  1. Jerry will be missed I will always will remember him and my dad discussing the Chicago Cubs and of course his jolly ranchers may he rest in peace

  2. So sorry ro hear of this. I worked with Jerry at the Social Service Department in the Skokie courthouse. He was always a nice guy. Such a surprise to have crossed paths again when I was neighbors with Beth! May he be reunited with his lovely Maureen and rest in peace.
