Bible Emblem

Jerald Jerome Ethridge, affectionately known as Jerry, was born in Neptune, New Jersey on November 18, 1962 to Paul and Mary Ethridge. Jerry lived a life of love and service to the Lord and he passed away on March 15, 2018 at the Washington MedStar Hospital. Jerald made Washington DC his home and worshipped at the Greater Mt. Calvary Holy Church where he was an active member for more than twenty years. Singing is what brought Jerry much joy and he was able to live his purpose through his ministry in song as a member of the Sanctuary Choir and the Men's Choir until his illness prevented him from being active. Jerry's fight in faith was an inspiration, encouragement, testimony of God's grace to so many people. His love for God, family, and friends will continue to have a lasting impact on those who will miss him dearly.
