    Jerry and I shared the fact that we were the only two males in a group of mostly woman 1st cousins! I’ve got this Jerry. My thoughts and prayers go out to the family. Love, Billy Norris

    Eileen, I’m so terribly sorry to hear about the loss of my classmate, Jerry. I only knew him for my 2 years at SAS, but remember him as a fine person and a good athlete. Respectfully, John Gustin
