Not sure what to say?

I must be the last to find out about everything. My condolences to the Seeman family. Cancer is a terrible disease, and look forward to its permanent eradication someday SOON I hope. While I never met Jerry, I always remember his trademark smiley when he turned on his mic on tv to announce penalties during an NFL game. Got to see him in person officiate in Houston in 1990 for Oilers vs Jets. Fun to watch him. Dad nicknamed him "smiley" because of his trademark smile. Can't believe I...

Good After Jerry this is Amar Smith guess what you and Sid Semon are finally together again forever in heaven so now you are finally reunited with each other RIP Jerry and Sid

He was an amazing man and a terrific calculus teacher in La Crosse, Wis. Will never forget him. Central High School Class of '64. Patricia Hansen El Cajon, Ca.

Dear Marilyn and Family,
We just learned of Jerry's death and are deeply sadded by the news. We shared many good times golfing at Sunrise Country Club. He gave us some good pointers in the sport. Our deepest sympathy to you.

Simply the best BEST Football and Basketball Official I ever saw at any level.

I have many wonderful memories of "Mr. Seeman", our trig/calculus teacher in my senior year at Fridley High. My brother Bob (class of 1968) and I got a kick out of telling friends that "the ref you see on tv was my high school teacher/coach." We would drag out the yearbooks to make them believers. I was so sorry to read about his passing, and want to extend my thoughts and prayers to his family and friends.

Sorry for your loss Marilyn (Mike, Jon, Jeff and extended family).
I interviewed Jerry for Q&A when he was director of NFL officials while I attended Winona State University in the early '90s. Class guy all the way! I can still see him in hallways at Fridley High School prior to and post NFL games he officiated. He always had his trademark smile.

"Each man's life touches so many other lives. When he isn't around he leaves an awful hole, doesn't he?", quoted from It's a Wonderful Life. It is so obvious that Mr. Seeman did just that. I am sure you are proud of what a wonderful man he was and of how many lives he touched. I am so sorry for your loss.
