CandleI have fond memories of my cousin Jerry. I remember being a kid and he and his sisters would be playing records over and over in the house. i always thought that was so cool. i remember him as a young person, working, and he had a new car! It was a beautiful aqua mercury. He was always the same over the years. I will miss him. Love, Susie

I had the pleasure of working with Jerry at Levi Strauss for 13 years. Such a sweet, funny, helpful man who always had a kind word or funny story to share. Rest in peace! Angie Pardue Bearden
