Jerry was an amazing son, brother, and friend. He never met a stranger, he was full of life and anyone who met him will tell you he had an infectious sense of humor. He had a heart of gold that was more tender than most realized and a love for animals especially his dog Baby. Baby was his sidekick wherever Jerry went. Jerry loved his family deeply especially his mom and dad. They were always his rock in troubled times and good times. He struggled with a fear of disappointing others and felt he never measured up. If only he realized how deeply he was loved, how deeply he was cared for and truly amazing he was. He touched more people in his short life than most of us do in a lifetime. He will be deeply missed by all who knew him.
Services will be Wednesday at 2 pm from the chapel of Shawn Chapman Funeral Home with Pastor Mitchell Gaston officiating. The family will receive friends at the funeral home Wednesday from 1 pm till the funeral hour.
