He was a 1967 graduate of Lebanon High School and in 1971 he graduated with a bachelor’s degree from Indiana State University.
Jerry worked twenty-one years at Pennsylvania Truck Lines in Avon, IN from 1972 to 1993 and nineteen years at Maplehurst Bakery in Brownsburg from 1995 to 2014, where he retired in 2014. He was the owner of Slapshot Collectibles and also co-owner of Indy Connection Sports Collectibles in Indianapolis with his brother-in-law, Wayne Johnson.
