Biographical
Personal (gender, age, marital status, spouse's name and age, children's name and ages, home town, current residence)

A native of Hagerstown, Maryland, Jerry spent his life searching for a place to help. In 1965, Jerry married his college sweetheart Alice, since then the two of them have always focused their efforts on making their community a better place to live and raise a family. Their four children are now grown, and Jerry likes to spend his spare time spoiling his nine grandchildren and teaching them the true values of helping those in need.

Profession (professional and work experience outside politics)

Jerry has served as pastor to United Church of Christ congregations in Maryland, New Jersey and Virginia. And since moving to Northern Virginia in 1996, he started and grew a new congregation right here in Centreville. In addition, he served for seven years as the Associate Conference Minister in the Central Atlantic region, where he supported 41 separate churches and their pastors. But working as a local pastor was only the beginning for Jerry. He has also served in international delegations to Columbia, Honduras and Poland for local organizations like the Centreville Rotary Club and the United Church of Christ. Working solely with private funders, Jerry helped organize the Centreville Labor Resource Center to help immigrants assimilate and find jobs in Northern Virginia, keeping them off the streets and out of parking lots begging for work.

Near and dear to Jerry’s heart is his service as a member and chaplain of the Centreville Station #17 Volunteer Fire Department.
