This is indeed very sad, and I am very sorry to hear the news. Unfortunately I have never had the opportunity to communicate with Jerry directly, but I admire his courage to stand up for his goals.
Unfortunately, as Steve said, Jerrys full story may now never be told, and the photographic evidence may never be shown. I have to admit that based on the newspaper story and the few pictures that go with it, I had doubts about Jerrys story in the beginning. But I trust Steves judgement of the photos and I gladly revise my opinion. I will add a link to Jerrys story in our links section.
Rest in peace, Jerry, I admire your courage.
