He was a great cook, just like his mom, and loved making meals for his family; “the spicier the better” he always said.  Jerry also loved camping, boating, and traveling.  His favorite past times were watching Leah play basketball and jamming out to music in his Mustang with Adrianna.  It was always said that he was able to fix anything. Jerry also loved his dog, Carl.  Jerry was sprinkler fitter for Local 281 with S.J. Fire, however, he also DJed for many years.  Jerry will be missed dearly.
