He confessed his Christian faith in the Rite of Confirmation at Trinity on April 7, 1963. His Confirmation Pastor was Rev. August Pera.

Jerry graduated from the 8th Grade at Trinity Lutheran School; he graduated from Hanover High School in 1967. From 1967 to 1969 he attended Beloit VoTec and received his degree in electrical engineering. After graduating from Beloit, Jerry enlisted in the United States Navy serving from June 1969 to March 1973, seeing action in Vietnam. 

Jerry served His Lord as a lifelong member of Trinity, as a member of The Youth Choir, and a member of the Walther League.
