“Jerry was a wonderful and enthuiastic part of the Peoples Temple community. He would bound up any time he could be of help, and was very friendly to everyone. In both San Francisco and in Jonestown, he went out of his way to widen his circle of friends. He seemed to be delighted with the progress being made in Jonestown. ” - Laura Johnston Kohl
