To Jerry's sons, family and associates at the office, My deepest condolences to you and yours. Indeed a great loss. I found Jerry to be one of most respectful and amicable advisors I've met in my life. He represented the interests of my passed Aunt and Uncle with open ear and only the best of intentions and advice for which they were very grateful. For the time they worked together, they, and I, considered Jerry not only a business associate, but a good friend. Don't believe that happens often in today's fast paced hit-and-run business world. Jerry's there at the gates with my relatives, hopefully paving the way for me when it's my turn to be judged prior to entry. I know I'll have a much rockier road. Rest in peace Jerry! I will indeed contribute to the CCA in Jerry's memory and the memory of my Aunt Irene and Uncle Joe. Most sincerely, George Baloga.
