Jerry was from Detroit, Michigan attending Denby High School, and then received his degree from Lawrence Institute of Technology with a Bachelor of Science in Civil Engineering. His career spanned several decades with The Kopper’s Company which began in Detroit, then Smyrna, and finally Pittsburgh. He later moved to Ft. Lauderdale, Florida and began working with Roof Structures Inc. After a rewarding career in the corporate world, Jerry ventured out on his own with the opening of Timber Systems, Omega Engineering, and Construction Material Specialties. And finally, his most recent endeavor, Concrete Preservation Systems, where he was a senior Consultant for Aquron Corporation International. He had recently retired in March 2017.
Jerry’s most cherished accomplishments, more importantly to him, were his love for God and family. He was a devoted husband to Carrol for 57 years, and the father of five wonderful children, that he was extremely proud of. He was an active member at each church he attended, where he assumed many leadership roles, at different levels of service. God used him in a profound way, were he could reach others and lead them to a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. He will be greatly missed by all those who knew him. But we rejoice that we will see him again in heaven.
