Jerry was born on May 21st, 1967. He graduated from Columbia Heights High School in 1985. He and his young family moved to Coon Rapids, MN in 1992 where they participated in youth sports and many community programs and activities.
Jerry’s hobbies included fishing and playing golf, but his greatest joy was spending time with family, especially his five precious grandchildren. He told anyone within earshot about his wonderful family and their many adventures. He was a man who loved without reserve and gave of himself without hesitation.
