A few years later, Jerry became a project supervisor for Rich Picerno Builders and Giordano Contracting, both in Kenilworth, New Jersey. He stayed with these companies for ten years until he retired five years ago.
Jerry was a graduate of the Elizabeth High School in Elizabeth, New Jersey. Following high school, Jerry enlisted in the U.S. Air Force and he served his county during the Vietnam War.
