My condolences to Marilyn and the family.
I knew Jerry as a school administrator in the Fridley School District. I was privileged to serve as a school board member for 9 years during the 1970's. Jerry was always prepared, thoughtful, hard working, friendly and had that smile that so many have commented on.
I also had the opportunity to help arrange for Jerry to receive the Communication and Leadership award given yearly to an outstanding member of the larger community in Minnesota. Jerry Seeman was truly an outstanding communicator and leader in every facet of his life.
There are not enough kudos to describe Jerry Seeman. He truly made the world a better place by his life. A lot has been said about his skills as a teacher and coach but not enough about his skills as Athletic Director and business administrator in the school system.
I pray that many of the other administrators, staff members, board members and students of the Fridley School system are aware of his passing. It was ironic that I only heard of it when watching the Packers/Lions game on TV.
May his memory continue to serve as a role model for many, for many years.
