He is also serving as a Director for the Snohomish County-Camano Association of  REALTORS® as well as on the Executive Board of Directors for the Washington State Association as the incoming Treasurer.  He recently served as Senior Director/Vice President for the Watts Basketball Foundation in Seattle, WA, founded  by former Seattle Supersonics star ‘Slick’ Watts and his son Donald, a former standout student/athlete at the  University of WA. Jerry has been married for more than 37 years.  He and his wife Carol have two grown sons and two beautiful granddaughters.

 “I feel that it is such a privilege to be involved with the EvCC Foundation…an organization committed to helping  students of ALL ages to achieve their dreams and goals of educational advancement. By serving in this small way, I  sense that I’m able to give something of myself back to the communities that have been so supportive over the  years of my family and businesses.”
