Jerry was a role model for me. He was a fellow that I truly admired. Jerry got me my role as a BGO for USNA 27 years ago and was a inspiration to me regarding the Naval service of which I once served and a fellow EDJ investment advisor almost 40 years ago. I was looking up his phone number so I could say hi and saw his obit. I will always remember Jerry as the "Skipper". I can almost hear "Anchors Aweigh".

Captain Jerry set an example for all of us to follow--first class in every respect! We were out of town at the time of the funeral, but we want the family to know how much we thought of him and that we are keeping them in our prayers.

Mr. Benson set a standard for character that I could only wish to have lived up to, but then that's why I respected him. And it's so much like him to have left the final gift of his earthly remains to help others. That's how you define a hero. I salute you sir and save me a spot at the O Club in Heaven.

Our thoughts and prayers are with all the Benson family. We share your loss and when we think of Jerry, remembering our friendship, the four greatest traits he reflected are loyalty, humility, integrity and love. Would that the world had more like him. Love, Sue and Rick

Our prayers are for the whole family-for strength, wisdom, peace and love in this difficult time. "Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye steadfast, unmovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know the your labor is not in vain in the Lord." (1 Corinthians 15:58 KJV)

A valiant battle fought, Jerry now is sailing with Captain of his Soul. He was a dear man that spoke softly but with assurance and confidence. We will miss him. Ann and Ralph
