Jerry spent well over 30 years coaching youth sports primarily for the Mt. Greenwood Colts Youth Organization, and later in Morris for the Morris Chiefs Youth Football Team. He was a lifelong fan of the "Fighting Irish", John Wayne and old westerns. Despite his gruff exterior, you could always find him listening to the melodic tunes of Peter, Paul & Mary.
He was one of a kind and will truly be missed!
