Jerry and I worked together for many years both at Aetna Life and Casualty as well as the agency system. He was always a real pleasure to work with. After my early retirement, we lost touch and I will forever regret that. Jerry’s presence on earth will be missed. But his job here was finished and he has earned his reward for a better place. My sincere condolences to Lynda and all of Jerry’s family.

I worked with Jerry on and off over many years. He was a good man, a great colleague and an even better friend.

Jerry's smile and quick wit lit up every room he entered. He was a joy to work with because of his easy manner and great competency. Even when we disagreed, you always knew it was never personal, that he was still your friend -- and it was my honor to call him that.

The world is a bit darker with his passing.
