“Teachers come and go
But every so often one comes along
that you'll always remember
One who makes learning an adventure
And who can still remember
What it's like to be young
And growing up.....
The kind that can make you
Want to be the very best you can be....
Someone you can really talk to,
Who really cares
What happens to you....
In my life, the role you played
Has been a priceless part
And you must know that special...
“My thoughts and prayers are with you all at this time of sorrow

“Mrs. Yerxa, Dawn, John, and Family,
I am quite saddened to hear of the passing of your husband and dad. Jerry was a caring, professional educator in every sense. He was a strong administrator who was "the glue" that kept Madison HS moving forward during a tough stretch in the late 70's and early 80's. I confided in Jerry alot during my 4 years in Madison. He offered me much guidance that without, I probably wouldn't have made it to the point of 40 years in education. ...
“So Sorry for the loss of a great man..Mr. Yerxa had the pleasure of meetin w/my mom & me a lot during my Senior Year at MHS and he made sure I graduated..lol..He had a special way with us students that made us totally respect him without him demanding it..I am happy that he was in my life and his legacy will live on for ever..To his family, remember, you now have an angel on your shoulder of the best kind..May God Bless you all and comfort in the days ahead.
“Dear Helen and family, You are all in our thoughts and prayers. We have such fond memories of our time in Madison and you folks. Sorry that we will still be in Florida and not able to attend the Memorial Service Jane & Don Sturgeon
