It seems like you knew this man. Although I'm not as fortunate to have known him, our prayers are for Jerry and his family during this sad time of loss.

Jerry was a good friend of mine. We knew each other since elementary school. He was a great guy. He was always very careful when riding his motorcycle.
I wish people that own SUV'S would slow down and stop thinking they own the road, rushing to where they have to go so, accidents of this nature wouldn't happen.
My prayers go out to my friend Jerry and his family.
Rest in peace my friend!

People should keep distance and respect all bikers and drivers; we do have the right to live; Try looking thats why god gave you eyes. We all have to right to live; it's bad enough we have to fight to live because of you inconsiderate drivers. Wake UP
