Me & You, Remembering.
Jerry is from El Toro, California. He was first sponsored by Ed Templeton for TV, the company Ed started with Mike Vallely when they left the New Deal. Jerry was brought along for the ride for Television and then the start of Toy Machine. After things didn't work out at Toy Machine, he rode for Planet Earth and was part of the original team at Rhythm. His later sponsors would include DNA and Hopps. He was also on Dukes Shoes, Converse, and Pig Wheels over the years. His part in Pig's All Systems Go video from 1997 is a cool little segment. Jerry is an EMT in Boston the last I knew.
Jerry has never been on Vert Is Dead before. He's only been in shared Toy Machine ads up until now. That kind of surprised me.
