The short time I spent with Jerry was very enjoyable. His quick wit and smart aleckie (sp) attitude always put a smile on my face. My absolute favorite memory of Jerry was the day I was struggling to write the room numbers backwards on the windows. Without blinking, Jerry said "just turn around dummy". Need I say more! I knew his daughter Jerry from when I worked with her at Ridgemont and I am glad that I had the chance to tell her dad what a wonderful person he had raised. Through his time at Hardin Hills I got to meet the rest of his family and found all of his children to be outstanding people. Lastly, I so much enjoyed talking to his wife, what a sincere and caring person. To you all, thank you for your friendship and my heart goes out to each one of you.
Sincerely,
Jeff Dorsey
