Growing up, Jerry was my closest family friend, my godbrother. Over the years, we spent great times together, up and down the east coast. For me, Jerry was not simply about academia and business. He was a great story teller, orator, comedian and dancer. He gave good counsel and received it as well. He made life exciting by being a major part of mine. I look forward to seeing you again, my brother, in Eternity. You fought a good fight!
