing. I worked the same segment of track as he did out of Sturtevant. We sat across from each other at our desks. From 1994 until his retirement, though I worked with him before that also.
    Jerry was a salt of the earth guy.
    We did some fine track work together. He had my respect.
    I pray for God to give his peace and solace to his family, and friends.
    Thanks for the good times and laughs Jerry.
