Jerome was an articulate gentleman, with a huge heart. He loved his family, and took the time to feed everyone he met. Rest in Paradise big brother.

I met Jerome at work. We became really good friends. We always had food competitions to see who cooked what the best. I always told him I didn't like his rice and why he eat rice all the dang time.. lol. I will miss him being my friend, my listening ear and my food buddy. There was a purpose you were brought into my life. Thank you my friend for every lesson taught and every memory. I'm missing you. Fly high my friend for now you are free.

My family was snowed in Colorado in one year and I wanted to connect with my girl. I met her and her husband Jerome and family. He cooked an amazing dinner, awesome food, and great conversation! He was warm, open, kind just meeting for the first time! What an amazing man.

We started our law enforcement careers together. Jerome, Irving and Lester. Always together, always there for each other. Irving and I were always trying to figure out a way to steal some of your lunch. I never laughed so much. You drug us through it though, instilling confidence in me, making sure I knew you believed in me, in all three of us. You would say, "We started this together and the three of us will finish together! Now you fools go home and study." I am who I am because of your friendship, your desire to make sure I succeeded and your love for me and my family. I miss you and I love you brother.

So sad to hear about your passing brother. Definitely will miss sharing our kids picture especially what we cooked for the holidays. I’ll have to make a huge cake of that cornbread you love in your memory. I will miss our New Years conversations. I will miss our conversations we have anytime we call each other. I love you and will dearly and truly miss you. To God be the Glory!

I remember Jerome well from Kindergarten. He had a kind personality and presence even when he was five that made an impression that still sticks all these years later. Condolences to his family.
