In 2007, Jerry joined the City of Tustin team, managing economic development and housing activities. From the start, he has been involved with the Chamber and became a board member in 2014. He has been involved in economic development and workforce development efforts for over 25 years, collaborating with businesses, various agencies – including chambers of commerce, local and regional economic development organizations, K-12, community college and universities, community-based organizations and other City and County Departments.
Jerry has been married to his lovely bride, Lisa, since 1986. They have three children: Ryan (1992), Jill (1994), and Morgan (2001). Morgan has a special place in the family as she has Down Syndrome. She brings a beauty to life that is hard to describe. Jerry tries to follow her daily advice to him: 1) Do your best; 2) Keep practicing; 3) Take your time; and 4) Be nice to your friends.
