My most sincere condolences to the Family of Jerry. He was a good man. So wanted him to enjoy retirement. All he said he said he needed was family and enough money for beer and minnows. Rest In Peace

Nancy and family, you have my deepest sympathies and are in our prayers. I had the honor of working with Jerry in the Biomed Department at St. Elizabeth for almost 16 years. Jerry was a great guy and a great co-worker, hard working, always willing to help anyone no matter how busy we were, sharing his vast knowledge, yet making work fun with just talking about work or life, a story, hunting, fishing, archery, or the occasional joke to make us all laugh! The kind of person and co-worker everyone wishes for. I miss working with him every single day.

I interviewed for the open imaging position at St. Elizabeth’s with Chad Ekern and Susan Josko about 3 years ago. As part of the interview, I got a tour of the hospital and introduced to some of the folks that already worked in the Biomed shop.
We started talking about where we spent our tech school years. I mentioned I attended Western Wisconsin Tech in La Crosse. Others in the room said they also attended WWTC and one person said they graduated in 1977. I thought about that for second and thinking that’s weird since I also graduated in 1977! Jerry and I stood in front of each other, sized each other up and we both said, pretty much at the same time – I don’t remember you.
Once back home, I dusted off the yearbook and found both of us.
So much for lasting impressions circa 1977. But I’m very happy we had a chance to reconnect after 39 years.

I remember Jerry from the good old St. E’s days. Sorry to hear about this.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

I had the honor of working with Jerry at St. Es for many years. I cannot tell you the number of times he was able to get our lab instruments back on line. My favorite memory was at our lab picnic where he wore the special fur collared lab coat we made and sang as "Jerry Ross and the Supremes". He was a good sport to put up with us lab folks. I'm devastated to know that he will not get to enjoy his retirement. My sincere condolences to all his family and friends.

I'm so sorry to hear about Jerry's passing! He was one of my favorite coworkers. He always had a smile for everyone and was very willing to help and take care of all of our numerous problems in surgery. His retirement left a big hole at St. E's and his passing leaves a big void in the world.

So sorry to hear about Jerry. Jack and I first met him when our boys played soccer together. Since then I would see him at work (I have worked at St. E's since 1977) - he always greeted me with a smile. He had a great gentleness about him that will be missed. My sons Joe and James also send condolences.
