He was educated in Itawamba County Schools in Fulton, Miss. He was a licensed contractor and was employed with F.L. Crane and Sons of Fulton, Miss., for many years before becoming self employed and moving to Blytheville in October of 1999.

Jerry served faithfully as a deacon, licensed and ordained minister, and superintendent of Sunday school. He was a faithful leader in the household of faith until he transitioned. Jerry never met a stranger; his warm smile (showing that gold tooth) and hearty laughter could melt the coldest hearts. He was generous with his money as well as his time and helping those at need. You may have known him as Pee-Wee, House Man, Red, or J.T., but in all your knowing...know him as a devout follower of his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
