Jerry was a long time friend and associate of mine and my late husband, Coach Charles Maiorana. He and Judy gathered on occasion with us for baseball games and dinners. After moving to Lubbock, we visited Jerry and Judy on our driving trip to Colorado and again shared old memories. I always enjoyed reminiscing with Jerry over the phone after he became chair bound. Jerry was blessed with a sound mind and the gift of gab. I will remember Jerry with fondness! RIP Jerry!

My favorite Principal EVER!! He once told me after getting in trouble, “you’re on my irritated side, don’t get on my bad one”. I was part of his last graduating class 1995. Another time we showed up with a truck bed full of beer cans to a can drive, he looked at the head principal who said we couldn’t donate them and said “you never said what kind of cans they had to be”. He was an amazing man who loved his students. Hugs to his family!
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Grandpa, I will always miss you. But I have so many wonderful memories to hang on to. You were a role model, and a friend. Your guidance and love will carry me through to the end of my days. I love you Grandpa, until we meet again.

I was Jerry's secretary at Landrum Junior High. He was always telling jokes and stories. He made my job easier. I often wondered over the years what happened to Jerry and hoped he was well. He was a bright spot in my day. He is now in the loving arms of God who will comfort for all eternity. Rest well my friend.

Jerry was a great Brother-in-law and friend. He was always jolly and enjoyed people. That is what made him such a great friend. We will miss his country humor and endless stories. He definitely will be missed by the whole family. Dennis & Lynn
