Judge Klein served from 1959-1990 as an active judge in the County Criminal Court. As a Senior Judge, he served from 1991-2007. For the last three years he was assigned to preside over Bond Court. He was known as "fast Jerry" to many of the attorneys who appeared before him because no one cleared a calendar faster or more efficiently then he did. Survived by Karen and Howard Gross.
