He took over the company from his father in 1987 when it was 1 small location in Oakland, CA. He spent his life growing the company to 11 locations in 6 states. He was well known throughout the industry for the personal connections and partnerships he created with his customers. Outside of work, Jerry enjoyed cooking and spending time with his family. Rarely did he cook the same meal twice and everyone was always welcome to have a seat at the table. When not cooking, he spent his time sitting on the back porch looking over the lake while listening to the Beatles loud enough for all to hear. Jerry was preceded in death by his father, Ralph, and his mother, Lottie. He is survived by his wife Judy, his son Jason, his daughter Jennie and his sister Cynthia.
