Jerry’s Story

To Our Dear Friends and Loved Ones,

Welcome to CaringBridge. We've created this website to keep you up-to-date about Jerry's condition. Get started by reading the introduction to our website, My Story.

Visit often to read the latest journal entries, visit the photo gallery, and write us a note in our guestbook.



As most of you know, Jerry has had a long battle with cancer.  He was originally diagnosed in 2003 with prostate cancer.  He subsequently underwent treatment for recurrent cancer and lymphoma and radiation therapy.

Unfortunately, Jerry experienced significant side effects from the radiation therapy, which has presented ongoing health challenges. 

On Monday April 5th, Jerry had surgery, during which there were complications.  Due to the complications and significant infection, Jerry's condition has deteriorated rapidly.  On Thursday April 8th, hospice was brought in.  On Sunday April 11th, he was transferred to the Hope Hospice Home.  Jerry is no longer responsive, but we are keeping him comfortable.

Thank you for all of your calls and prayers.  We appreciate your thoughts and concern.  We will continue to use this site to keep you updated.
