My sincere condolences to Jerry&s family.
I worked with Jerry for a few months in 1969, and enjoyed visiting with him when I was able to join the WASK ""Old-timers"" for breakfast. He&ll be missed by all of us.

I worked for Jerry in the 70s at WASK. He was a great guy. A jewel on the radio. A jewel of guy.

The news is really unexpected, but I was asking about since i had being a long time that we did not see him at the Christos&s restaurant for breakfast or at Sam&s

My loosing a great friend like him is devastating and I hope your heart mends day by day considering the Christian resignation and the hope to be with him again.

From all my family, a sincere sympathy

I loved his Public Opinion show, even as a kid. I listened to it during the summer and when my mom would take me to orthodontist appointments and the like.

The topics brought up on any given day spurred on many a conversation and I learned to debate on various subjects and on many levels because of spark from Jerry?s show.

I called in as a six grader and was told to call back when I was a little older during the screening process. That didn?t deter me though, I would plead my opinion to one of my parents and if they agreed it had merit, they would call in and voice it for me on occasion.

One of the regulars, an older fellow that called himself Sage was of particular interest to me when he would call in and talk to Jerry. I say older, but who knows?everyone sounds older when you are eleven or twelve years old.

I thank this man in absentia, for hosting a program that helped me to develop a life long skill that has served me well.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Natalie and family,
I was so sad to hear of your dad&s passing. What a sweet man. He certainly touched a lot of lives (I can still hear his distinctive voice coming from the transister radio, my mom being a faithful listener). Thoughts and prayers for you and your family.
