Please offer your thoughts and prayers to Jerry and Michelle

Just this morning I received an email from Jerry containing tragic news. Yesterday while Jerry and Michelle were at work their son Jeremiah Jr. (JJ) passed away while in the care of their day care center.

At 1:12pm on Friday, November 2nd my little robusto passed away at Shady Grove Adventist Hospital on Gaithersburg Md.

His death is being investigated since he was in the care of our daycare while we were at work.

Please pass this along to the SR Community as Michelle and I can use all the thoughts and prayers we can get while we grieve the loss of our 3 month old little robusto.


Please keep Jerry and Michelle in your thoughts and prayers while they struggle through this hard time.

It feels like you guys at SF are all like family as much as I watch your videos. I will definitely keep you and your family in my prayers. Please take comfort in knowing God is probably holding little JJ in his arms right now and you and Michelle will one day see his happy face again.

  56. Jerry & Michelle:

    Just returned from a trip to find this very sad news. Our sincere condolences. Our family is praying for God’s grace and comfort for you and yours.

    Dennis & Diane Lair

  57. I am sorry that I am so late in leaving my condolences. That fact that I am not a frequent visitor here though doesn’t mean that I am any less sorry for your loss. I simply cannot express my sympathies. I know how important our children are to us, and I cannot imagine what you must be going through. Our prayers are with you.

  58. Dear Jerry…I’m new to the site and thought I’d start from beginning and over the course of the past few weeks have loved every review.

    I know that this is late but I hope this finds you well. My heart broke when I got to this post. I feel like I know you, like you and I are best friends from the 3rd grade. I am so sorry for the loss of your Little Robusto. There is nothing I can say that can express my sorrow. I wish there was something I could do or say to take away the unimaginable pain that you must feel.

    My wife and I have just started thinking about children and your loss has reminded me just how precious and a miracle life is.

    They say time heals all wombs and I prey they do…may life be peaceful for you.

  59. Jerry – I found your reviews on YouTube and just started making my way here to see all the videos and great content you have here and not on YouTube when I stumbled onto this post and now it all makes sense when you talk about your reviews being therapy for you.

    My heart sadden when I read this. As a brand new father I cannot imagine the pain you must be feeling. I am so sorry for your loss. I can’t imagine anything more painful than this. Like the above person says “may life be peaceful for you.”

  60. Jerry I saw some other comments on later posts but I can’t believe its almost been a year. I hope you know how proud JJ must be of you. From visiting him all the time to “rock’n the ribbon” for SIDS you’ve made a lot of us aware of SIDS.

    Anyway, I just wanted to let you know that I’m thinking of you, your wife and of course JJ.

  61. Jerry,

    Getting to know you recently, and learning of your loss a few months ago from a BOTL, and seeing this post now, I still feel there is great need to offer a prayer on your family’s behalf. I cannot imagine the strength required to endure such tragedy. You are a brave man, with a brave wife, and I pray for continued blessings. What a joy Gracie must be for your family! Much love, brother.
