Sister Aimee Koonmen and The Board and Staff of Bethany House

Jerry was a good friend to Bethany and to many of us. He had grown up in Roosevelt and loved the little town – wanting to do something to help Roosevelt, he researched organizations that are located there and who, as he said, “make a real difference.” He chose Bethany House several year ago as his charity of choice and was very active and involved in helping Bethany to fulfill its Mission.
Jerry was our Honoree at Bethany’s Golf Outing in 2013 and is a member of Bethany’s Knights of Hospitality. Jerry had retired a few months ago and his health had improved significantly without the stress of his executive job. He and his wife Denise were packing to move to Florida within a few weeks when God called Jerry home.
He will be greatly missed and never forgotten. Bethany House has planted three trees in Israel in his memory – one for the blessing he has been to his family; one for the blessing he has been to his friends; and one for the blessing he has been to the homeless women and children of Bethany House.

We went to elementary school. Got French fries at a local deli for 25 cents. We and played for 30 minutes then went into Hewbrew school.
I grew up with Jerry. We shaped each other’s lives. We played terrible music together but hey, we were competing with the Monkeys.
His parents were the best. Always generous with a smile.
I cannot get the thought out of my head that I will not see my old friend in oct or again.
This man, my friend and my brother had the heart the size of Texas. He only wanted everyone to be HAPPY.
So to my friend it was a stupendous life and to my brother , I love you and miss you and I will see you again, one day.

I’m so sorry to here of Jerry’s passing. I met him on my first job at De Krig advertising. I learned so much at this studio from Jerry. He also helped me find my second job at Harold Katz advertising. I did some freelance work for him when he first started working at Gluck. I lost touch with him but never forgot the good person he was and the help I got from him when I first started in the advertising field. God Bless you and your family, you will be missed
