Jerry was a wonderful/special being! I met Jerry through my brother Jeff. I knew Jerry as Jeff’s business partner and quirky friend. Over the last few years, I really got to know Jerry and the music business. It was during this time that we developed a different relationship, as we navigated Jeff’s illness and death. One of the hardest things I had to do was close Eagle Audio.... Jeff and Jerry’s life and love. It was very hard for Jerry to disassemble their life work. It broke my heart. Jerry wasn’t in the best of health, but he insisted on doing everything. Thanks to him, many people took pieces of history. In the end things worked out for him and I had a new special friend. Thank you Jerry! You are missed!
