I am very thankful to have known and worked with Jerry. I worked for Jerry for a couple of years in Hendrickson Service and we shared several sea stories from the Navy. Jerry taught me a ton about how to handle difficult situations. I will miss his smiles, hugs and occasional kicks in the backside. I am grateful for the time we spent together but am sad that there will not be more.
Jerry loved his family and I recall him telling me how much he enjoyed his daughter's wedding. Our discussion changed my outlook on my daughter's wedding from dread to enjoyment. I can't say enough, a great boss, a great patriot, a great man.
