ERIC , YOU ARE THE MOST LOVELY MAN. I HAVE TRUELY LOVED THE TIME SPENT WITH YOU. UNTIL WE MEET AGAIN SOME SUNNY DAY . I WILL LOOK AFTER YOUR BOY THE BEST I CAN. LOVE YOU ERIC XXXXXX

I attended Rosehill College from 1978-1982 and have very fond memories of my years there.
Mr Jerkovich - Sir, I can't call him Eric because one of the things he installed in all of us was respect for your peers.
He seemed to know nearly all of his pupils by their name and at the end of the school day would stand at the top gate on Edinburgh Avenue and would say goodbye to us. He also made sure that we wore our uniforms with pride, especially the boys with their socks being pulled...

An inspirational man that many of us owe more to than we will ever know. His influence, his presence and his legacy, will live on, through us all.

JERKOVICH, Eric MBE. Loving partner of Jean. A very special companion in their twlight years. Very fond member of the Jensen family, Mark, Kaye, Paula, and Cathryn and families. Thanks for being there for mum Eric, we all love you for it. Rest in peace.
