Jerome accepted Christ into his life earlier this year and we celebrate that we will see him again.
Jerome enjoyed life to the fullest. He often told stories, did card tricks, and always made his friends laugh. Jerome easily made new acquaintances, especially ones who wore the Kraft-Heinz uniform. He would approach them and ask “Do you know my sisters, Wonnie and Wy? Or brother, Free?” and of course many had to say yes. Besides meeting new people he loved to listen to music; he would often carry around a wireless speaker so he could listen all the time. And like his dad, Jerome loved cars and was always buying one or looking to buy one.
Jerome had many friends and some special friends in his life, Shannon Johnson and Shadeena Ridgeway and a host favorite nieces, nephews and friends. The family encourages everyone to cherish the memories you have of him and he will live on in our hearts.
The family would like to give a special thank you to Raiya Hancock for the comfort and care she provided Jerome.
