Jerry was my contact for many years at Zak. Jerry always worked hard to take care of his customers. At first it was all business but soon we spent more of our time talking about family than we did about business. While I never had the opportunity to meet his family, I know that we was very proud of his children and had a wonderful marriage. Last time I saw him was just a few months ago at the Housewares Show in Chicago. While we did not have any business to discuss we still enjoyed talking about what was really important - family. I am very lucky to have worked with and known Jerry and he will certainly be missed.
