Jerry was born into what Time magazine once dubbed the “Silent Generation,” sandwiched between the Greatest Generation and Baby Boomers. From that perspective, he brings his thoughts and observations on living “healthy” in today’s fast-changing, hyper-connected, often “disruptive” digitized world. After college and a hitch in the Army, he’s worked as a reporter, editor, and marketing executive while raising three now-grown children. He says "So much of what’s considered 'healthy' has changed and is often contradicting what I learned growing up."
