Born on November 27, 1958, in Forest Hills, New York, Jerry was a beacon of kindness and generosity. His journey through life was marked by an insatiable thirst for knowledge and an unwavering commitment to his passions.

For over three decades, Jerry selflessly served the community as a chiropractor at Capone Chiropractic in Pickens, South Carolina, touching countless lives with his healing hands.

A true Renaissance man, Jerry's interests knew no bounds. He was a skilled gunsmith, a role he excelled in as the Program Director for Piedmont Technical College's Gunsmithing Program. His love for history, particularly the Civil and Revolutionary Wars, led him to reenactments and brought history to life.

His marksmanship skills were unparalleled, earning him the title of Pro-Marksman. As a Life Boy Scout, he instilled the values of honor and respect in countless young lives.

Jerry's love for the open road and the roar of a Harley Davidson motorcycle was known to all. He cherished the freedom of the ride and the camaraderie of fellow enthusiasts.
