Personal

Jerry enjoys jogging – he actually finished ahead of Jim Fixx in his first marathon. He golfs, fishes and once caught a 30-pound Atlantic salmon. Unfortunately has no photos of this amazing catch, but did take advantage of the photo opp when, on another occasion, he caught a 20-pound salmon. Generally speaking, Jerry simply loves the outdoors.
