Jerry attended high schools in California and New Jersey before heading to Long Beach City College on a basketball scholarship. His talent on the court led to a scholarship at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, then known as Nevada Southern University where he was the starting point guard between 1963 and 1965. It was there that he met his first wife, Teri Dianne Hayes. Upon graduation, Jerry embarked upon a successful career in real estate development.

In 2014, he received the honor of the Lee Business School Alumnus of the Year. In 1999, Jerry met Deborah Lovitt Van Velzer. They married in 2004 and he became stepdad to Trey and Ryan. Jerry and Debbie spent their 15+ years of marriage traveling the globe, spending time with loved ones, and enjoying long days at the beach. Jerry enjoyed traveling, golf, and music, but his greatest joys in life were his three children Hilarie, Stefanie, and Jason and his six grandchildren Jaden, Avery, Kaylee, Max, Brendan, and Michael.
