I met Jerry at work when I came here 1 1/2 years ago. He always watched out for me and made sure if i made a mistake he would fix it. I found him to be a kind and patient man. He will be missed by our LASD family and myself.

Jerry,

You have left a legacy here at Penske that will never be forgotten. You introduced many new people to our company and they learned from you how to become a good technician and the tricks to working on L.A. Sheriff’s vehicles. Many are indebted to you for your willingness to share your technical experience and your knowledge of our computer system.

I got to know you on a personal level after your health started to decline, and the pain increased. I learned about your goals and dreams, to include a desire to go on an Alaskan fishing trip, and a trip to the Philippians. You sadly shared this by describing your remaining life as being in a “No Win Situation.”

Our discussions also included what happens when this life is over, and I learned that you had surrendered your life to Jesus………

You Won Jerry!!

John 14:2 & 3

"In My Father's house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you.

I go to prepare a place for you.

"And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also.

Jerry and I car pooled for quite some time. During that time I got to know quite a bit about him and his life as well as his time in the Military. From the coffee at the 7-11 before heading to work to the griping about work on the long way home, good times.

If there is one good thing out of all this it is that you are no longer suffering or in pain, you are and will be missed.

I met Jerry back in 2004 and we became good friends working together for the same company.

Jerry was my mentor at work since he had a lot more experience in the process of conducting our daily work routines.

I later became his supervisor and after that I recommended him to my Lead Men.

I will forever miss Jerry. Great human being and Friend.
