He has recently been enjoying retirement by writing books and helping produce various television shows. Jerry was a loving father, friend, teacher, talented musician, songwriter, lover of the outdoors and his favorite thing on planet earth was auto racing of any kind. Jerry had a huge heart and easily made new friends everywhere he went. Jerry is survived by his mother Lula, father Kenneth, brother David, mother of their children Elizabeth (Lisa), three children Alexandra, Nicholas and Jeremy (Angela), grandchildren Maximus, Spencer, Luke and Jett and countless amazing friends.

Having lived in Tampa for forty years, I felt like I knew Jerry. Of course, I didn't, but he was one of those TV personalities that felt like family. I do know that 62 is far too young. My deepest condolences to Jerry's friends and family.
