My heart goes out to Jackie and the whole family.
Jerry was one of a kind, and I had the wonderful opportunity to work and learn from him at International Truck and Engine. Jerry picks me, to join the equipment capital purchasing team, which he was wonderful at. He had a passion and integrity when it came to purchasing the right piece of equipment to fill a void on the manufacturing line. I am so honored to have that training, now, I thank him in my thoughts all of the time. He became a mentor to me and showed that sharing is a blessing. I have done that through out my career as I work with young Engineers. Even though he has left this world he has not left the people he touched and taught.
God bless you and keep you Jerry.

Novarita Family & Friends,
My heart goes out to y’all during this time. I hope that the memories and love you have can bring joy during sadness and hope during your loss. My favorite memory is how often your dad always asked about my weather and how excited he got for our hurricane seasons.
Love to all.
