Jerome was a fourth-generation firefighter and was raised across the street from Citizen’s Fire Company # 1 of Mt. Holly Springs, Pennsylvania, Cumberland County Station 36, of which his family were members. He loved watching the equipment anytime it was outside or whenever he was taken to the station by someone in his family. When he was old enough to cross the street by himself, he spent many hours there and joined as soon as he was of age to become a junior member. He served for 17 years and loved being a firefighter!
Jerome was a loving father to his daughter, Kayla, and his two sons, Wyatt and Zaden, and spent as much time with them as he could. He was an avid outdoorsman. He loved hunting and taking his children fishing. He was also a big fan of auto racing, especially of sprint cars on dirt tracks.
Jerome was a dispatcher for DHL Logistics in Carlisle, Pennsylvania, and was well liked by everyone he worked with. He was a very giving person of his time and would help anyone who asked him, without ever asking for anything in return.
Jerome touched everyone that he helped and helped everyone that he touched without ever really knowing that he did it.
He will be sorely missed by everyone that knew him
