Maurice Jerry Jones, Age 83, was unexpectedly called home to our lord on September 12, 2021 at Cuyahoga County Memorial Hospital.
Jerry was born June 16, 1938 in Conneaut, Ohio to Maurice E. Jones and Ethel Jean (née Kalenack) Jones whom preceded him in death. He was their only child.
Growing up in Lorain, he worked in a restaurant with his mom, played the trumpet, and ran track. He also attended the Evangelical Lutheran Church.
He graduated from Kentucky Military Academy in 1956 and attended college at Ohio University, where he pledged the Delta Pi chapter of Sigma Chi Fraternity. After college he enlisted in the Army and was stationed at Fort Eustis in VA. After his honorable discharge, Jerry started working in the finance department at Firestone where his passion for finances expanded. Soon he was recruited by a family member to become a stockbroker which became a lifelong career. Jerry was still actively working as financial advisor at the time of his passing.
